West Brom vs Liverpool Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips (16/5/21)

West Brom have nothing to play for but pride this weekend but they do have a decent recent record against their guests from Merseyside. Liverpool remain in the hunt for the Champions League places but can't afford to drop any points on Sunday against a West Brom side they have failed to beat on the last four occasions.

West Brom vs Liverpool: Our Best Predictions

Unbiased tips

All odds are subject to change but the prices shown are correct on the date of publication. Please check with your bookmakers before placing any bets. 

Liverpool & BTTS

Liverpool have far more motivation for the 3pts this weekend than their hosts, as Klopp's men sit 4pts behind 4th placed Chelsea with a game in hand. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last six matches, picking up three wins and three draws, and both teams have scored in four of those fixtures. West Brom are without a win in their last four outings and both teams have scored in four of their last six matches.

3-1 Liverpool

Liverpool head into this game on the back of a 4-2 win over arch-rivals Man Utd and if that doesn't give their players a huge confidence boost, then nothing will. West Brom lost their last game 3-1 and also conceded exactly three goals against Leicester City recently, so we're backing Liverpool to secure a 3-1 win of their own this Sunday.

Roberto Firmino to Score

Roberto Firmino has hardly set the Premier League alight this season having only chipped in with 8 league goals so far, the same total as Christian Benteke at Crystal Palace. However, the Brazilian international ended his goal drought in the perfect manner, scoring twice against Man Utd last time out. We're expecting the Brazilian striker to go on a mini goalscoring run between now and the end of the season, which could save his Liverpool career.

Key Stats and Markets for West Brom vs Liverpool

Can relegated West Brom maintain their unbeaten run against Liverpool?

West Brom suffered a 3-1 defeat away at Arsenal last time out and while they have already had their relegation back to the Championship confirmed, the Baggies could still finish above Fulham and earn some extra prize money. However, with the hosts going four games without a win, you wouldn't be betting on West Brom beating Liverpool on Sunday, despite the recent head-to-head record between the two clubs. West Brom are unbeaten in their last four games against the Merseysiders, picking up one FA Cup win and three draws in the Premier League. The Baggies look set to be without the injured Snodgrass and Ivanovic this weekend but Maitland-Niles does return to the squad.

Liverpool will be without Henderson, Matip, Gomez, Kabak and van Dijk for Sunday's trip to West Brom, while there remain doubts over the fitness of Milner, Keita and Davies. Even without all of those players available, Liverpool still managed to hammer Man Utd 4-2 in their own backyard on Thursday night. The Reds have a game in hand on Chelsea and could even be above the Blues by the time next weekend arrives, providing they beat both West Brom and Burnley.
