English Premier League – Round 36
Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion – 16th May
Watch as Liverpool aims to bag The Baggie
An undefeated force since last season, the Premier League standings have been looking good for Liverpool. Ever since have bagged the Premier League title last year, they have been on a momentous win, sealing the deal for several teams along the way.
With the right moves and a strategic climb across the table, Liverpool may just emerge victoriously or would definitely land themselves a position among the top four – and so far that definitely seems to be on their agenda. Their last two games have seen them move with precision, make calculated decisions, and tackle Manchester United and Southampton by winning with a difference of two goals in both games.
The next in their cap is West Bromwich Albion, a team that stands among the bottom tier on the Premier League table. However, this match is just as instrumental as the next, as it may dictate the fate of Liverpool this season. Left with only two other matches against Burnley and Crystal Palace, this game has to be played with just as much determination and vigour.
Predicted Line-Up: Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nathaniel Phillips, Rhys Williams, Andrew Robertson, Thiago, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mané
West Bromwich Albion
A basement team that has all but secured its place in the bottom four, West Bromwich Albion has played thirty-five games thus far from which only five were won, eleven were a draw, and a whooping nineteen were losses. Although they have been playing well recently with one meritorious win against Chelsea, their overall performance has not been one to brag about and has landed them in the position they secure today.
That said, they are not to be taken lightly. While West Bromwich Albion does not have much to lose, the other team certainly does. West Bromwich Albion could very well be the barrier between Liverpool and their rank among the top four teams ending on the Premier League table.
Predicted Line-Up: Sam Johnstone, Dara O’Shea, Semi Ajayi, Kyle Bartley, Conor Townsend, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Matheus Pereira, Conor Gallagher, Darnell Furlong, Okay Yokuslu, Mbaye Diagne, Matheus Pereira
The Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion game will be held on the home grounds of West Bromwich Albion – The Hawthorns, West Bromwich. This does not offer an advantage to either team, as West Bromwich has shared a fairly similar result whether or not they are playing at home. This stands true for Liverpool as well, who have been seen to make some phenomenal successes even while playing outside.
With Liverpool holding odds of 1.22 and West Bromwich getting 11 with a draw of 7, the odds of this game come as no surprise to anyone. If there is anything to be seen from the last time Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion shared the ground, it is that anything can happen. However, the most likely result would be a clean victory over West Bromwich Albion or a draw between the two clubs.
Considering Liverpool stands as fifth on the table and West Bromwich comes in as the second last, the tip for this game is to follow your gut and trust the table. If a miracle had to appear, it would have happened by now. If Liverpool successfully puts up the performance they have been playing, the game will likely result in a victory.
