Liverpool took an all-important lead against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday, with Roberto Firmino breaking the deadlock for the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp’s men sit in fourth place ahead of kick off, but a win would move them nine points clear of fifth-placed Everton, and up to third ahead of Manchester City having played a game more.
A trip to West Brom can be a tricky encounter, but Roberto Firmino scored on the stroke of half-time at a crucial point in the game to give Liverpool a huge boost.
