Michael Owen predicts Liverpool v West Brom
By Amir Mir
Michael Owen expects Liverpool to bounce back from the disappointing performance against Manchester United by beating West Brom on Saturday evening.
The Reds recorded a goalless draw against United on Monday night, which halted Jurgen Klopp’s charge up the Premier League table.
Albion manager Tony Pulis is unbeaten against the Merseyside club in eight Premier League appearances, as he travels to Anfield for a tough away fixture.
Nonetheless, former Reds striker Owen believes Klopp’s men will take the lead from the half-time break and go on to register another victory at home.
“Tony Pulis is unbeaten in his last eight PL games against Liverpool,” Owen wrote in his Bet Victor column. “But I see the Reds bouncing back from what was a disappointing performance against Manchester United earlier in the week.”
