Fourth place Liverpool travel to Birmingham to take on eighth place West Bromwich Albion on Sunday (16 April) at The Hawthorns.

Where to watch

Kick-off is set for 1.30pm BST. Live coverage of the game is available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary is available on BBC Radio Live 5.


Liverpool will be looking to consolidate their place in the top four with a win over in form West Brom. Jurgen Klopp's men bounced back from their 2-2 home draw with Bournemouth to come from behind and defeat Stoke City 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium.

Currently on fourth place with 63 points, the Merseysiders are six points clear of sixth place Manchester United and even as Jose Mourinho's men have two games in hand, a win for Liverpool against West Brom would heap further pressure on them.

While they are unbeaten against the top teams this season, Liverpool have struggled against the smaller sides and Klopp will be hoping his men battle against complacency at West Brom.

For the away trip, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho should return to the starting eleven after featuring as substitutes against Stoke. Meanwhile, Klopp is expecting injured midfield duo Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana return to the squad by the end of the month.

As for West Brom, while they are currently performing above expectations and find themselves in eighth place, they have been winless in their last three league games since defeating Arsenal last month.

With two losses in their last two games as well as four losses in their last six games, Tony Pulis' side need a positive result against Liverpool.

The good news is that they have only lost to Liverpool at home once in the last six meetings and with the visitors' dodgy away form, the Baggies have a chance of ending their new blip.

As for team news, Pulis only revealed that one or two unnamed players will be assessed as they are nursing bruises.

What managers say

Tony Pulis: "The target is to get as many points as we can. And we want performances. We want the players to go out and put good performances in. It's going to be a really tough game because they have a lot to play for," via BBC Sport.

Jurgen Klopp: "West Brom have all our respect and all our concentration. We will try to be at our best. West Brom have had an outstanding season. Last two or three matches they didn't score but (that's) nothing we should think about. Maybe they are the most experienced team in the Premier League. [They have] a lot of things that cause us problems," via BBC Sport.
