West Brom v Liverpool Preview, Premiership, Sunday 2nd February 2014

West Brom are just 3pts above the relegation places and with just one victory coming in their last thirteen games they are looking more and more likely to becoming involved in a fight for survival over the next couple of months and things don’t get any easier for them in this game as they play host to the free scoring Liverpool.

Liverpool fans will be quite excited as to what the next few months holds for their club as with the partnership of Suarez and Sturridge work extremely well for them this season they surely can’t be counted out of the title race just yet, especially with Brendan Rogers side still having to play Manchester City at Anfield Stadium and I would expect the majority of football coupons around the country to have Liverpool down as an away win in this game.

West Brom Team News:

The hosts will be without Goran Popov and Sessegnon for this game as both players continue to receive treatment for respective injury problems.

Liverpool Team News:

The visitors are still without the services of Glenn Johnson, Daniel Agger, Jose Enrique and Leiva Lucas as they all all continue to receive treatment for respective injury problems.

The previous 5 meetings below in our head to head statistics show West Brom with a slight advantage having won 3 times with Liverpool having won 2.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

291 goals have been scored in the previous 110 games played between the two clubs over the years which provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.64 and with there having been 153 goals scored at the Hawthorns Stadium from the previous 55 matches played, this gives us an average goals per game statistic of 2.78.

Both average goals per game statistics seem to suggest that this game on sunday lunch time should see at least a couple of goals scored.

West Brom v Liverpool Recent Form (Left to Right)

West Brom: W L L D L

Liverpool: W W D W W

Liverpool have the clear advantage on the recent form statistics having managed to win 4 and draw 1 of their previous 5 matches played. West Brom have struggled having managed just 1 victory from their last 5 games of which they have lost 3 and drawn 1 of the other 4.

West Brom v Liverpool Match Betting Odds Market

West Brom are not having the best of results lately and are moving closer each week to the dreaded relegation places and with just one victory in their last thirteen matches played it should not come as much of a surprise to see the online bookmakers offering up a best price of 9/2 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) for the hosts to make it win number two from fourteen games played.

The Draw last happened way back on the 6th October 1984 between these two clubs and with Liverpool on a completely different level this season and West Brom struggling to win games, it does seem an unlikely outcome as the current best odds of 16/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) clearly indicate.

Liverpool are playing some excellent stuff this season and for me look good to obtain a place in the Champions League next season if they can keep their star players free from injury and their current best price of 4/6 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) although short, does look value considering they have two goalscoring machines up front in Suarez and Sturridge.

West Brom v Liverpool Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Liverpool look the clear winners of this game based on their performances seen so far this season, but we should not forget that West Brom have had the better results over recent season’s when these two sides have met each other both home and away and if the hosts were in better recent form than they currently are I certainly would not be too quick to jump on the away win here.

West Brom have only managed one victory from their last thirteen league matches played and as we saw midweek against Aston Villa, their defence has more holes than a kitchen colander I really can’t see them being able to produce a shock victory come sunday afternoon.

The average goals per game statistics are expecting this match to see at least a couple of goals scored and with the form that both Suarez and Sturridge are in this season those two players have to be on your short list for First Goalscorer and Anytime Goalscorer in this one.

However, despite Liverpool being a bit short, they do look an absoloute banker in this game and for me look well worth playing on the Asian Handicap to win this game by at least two goals.
