Confirmed: West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool line-ups

Here is how West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool will line up for this afternoon’s clash:

West Bromwich Albion welcome Liverpool to The Hawthorns this afternoon with the Reds still pushing for a top-four finish and the Baggies hoping to climb further up the table.

Liverpool had a weekend to forget when they lost 2-1 to Aston Villa in the FA Cup semi-final, but they have to put that behind them as they look to close the gap between them and fourth-placed Manchester City.

West Brom are well clear of the drop-zone but manager Tony Pulis will want them to get a few more points on the board to ensure a calm end to the campaign.

Liverpool have a poor recent record away to West Brom, winning on just one of their last four visits.

That said, Liverpool have a superb record since the turn of the year and they will want that to continue this afternoon, against a side that will take hope from Pulis’s brilliant individual home record against today’s opponents.
