Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Despite producing a fine display in the Premier League derby against Manchester United, Liverpool managed to pick up only one point from Monday’s clash. The Reds, though, stayed in the race for the Premier League trophy and Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to return to winning ways in the English top flight when they welcome West Bromwich Albion at their Anfield on Saturday evening. Liverpool have already netted nine goals at home ground in the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign and seeing that the Baggies are not regarded as good travellers, we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Saturday’s football match. A win over WBA could see Liverpool climb to top position in the Premier League standings. It has to be noted that the Baggies recorded their last win at Anfield back in 2013, but we do not believe that they are capable of upsetting Jurgen Klopp’s team this time out.
