Liverpool: Lawro Predicts 16/17 - West Brom (Away)

Liverpool: Lawro Predicts 16/17 - West Brom (Away)

Ex-Reds centre-back Mark Lawrenson previews this weekend's trip to the Hawthorns...

Throughout the 2016/17 campaign former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson is again sharing his thoughts and predictions on Premier League fixtures with the BBC.

As in previous years, we will be filtering Lawro's ramblings each week to bring you his views on games involving Liverpool.

Sunday sees J├╝rgen Klopp's men face another difficult-looking away game as they travel to West Bromwich Albion.

Here's what Lawro has to say about the game in full...

"Klopp made a late change against Bournemouth that I thought actually helped the Cherries fight back for a point.

"Then he essentially left his front six out against Stoke, but at half-time of that game thought 'woah, this isn't right.' He sent the cavalry on with the Potters ahead and it worked - the Reds won 2-1 and could have scored more in the end.

"Klopp will have to get his selection right this time but I fancy Liverpool to get a win here.

"West Brom have just started to struggle for goals again and, with no wins in four, there is a danger their season could peter out."

Lawro's prediction: 0-2



About This Former LFC Player
Mark Lawrenson joined Liverpool from Brighton & Hove Albion for a then club record £900k in the summer of 1981. The Republic of Ireland international centre-back soon struck up a formidable partnership with Alan Hansen after injury to club stalwart Phil Thompson. After 332 appearances, Lawrenson left the club in 1989 and after a season playing in the American Soccer League went on to manage Oxford United and Peterborough United. During his time at Anfield, 'Lawro' won 5 league titles, 3 League Cups, a European Cup and an FA Cup.
