    Premier League LIVE: West Bromwich Albion vs. Liverpool

    Probable Lineups:

    West Bromwich Albion (4-3-3): Foster, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Morrison, Yacob, Mulumbu, Amalfitano, Anichebe, Brunt

    An injury to Nicholas Anelka in the Midlands Derby loss to Villa means Morgan Amalfitano will be looking for a starting berth on the right wing, with Christ Brunt on the left supporting lone striker Victor Anichebe.  With the relegation battle so tight this year, West Brom will really need a good result to push them away from the bottom three.

    Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet, Flanagan, Skrtel, K Toure’, Cissokho, Coutinho, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Suárez, Sturridge

    Buoyed by their 4-0 thrashing of Merseyside neighbors Everton, Brendan Rodgers could very well name an unchanged side as they attempt to hold on to their current Champions League position.  The Reds have the undesired trait of performing under par against lesser opposition and must be vary of complacency against the Baggies.

    What the fans are saying…
    Remember this?

    A fan’s view of Luis Suarez’s hat-trick goal against West Brom earlier this year.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    The last time Luis Suarez played against the Baggies, he bagged a hat-trick and will be unfazed by the Hawthorns crowd.  Expect him to produce a similar performance again.

    Stats to get your head around…

    West Bromwich Albion vs. Liverpool: An Alternative Preview

    West Brom have won just three of their last 15 Barclays Premier League games at the Hawthorns (D6 L6)

    Liverpool have only failed to score in one of their last 13 Barclays Premier League away games and have netted 33 in that run.

    However, the Reds have kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 trips on the road and conceded 20 times in those matches.

    After losing the first nine Premier League meetings with Liverpool, West Brom have won four of the last six (two defeats).

    Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have played a combined 33 Premier League games this season and scored 36 goals.

    Daniel Sturridge has found the net in 12 of his 15 Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season.

    Liverpool have scored 37 first half goals this season, 10 more than West Brom have in total (27) in the Premier League in 2013-14 so far.

    Liverpool have scored in each of their last 13 Premier League games, averaging 3.1 goals per game over this period (40 goals in total).

    Luis Suarez has matched his league goal total from last season in just 18 appearances (compared to 33 in 2012/13).

    Liverpool have made fewer substitutions than any other Premier League side this season (53).
