West Bromwich Albion vs Liverpool Preview and Prediction 2021

West Bromwich Albion vs Liverpool predictions for Sunday’s Premier League battle at The Hawthorns. Liverpool continue their quest for a top-four finish with a test against the relegated Baggies. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Liverpool have kept only three clean sheets in their last nine league games.

Liverpool have won five and drawn two of their last seven league fixtures.

Liverpool’s top-four incentive

Liverpool blitzed old rivals Manchester United 4-2 at Old Trafford on Thursday evening, capitalising on their host’s lethargy to claim three vital points in the race for a top-four finish.

The Reds looked back to their hard-pressing and penetrative best in Manchester where two-goal Roberto Firmino was their standout performer, and a similar display at West Brom should produce a similar result.

With the inexperienced Nathaniel Phillips and Rhys Williams paired at centre-half, Liverpool were carved open on numerous occasions themselves by United however, and the same duo could struggle to keep a clean sheet again when they take on a physical Baggies outfit in the West Midlands.

Albion down and out

West Brom’s relegation and return to the second-tier was confirmed with their 3-1 reverse at Arsenal last week, and though they showed spirit against the Gunners, their lack of quality again let them down.

Baggies boss Sam Allardyce said “words cannot describe” how much it hurts to suffer his first relegation from the Premier League and it’s still unclear whether the ex-England boss will stay with WBA in the Championship next term.

Win but no clean sheet for Liverpool?

With Chelsea and Leicester involved in FA Cup final action on Saturday, Liverpool could close to within one point of fourth spot with a victory at The Hawthorns and we don’t expect the Reds to let their chance slip.

Jurgen Klopp’s men should be in confident mood following their thumping triumph at Old Trafford, and Liverpool are worth backing to win at West Brom as a result.

The Merseysiders could find it tough to keep the Baggies off the scoresheet however. Liverpool have kept only three clean sheets in their last nine league assignments, and their youthful paring at centre-back will be tested by a WBA team that notched in all but one of their last five fixtures.

With that in mind, bettors could find joy backing the Liverpool win and both teams to score combination for Sunday, while our correct score prediction settles on a 3-1 away win.

West Brom shipped three goals in recent meetings with Leicester and Arsenal, and Liverpool have the stardust in attack to bury a trio of chances against the division’s worst defence.
