Liverpool play West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on 15 May on the final day of the season where both teams have nothing to play for as per their league position. The Reds are currently in eighth spot, one point adrift of seventh placed Southampton and three adrift of sixth placed West Ham, but their main focus will be on next week's Europa League final where a win will get them a spot in the Champions League for the upcoming season.

Where to watch

Kick-off is set for 3pm BST. Highlights of the game will be available on BBC Match of the Day on BBC One at 10.30pm BST.


West Brom have had an underhwleming season by Tony Pulis' standards and will be looking to end it on a high, which could take them up to 12th spot if other results go their way. The former Stoke City manager has revealed that he has no intentions of quitting the club now and is likely to remain the manager until next season, having saved the Baggies from getting embroiled in a relegation battle.

On the other hand, Jurgen Klopp will have want to clinch the Europa league title as a win not only will end their trophy drought, but also get them a spot in next year's Champions League. Should they manage to pull one over Sevilla, they will be able to attract top talent from across Europe and challenge for the Premier League title next season.

What managers say

Tony Pulis on Klopp: "He's an interesting character, they have bought into what he's going to do. There's been a big piece which has come out and said he's going to train them three times a day in pre-season, which is lovely. It's what we've done for 20 years in my management career. He wants to get them fit and running around. They are top players so I expect them to do well. He knows the German league very well, I expect him to bring in a couple of players from there as well."

Jurgen Klopp: "In these 90 minutes, it makes no sense to think about anything else and that is what we have to learn. If you want to be 100 per cent successful, you have to be 100 per cent in the situation you are in at this moment. It is not about having 50 per cent or 30 per cent concentration for another thing, that is not how professional football works. If we can't do it in this moment, then we have to learn to do it in the future but if we can't do it on Sunday, then there is no chance to get anything at West Brom.
