Liverpool welcome West Brom to Anfield on Sunday, as they look to put behind the shambles at Newcastle United last weekend and get back to winning ways. Jurgen Klopp, who was disappointed last week will hope that his players get the three points against the Baggies.

The Reds manager is still without first choice centre-back Mamadou Sakho, and Daniel Sturridge is facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering an injury setback following his recent comeback.

West Brom, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last three games and will look to continue their good run. They have already recorded a win over Arsenal this season, and Tony Pulis will set up his team to take away at least a point away from Anfield.

Liverpool have won 19 and lost just two of the last 25 league games against West Brom at Anfield.

What managers say

Jurgen Klopp: "We have to be concentrated. How we defend set plays is okay, it could always be better, but we have to be very, very concentrated in these situations. The best thing would be to avoid most of them. Of course you can't avoid all of them, but we don't have to make silly fouls wherever on the pitch because I think they take each one [as an attacking] set play with a lot of bodies in the box and so on. It's a challenge."

Tony Pulis [on Klopp]: "He looks bright and breezy and his command of the English language is excellent. He looks as though he'll be here to stay. He is a fantastic manager, his record shows he has been a top manager in Germany. He did an exceptional job there. He has got one of the best clubs in England with some top players."
