West Brom v Liverpool: Can the Baggies stop the SAS?

Bookmark and Share

It's been a terrible weekend for West Brom and they haven't even lined up against the SAS yet!

Saturday's results could not have gone any worse for the Baggies, as wins for Cardiff City, West Ham United, Sunderland and Stoke City put Pepe Mel right in the midst of a relegation battle.

The Baggies start the day just outside the bottom three on goal difference. However, a 3-0 defeat this afternoon will see them swap places with West Ham - and with Suarez and Sturridge coming to town, anything is possible.

Suarez happyLiverpool head down the M6 in buoyant mood after thrashing their city rivals Everton in midweek and a place in the Champions League is theirs to lose. West Brom famously beat the Reds at the Hawthorns last season when Steve Clark marked his debut as Albion boss, but there's no sign that there will be any slip-up here today.

West Brom will be without former Liverpool marksman Nicolas Anelka and Stephane Sessegnon through injury, leaving the manager with a selection problem. Brendan Rodgers has no such worries.

It's so tight at the foot of the table that a win for West Brom will see them climb above Stoke in 11th. Meanwhile, victory for Liverpool will see them close the gap on Chelsea - who face Manchester City tomorrow night - to just one point.

Liverpool have been all but written off in the title race, but there's still a long way to go this season. They have some huge games coming up and they will have a huge say in the destination of this season's title. However, they must get the job done today. They slipped up against Hull City and can ill afford a similar blip again.

SQF Prediction: 1-3
