Liverpool vs West Brom Prediction: Premier League Match on 27.12.2020
The Premier League champions return to action on Sunday afternoon when they host relegation-threatened West Brom at Anfield from 16:30 GMT. This looks, on paper, to be a great chance for Liverpool to strengthen their title defence with another three points but followers of the Premier League know nothing can be taken for granted this season. Will the Reds get the job done or can the Baggies pull off an upset?
Reds put seven past Palace
Liverpool opened Christmas week top of the Premier League with their stats showing nine wins and four draws against one defeat, scoring 36 goals while conceding 19. The 31 points claimed puts them four ahead of nearest rivals Leicester City and Jurgen Klopp’s men already hold an eight points advantage over pre-season title favourites Manchester City, although the Cityzens do have a game in hand over the pace-setters.
Klopp watched his men secure back-to-back wins when hammering Crystal Palace 7-0 in London on Saturday in what was a remarkable show of strength. That result and performance served as a reminder to others in the league exactly what the Reds are capable of and it was also a warning to West Brom ahead of this game.
Baggies second from bottom
West Brom face the unenviable task of taking on the champions on their patch and they do so on the back of a woeful start to the season that has pulled them down to second from bottom of the league table. The visitors have managed to win just one of their first 14 games, drawing four and losing the other nine.
The seven points gained has them five ahead of bottom club Sheff Utd and three behind Fulham and safety. West Brom have picked up just one of the last dozen points that have been available to them and they were beaten 3-0 by Aston Villa at the weekend following a stunning 1-1 draw at Man City in the game before.
Liverpool vs West Brom prediction
The league form of both clubs suggests this will be a home win for Liverpool but West Brom proved how dangerous it is to write them off when drawing with Man City at the Etihad Stadium earlier this month. They’d view another share of the spoils as a massive result here.
