Liverpool v West Brom: Visitors to capitalise on Reds’ poor form
The anguish for Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool continues after defeat to Basel in the Champions League last time out made it one win in the last six for the Merseyside club.
Their next assignment pits them against a side experiencing the opposite fortunes, as West Brom have transformed a winless start to the season into a string of three consecutive wins:
Will the form tell at Anfield? Here’s our three best bets for the match:
Given the continued struggles the Reds have had integrating their flock of new signings into Rodgers’ desired style, and West Brom’s resurgence, it would be foolhardy not to take the Baggies to extend Liverpool’s woes.
Not only that, but the midlands outfit are used to being a thorn in last season’s runners-up’s side, having won on two of their last three visits to Anfield.
In the last six editions of this fixture on Liverpool’s turf, either one or both teams have failed to find the back of the net five times.
West Brom will have been welcomed into the inner circle of this punt’s fans long ago, having participated in five matches already this season in which a bet on one or both teams failing to score has landed.
Having forged their path last season on the back of quick starts, Liverpool’s problems this term can perhaps be traced to their sluggishness at kickoff.
Both of their last two outings have ended in a 0-0 stalemate in the first half, while five of their six top-flight first periods have seen one goal or less scored.
