Liverpool will lock horns with West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon as they look to secure another victory on the road in the Premier League and get one step closer towards securing a top-four place at the end of this campaign. The Reds managed to earn a 4-2 victory over Manchester United in midweek, which will give them a lot of confidence going into this clash.
Jurgen Klopp will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to name an unchanged team for this game. We can expect Diogo Jota to get the nod to start on the left flank while Sadio Mane waits for his chance to shine off the bench.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face West Brom
Alisson Becker will function in between the sticks for the Merseyside outfit after shipping in two goals against the Red Devils in his last outing. Rhys Williams will resume his defensive partnership with Nathaniel Phillips at the heart of Klopp’s defence as they look to keep the Baggies at bay this weekend.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will be a nailed-on starter at right-back while Andrew Robertson looks to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and create some decent chances from the wide areas.
Neco Williams and Konstantinos Tsimikas will be available for selection on the bench as they offer cover for the full-back positions.
Georginio Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara will operate as the central midfielders for the Reds. Their main focus would be to press the opposition high up the field and create some clear-cut chances for their teammates up top on the counter.
Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will have to settle for a spot on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the second half if required.
Diogo Jota will get another shot to impress down the left flank while Mohamed Salah looks to produce a dazzling display from the right. Roberto Firmino scored a brace in midweek which will do his confidence a world of good. We can expect the Brazilian striker to lead the line for the Merseysiders down the middle.
Sadio Mane and Divock Origi could provide some firepower off the bench if Klopp decides to opt for their services.
