Stan Collymore predicts Liverpool v West Brom
By Will Butcher
Stan Collymore believes Liverpool will secure all three points against Tony Pulis’ West Brom.
Liverpool have won away in the league just six times this season, as their top four Premier League chances hang in the balance with Man United and Arsenal breathing down their necks.
However, former Reds attacker Collymore claimed on his personal Twitter account that Jurgen Klopp’s side will secure a 2-1 away win against the Baggies to consolidate their top-four slot.
Sunderland 1 West Ham 1
Watford 2 Swansea 1
Southampton 1 Man City 3
WBA 1 Liverpool 2
United 0 Chelsea 2

In the reverse fixture, Klopp watched from the Anfield dugout as goals from Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho secured a 2-1 win against the Baggies back in October.
Liverpool come into the game in a rich vein of form after a shaky start to 2017, winning four of their last six outings against the likes of Everton, Arsenal and Stoke.

That momentum could see them secure a repeat of October’s result, but the Baggies will look to rely on their home form that has seen them win nine of their 16 games at the Hawthorns.
Liverpool will be without Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane for the trip to face West Brom, while the Baggies have a clean bill of health ahead of the clash.
Three points for Klopp’s side could move them within two points of second placed Tottenham if Spurs lose to Bournemouth at White Hart Lane.
