Liverpool endured a frustrating goalless draw on Monday night against United. They did however manage to keep their first clean sheet of the season, despite new keeper Loris Karius looking particularly nervy all night. It’s just the sixth time in their 18 matches at Anfield under Jurgan Klopp that a visiting side has drawn a blank.
Tony Pulis would have noted how Mourinho’s men went about their business and his team certainly have the ability to frustrate their hosts. However, their record when travelling to the top clubs under him isn’t particularly flattering. They’ve conceded more than once in just 12 of their 32 away games under former Stoke manager but seven of those came in their nine away trips to top-six sides where their records reads W1-D2-L6, though they did net in five of these.
Liverpool’s new no.1 will surely be in for an aerial bombardment from this sizeable Baggies side, and in addition to Nasir Chadli bringing an extra attacking dimension to their game they certainly look a greater threat going forward. Both teams have scored in their last four matches and it looks a great shout her at Evens.
Adam Lallana looks likely to start this weekend and Liverpool’s front four look far more threatening and mobile with him in the side. Since his arrival, The Reds win ratio increases from 38% when he doesn’t start to 50% when he does, so we’ll also backing a home win and both teams to score.
