West Brom vs Liverpool: Reds in determined mood

Kick-off: 1630, 16/05/2021

Stadium: The Hawthorns

TV: Sky Sports

Liverpool were back on fire as an attacking force when beating Manchester United on Thursday and will now be expected to brush aside West Brom.

The Reds know that three more wins to finish off the season will earn them a Champions League spot and Jurgen Klopp will call for more clinical finishing up front.

We’re taking 13/10 for the visitors to win both halves at The Hawthorns for our first West Brom vs Liverpool prediction.

A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds

West Brom’s relegation was confirmed when they went down 3-1 at Arsenal, despite Matheus Pereira scoring a fine consolation for the Baggies.

Captain Kyle Bartley insists Albion will not be downing tools as the season comes to a close, though.

“I’m really proud of the way everyone kept going and that’s all you can ask for,” he told the club website.

“It’s a great honour to lead this team out and our focus now is to go out fighting because the fans will be back soon and we want to put on a show to get them excited for next season.

“Hopefully, when we come back in pre-season, we’ll be ready to mount a charge to come straight back up again.”

It should be noted that Albion have only drawn a blank once in their last six outings – and their opponents here do still look open at the back.

That makes 8/5 for an away win and both teams to score catch the eye from the West Brom vs Liverpool odds.

Last West Brom line-up: Johnstone, Furlong, Bartley, Ajayi, Townsend, Phillips, Gallagher, Yokuslu, Robinson, Pereira, Diagne.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

Liverpool’s top-four hopes were given a boost by results elsewhere and they seemed to be spurred on by that when winning 4-2 at Old Trafford.

The Reds looked up against it when a deflected Bruno Fernandes shot went in and then they had a penalty chalked off following video reviews.

However, Diogo Jota’s opportunist strike levelled things up before Roberto Firmino bagged a fine brace either side of the break.

Marcus Rashford gave United hope of a late rally but Mohamed Salah made sure of the points with a well-taken breakaway goal.

“I think it was really deserved against a team in form,” beamed Klopp. “I am really, really pleased with the way we played. We had difficult moments but it makes a good result.”

Jota justified being given a place in the starting line-up ahead of Sadio Mane and the former Wolves star would love to net again versus his old team’s Black Country rivals.

Let’s add 5/6 for Jota to score in an away win to our West Brom vs Liverpool betting tips, along with 20/1 for him to break the deadlock in a 3-1 triumph.

Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Robertson, Williams, Phillips, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Thiago, Jota, Firmino, Salah.
