West Bromwich Albion vs Liverpool – Match Preview, Tactics And Manager’s words

Published

on

Liverpool are gearing up for their big final against Sevilla and the entire focus is on Thursday. However before that they face West Bromwich Albion in their final game of the season. Klopp clearly mentioned the priorities of his side but he would be more than happy if his side manages to get all three points. The Reds have not been at their best in their recent away games and Klopp also has to rotate and rest his key players before the big game.

Build-up

West Bromwich Albion have not had a good run of form. In their last five games they have not managed a single win which are signs of worry for the team. Their last home win was against Manchester United in March and since then Hawthorns is waiting for a win. Liverpool on the other hand have had a mix run of form lately with two wins from their last five games. Also the Reds were woeful in their last away game at Swansea and they will have to put that behind and try and get three points from their last game if the season.

Tactics

Liverpool will have their entire attention and focus on the mid week final and will play their B team for this one. In the home games the B team has played well, but not on the road. The focus here should be to get an early goal as West Brom have not been good in coming back from a goal down. The opponents have struggled this season in terms of the number of goals scored and Liverpool should restrict them form scoring.

During the award function Klopp was seen making a light joke on the Albion game by saying that it’s not a major concern for his team but he did make some serious comments in his conference. This is what the manager had to say. “We had great atmospheres, maybe the greatest in the world in this moment. It’s been more difficult to enjoy Liverpool football last few years. This team has given those moments back. That’s nice, that’s one of the signs we spoke about. We can use that.”

His counterpart on the other hand is pretty satisfied with his team’s performance this season and this is what he had to say. “I’m absolutely delighted with the way we’ve done it this season because we’re still in the Premier League.You look at Newcastle, you look at Aston Villa and Norwich, and you look at the traditions of those clubs.”
