West Bromwich – Liverpool
West Bromwich are 99 percent going to get relegated this season, being 20th in the standings with 24 points. In the previous round they shocked everyone by beating Manchester United at the Old Trafford. Nobody expected to see such a result between these two sides, but it happened.
But anyway, this win won’t be enough for West Bromwich to save themselves. They missed too many opportunities to win points and change their destinity. Mathematically they are still not in the Championship, but this will probably happen pretty soon.
Right now W.B.A. have a record of 4 wins, 12 draws and 18 defeats. In their last five games they lost three times, made one draw and won once. Now they will have another difficult test against Liverpool.
Liverpool are currently third in the Premier League with 70, being on 4 points behind the 2nd Manchester United. They have a record of 20 wins, 10 draws and 4 losses since the beginning of the season. Currently they are 1/2-finalists in the Champions League, but their efforts in the Premier League were not enough to win the title.
In their last five games Liverpool won three times, made one draw and suffered one defeat against Manchester United at the Old Trafford. Liverpool are arguably one of the best English teams at the moment, but in many ways this season in the Premier League was not as successful for them as they hoped for. Because they wanted the title.
Now it’d be curious to see if West Bromwich can repeat their performance from the Old Trafford against Liverpool. For sure Liverpool will have it in mind to be careful after what happened to United. Let’s see!
