Preview: West Bromwich Albion vs. Liverpool

Sports Mole previews the Premier League clash between West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool.

West Bromwich Albion head coach Pepe Mel will be hoping to get his first win in charge of the club when they host Liverpool on Sunday.

Mel witnessed his team throw away a 2-0 advantage to lose 4-3 against Aston Villa in midweek to ensure that they remain just three points above the relegation zone.

Defender Gareth McAuley could be recalled to the starting lineup, but Nicolas Anelka is out with a knee injury.

Liverpool have won five of their last six games, and they travel to The Hawthorns with strike duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge continuing to maintain their impressive form.

The pair netted three of Liverpool's four goals against Merseyside rivals Everton on Tuesday, and that result could see Brendan Rodgers retain the same XI for their trip to the West Midlands.
