Predicted Reds XI for Premier League clash v West Brom

Ben Mee of Burnley tackles Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Burnley at Anfield

Hot off the heels of the draw with Everton on Sunday, Liverpool square up with struggling West Bromwich Albion at Anfield and even though he got some heat for making a number of changes in the Derby, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will nearly certainly be forced to switch things up tomorrow - though it remains unlikely that Adam Lallana will be risked against the Baggies.

"He's not ready [for West Brom], that's for sure", Klopp said."We've sent him to different doctors just to be sure".

Lallana is expected to be back sooner than centre back Joel Matip, who is recovering from a thigh problem.

"We've seen it a few times this season at Anfield - people know the attacking threats we have and tend to sit off a bit because we are so quick on the counter".

Ther Reds boss also highlighted West Brom's physicality and says "we know what we can expect".

West Brom are 17th after being beaten by fellow strugglers Swansea in their last match, while third-placed Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 10 games in all competitions.

He has already made one aborted comeback, coming on as a Liverpool substitute for the final minute of the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on November 25, but was forced to take a step back when Klopp reported that the 29-year-old had "tightness" in a muscle. He trains completely normal.

"It's a game that you have to look forward to as players because it is a venue and stadium you dream of playing at when you're growing up", Pardew said.

J├╝rgen Klopp has admitted that Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno could be sidelined for up to six weeks with his current ankle injury. We should not need him for tomorrow, but we need to see how we can bring him into match fitness. I am not here to judge, but you only can with a lot more time than Alan has had so far.

They too have a new recently appointed manager, like Everton, and it can be a hard game to predict against sides like that, with players out to impress the new man in charge.
