Gomez urges Reds to make Brom suffer

Pardew was disappointed with the performance at Swansea, where the Baggies lost 1-0 to the bottom side, and said it didn't reflect what he's seen on the training pitch.

West Brom are in awful form and their recently appointed new manager - Alan Pardew also has not been able to turn their fortunes around by too much.

The Merseysiders were halted in their attacking endeavours by a resilient Everton side in Sunday's derby, with the Toffees doing enough to earn a 1-1 draw against their bitter rivals. I haven't even looked at January this week because of the tight schedule of the games.

West Brom have their lowest points tally after 16 games of a Premier League season since 2008-09 (12); winning 13 of a possible 48 so far this season. Jay Rodriguez's pace and Salomon Rondon's physicality will test the depleted Liverpool backline from set-pieces and counter-attacks.

West Brom will be without Barry G.

Ahead of the game, Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this morning and he's offered reporters a team news and injury update. The pair are expected to return to the starting line-up, having been introduced as substitutes against the Toffees.

"Adam is back in training but needs to build up again", Klopp said.

Liverpool will check on the fitness of striker Daniel Sturridge for the Premier League clash at Anfield after he missed the derby with a hamstring problem.

West Brom are 17th after being beaten by fellow strugglers Swansea in their last match, while third-placed Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 10 games in all competitions.

Matip, despite hopes for a brief and largely precautionary layoff for his thigh strain, isn't running yet, and a precise timeframe for Moreno's recovery from his ankle injury remains unknown.

With the Reds in fantastic form in the final third, though, it is Betsafe's 10/11 (1.91) quote for Klopp's men to score more than two goals against the Baggies that could represent best value for punters here.

"It is not that you get used to it, you expect it from them because you know how good they are".

Liverpool play at Bournemouth on Sunday so might look to change things up again for West Brom.

The Reds are unbeaten in their last 14 matches at Anfield in all competitions (W8, D6) since last April.
