West Bromwich Albion are 16th in the Premier League with 2 points, and are two places above the relegation zone, which they will be hoping not to be in come the end of the season.
With a team featuring players like Claudio Yacob, Brown Ideye and Graham Dorrans, all of them being physically and technically good players, West Brom should be looking to create an upset at the Hawthorns this Saturday, but will face a lot of opposition from Mario Balotelli, Lazar Markovic and Steven Gerrard, who will all be looking to put Liverpool ahead in the scoresheet and the table.

Liverpool's new signing Chris Brunt starts his first Liverpool game on the bench against his old club, who he will be anxious to try and get a win against today. There is rumoured to be a good feeling about the meeting, and no bad blood is held between Brunt and Irvine.
