WBA – Liverpool: 16th April 2017
West Bromwich is exactly the style of Liverpool team that makes them feel uncomfortable: aggressive defense, top, beating strikers and midfielders with great effort capacity. Tony Pulis knows what is going to block them on “cormorant” and Klopp’s team will never be able to do the usual possession game in this trip.
Liverpool showed many times this season that may be vulnerable to construction and defense and the WBA will fully test midfielders red and white. A draw would not be a surprising result, but scored quickly could open duel. Hosts is the performance advantage at set-pieces, so pay attention to the corners.
The tour was 2-1 to Liverpool
The tour was 2-1 to Liverpool at Anfield, a hard win, but “cormorants” have never lost against white-blue 7 duels! In their last 3 direct always marked both teams, which somewhat surprising if you consider the defensive nature of the band Tony Pulis. WBA has but the best season in the Premier League in modern history and lack of pressure will cause hosts to submit to your height against a team with problems.
WBA has not scored in 5 of its last 6 games. It’s time!
It is true that WBA is not shaped and has two consecutive failures and three games in a row without scored (one of them a 0-0 Man. United). But surely the hosts will motivate additional duel with Liverpool and 1.50 share for a goal scored by West Brom’s attractive. Liverpool’s fit and has not lost for a long time, being involved in spectacular games: in 6 of its last 7 games were scored at least 3 goals! Last three direct duels in this stadium ended in a draw and the balance is evident today.
