Evans expects Liverpool test

20 October 2016

Suspended centre-back gives his view on Anfield encounter

JONNY Evans thinks Liverpool will provide Albion with a stern test when the two sides meet at Anfield on Saturday (ko 5.30pm).

And the Baggies defender believes Jurgen Klopp's side will be similar to Tottenham in the way they approach the game.

"Liverpool are a good side, especially going forward.

"I think they're like Tottenham in that respect so the lads got some good experience last weekend.

"They like to press from the front and take control of games.

"It will be a tough test."

Evans will have to watch from the sidelines after he picked up his fifth booking of the season against Spurs last weekend.

But the Northern Ireland international says his teammates will be taking confidence from the 2-2 draw at Anfield last year.

"I'm not used to picking up yellow cards and I've got five already!

"I'll miss the game but everyone will remember the result and the performance last year.

"It's always a hard place to go with the atmosphere they create, but let's hope we can get another positive result."
