Liverpool vs. West Brom Match Analysis and Prediction

Champions will be looking to solidify their stance at the Premier League’s top when they host West Brom at Anfield. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 7:30 pm.

The Reds are four points clear at the top of the table following last weekend’s 7-0 hammering of Crystal Palace, but in Sam Allardyce, they face the last visiting manager to come away with a league victory at Anfield.

It dates back to April 23, was the last time Liverpool lost a game at home, 1,344 days- three years and eight months- and 66 matches have passed since then. And on Sunday, Allardyce will be looking to repeat the achievement.

Allardyce was in charge of Crystal Palace that day but finds himself with a much bigger task while bringing West Brom to Anfield off the back of a 3-0 home defeat at Aston Villa’s hands in his first match at the helm.

Their 7-0 win against Crystal Palace marked their biggest ever top-flight victory away from home. The match saw seven different players assist a goal for the team in a single game for the first time in the Premier League history.

A loss in the West Midlands Derby was the last stretch for Slaven Bilic, sacked with Allardyce. The Baggies are currently in 19th spot with five points from safety.
