West Bromwich Albion vs liverpool FC - English Premier League

Liverpool team couldn’t be happier to see the international break approaching. With Mario Balotelli sputtering and firing blanks for his new club, the absence of Daniel Sturridge has become increasingly more evident. They desperately need the Englishman’s finishing touch, and outside of a 2:2 penalty shootout victory over Middlesbrough in the League Cup, they have scored just 5 goals in their last 5 competitive matches since he landed on the treatment table. The thinking here is they will not rush him back into action this weekend, instead opting to rest him until after the international break. But the Reds can’t take much more bad news if they hope to find themselves in the top 4 come season’s end, as they currently sit in 14th place with just 7 points from 6 contests. After a disappointing 1:0 defeat to Basel in their UCL midweek game, the hosts must find a way to ignite their stale attack and solidify their leaky defence. A home match with West Brom is a very winnable game for the hosts, but they must iron out the small details and keep focused throughout the full 90 minutes to do so.
West Bromwich have enjoyed quite a fine few weeks, turning around a poor start to the season that had seen them claim just 1 point from their first 3 matches. But manager Alan Irvine finally has his men adapting to the way he wants them to play, and 3 straight victories in all competitions has the fans and players alike in great spirits. After snagging a massive 1:0 road win over Tottenham, the Baggies made an impressive late comeback against Hull City in the Capital One Cup to claim all of the spoils and then absolutely dismantled Burnley last time out 4:0. Talented young striker Saido Berahino will be giving England international manager Roy Hodgson a reason to take notice, as the hit-man has now scored 3 goals in their last 2 matches, taking his season tally to 5. The big man in camp was supposed to be record-signing Brown Ideye, but Berahino has stolen the spotlight and will be a vital cog in West Brom’s 2014-2015 campaign. While a road trip to Anfield isn’t typically ideal, the visitors will know that the hosts are struggling and will be confident of securing at least a point here.
