Match Preview & Team News: Jurgen Klopp will be once again without Daniel Sturridge who pulled his hamstring leading up europa league action midweek but he will be delighted to have Liverpool’s best player this season in Philipe Coutinho who made a sub appearance from the bench against Sion in midweek. Liverpool are likely to field Benteke, Lallana and Ibe as front three while Captain Jordan Henderson, Lucas Laiva and Emre Can to hold mifield positions. Lovren and Skrtek should keep their place in central defense while Clybe and Moreno to play as full backs.
West Brom on the other hand will have Rondon, McLean and Gardner in attacking roles while Fletcher, Morrison and Evans set to take midfield roles. While the back four will be Dawson, Brunt, Ollson and McAulley. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Sunday evening.

Liverpool need to be at their best if they were to get all three points against West Brom at Anfield. I am going with a narrow 2-1 win for Liverpool with Benteke scoring a brace against a fragile West Brom defense.
