Liverpool will be looking to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table. The Reds have won all their home games this season so far.
West Bromwich Albion have the unenviable task of taking on Liverpool this Sunday as their battle to scrape enough points to secure survival continues.
LIVERPOOL VS WEST BROM PREVIEW:
Liverpool haven’t lost a home game since 23rd April 2017 and 66 matches have passed since then, and on Sunday, Allardyce will look to repeat the achievement.
Allardyce was in charge of Crystal Palace on the monumental day of the Red’s loss. Currently, he finds himself with a much bigger task bringing West Brom to Anfield off the back of a 3-0 home defeat at the hands of Aston Villa in his first match at the helm.
The Reds are heading into this game on the back of a 7-0 victory against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, and they will be looking to stretch their unbeaten run at home to 67 games when they face the Baggies.

LIVERPOOL VS WEST BROM TEAM NEWS:
Liverpool could welcome back midfielders James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri into the squad for the visit of West Brom.
Thiago Alcantara is edging closer to a return after more than two months out with a knee injury but will not be fit for this game.
West Brom have Matheus Pereira back from suspension for this match, but Jake Livermore is out following his red card against Aston Villa.
Conor Townsend, Hal Robson-Kanu and Kyle Bartley remain sidelined.
PREDICTED LINE-UPS AND SCORE:
Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson; Keita, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
West Bromwich Albion: Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, O’Shea, Gibbs; Sawyers: Phillips, Pereira, Gallagher, Diangana, Grant.
Everything points towards only one result in this match, and that is a comfortable home win. Klopp’s boys will be fresher than they have been all season after an eight-day rest period between games.
Liverpool 3-0 West Bromwich Albion
The Baggies’ recent stalemate at Man City, and the fact that Allardyce was the last visiting manager to win here in the league, should give West Brom some hope.
