Liverpool – West Bromwich (FA Cup)

Liverpool and West Bromwich are in action on Saturday, at Anfield Road, in a match for the FA Cup round of 32. Liverpool’s 18-match unbeaten run came to an end on Monday night, after Jurgen Klopp’s side slipped to a shock 1-0 defeat at the hands of Swansea City. West Bromwich, on their turn, seems to be getting in better form and have only lost one of their last six matches, and are unbeaten in their last three.

Liverpool reached this FA Cup stage after beating Everton in the previous round. This is a competition that Liverpool has already won 7 times in their history, the last time was in 2005/06, and since then they only came close to winning it again in 2011/12, where they reached the final, and in 2014/15, where they reached the semi-finals. The loss on Monday night against Swansea ended the Reds 18-match unbeaten run, in all competitions.

Still, the team are undefeated at Anfield Road this season in all competitions, national and european, and have won all their last four games here, scoring 13 goals and conceding 5 in the process. Jurgen Klopp should enter here with his usual tactical system, favoring ball possession and the organized attacks, especially down the wings, with the team also standing out by being very strong in counter-attacks and in creating chances through individual skill. Salah stands out for being the Premier League top scorer, with 21 goals scored in the competition.

In their last 5 official matches, Liverpool has a record of 4 victories and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City. This result was followed by a 1-2 victory over Burnley, a 2-1 victory against Everton, for the FA Cup, a 4-3 victory over Manchester City, and in their last match, a 1-0 defeat against Swansea City. Lallana, Klavan. Milner, Clyne and Bogdan are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Mignolet – Alexander-Arnold, Dijk, Klavan and Robertson – Henderson, Milner and Lallana – Salah, Solanke and Mané.

facupWest Bromwich, on their turn, reached this FA Cup stage after beating Exeter City. The Baggies have also won this competition 5 times in their history, although the last one was in 1967/68, and in the last 18 years the farthest the team has reached was the 2007/08 semi-finals.

After a very poor start to the season, going through a total of 21 consecutive games, in all competitions, without winning a single match, the team seems to be recovering and arrives here with two victories in the last three games, with the other match ending in a tie against Everton. The Baggies have won only 1 of their last 12 games as visitors, losing 7 of them. The team have already held Liverpool to a draw at Anfield this season, and will try to do the same here.

In their last 5 official matches, West Bromwich has a record of 2 victories, 2 draws and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 1-1 draw at home against Arsenal. This result was followed by a 2-1 defeat against West Ham, a 0-2 victory against Exeter City, for the FA Cup, a 2-0 victory over Brighton, and in their last match, a 1-1 draw away to Everton. James Morrison and Chadli are out, both due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Foster – Nyom, McAuley, Hegazi and Gibbs – Livermore, Krychowiak, McClean and Brunt – Rodríguez and Robson-Kanu.

Liverpool have won 3 of their last 8 direct confrontations, tying the remaining 5.
