West Brom and Liverpool both will be looking for successful start at their Premier league debut match for this season. With West Brom having an home advantage, they might look to stop the reds.
Saturday, 18th April, The Hawthorns
Rodgers would spend almost everything he has in his squad to come up with a win in his first ever domestic match with Liverpool. With fans having every hope on Rodgers, he would certainly try everything to gain reds a 3 points lead in the table.
Similarly West Brom would not be leaving any chance they have to gain 3 points in their home. With 5 summer transfers already added, West Brom will provide better clash to Rodger’s side after loan client Lukaku expresses his satisfaction to be with the Baggies.
West Brom did not enjoy better friendly results as they were able to win just a single match in their last 5 clashes. Although they got defeated in three matches, they never made the scoreline flow away as the Baggies were able to narrow the scores. The fact that they did not score in their 3 recent friendly matches shows some weakness of the team but never to forget, Belgium International’s addition to the squad on a loan deal with Chelsea will help the team to improve forward in their formation.
Reds have been fine in their recent forms and built quite better impression with their new Manager. They look settled with Rodgers as they already are settling with Rodger’s tactics which make them play attacking football with numerous successful passes. They enjoyed three win, which also included Borini’s debut goal for the team. Their win included two successful matches which was a home and away at the Europa qualifications against FC Gomel.
Addition of Allen and return of Lucas will make Rodgers concentrate in the midfield, They might be playing in a diamond formation 4-4-2 and it is probable that two strikers will be playing with one ahead of another. Suarez might play up front while Borini may be just one step behind Suarez.
West Brom might be playing a 4-4-2 diamond formation either.
West Brom: Will be added Soon.
Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique, Gerrard, Lucas, Allen, Downing, Borini, Suarez
Liverpool: Return of Lucas from a long term injury has made him worth to watch as his thirst to return in the league matches can benefit Liverpool under the supervision of new boss. Similarly Allen and Borini has lots of eye on them as they have their test started with the Anfield related club. Since Allen is capable to play great passing football, he will be worth watching in the match.
West Brom: Chelsea striker Lukaku has revealed his frustration at Chelsea. Despite of his entrance at Stamford bridge as a star, the Belgium international never got his chances to feature for the blues. So Lukaku’s aggression on the field is expected to entertain the fan.
West Brom 1:1 Liverpool
