West Brom v Liverpool: Resurgent Reds can punish faltering hosts

| 15.04.2017

Barring that memorable win over free-falling Arsenal, West Bromwich Albion have been plummeting themselves. And the visit of Liverpool this Easter Sunday is unlikely to spark an upturn in fortunes. 

The Baggies have been pretty abject since the start of March, losing four of their last six Premier League games while failing to score in five of those encounters.

With that in mind the 6/4 for Liverpool to keep a clean sheet looks a decent bet.

However, we can do even better than that.

The Reds are 10/11 favourites to take all three points with West Brom 16/5 and the draw priced at 13/5. That latter option is attractive when you factor in that the points have been shared on each of Liverpool’s last three visits to the Hawthorns.

However, with Tony Pulis’ side in such rank form we’re not about to place our faith in them.

Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino turned the game for Jurgen Klopp’s men at Stoke City last week with the former’s strike meaning he’s netted in three straight games.

Coutinho is 11/2 to open the scoring and 15/8 to net at any time with Firmino 4/1 and 7/5 in the same respective markets.

Elsewhere, Divock Origi is becoming a more influential player, as evidenced by his recent strikes against Everton and Bournemouth. It’s 11/5 for the Belgian to score in an away win.

For the hosts, defender Gareth McAuley is the joint top-scorer alongside Salomon Rondon and if we were pushed to choose between the two we’d go with the Northern Irishman to get on the scoresheet at 6s.
