STAT PACK: Key facts ahead of Liverpool test

14 April 2017

Reds clash under the spotlight


HEAD-TO-HEAD

The last three meetings at The Hawthorns have all ended in draws.

Albion and Liverpool have come up against one another 21 times in the Premier League. The Reds have had the upper hand winning 13 games, with Albion recording four victories. The remaining four fixtures have all ended in draws.

Both teams have scored in six of the last seven meetings.

The Baggies put five unanswered goals past the Reds the first time they faced each other back in September, 1894. 

Since achieving a Premier League double over Liverpool in 2012/13, Albion have not won any of their following seven matches against the Reds (D4 L3).


ALBION

The Baggies will be looking for their first Hawthorns victory over Liverpool since August 2012. Goals from Zoltan Gera, Peter Odemwingie and Romelu Lukaku made it an opening day to remember.

Albion are unbeaten in their last four games against Liverpool at The Hawthorns in the Premier League.

A victory for Tony Pulis’ men would take them to 47 points from 33 games. Albion would then need just three more points from their remaining five matches to record their highest points tally in the Premier League.

The Baggies have scored the most goals from corners in the Premier League this season with 14.

Tony Pulis has never lost a home fixture in the Premier League against Liverpool.


LIVERPOOL

Brazil international Philippe Coutinho has scored in three successive Premier League appearances and can net in four in a row for the first time. 

80% of Liverpool’s defeats have come away from home. They did, however, come back from a goal down to beat Stoke City 2-1 at the bet365 Stadium last weekend.

The Reds have conceded more goals from corners than any other team in the top six of the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are the highest scorers in the Premier League. Liverpool have found the back of the net 68 times in 2016/17, which is three goals more than leaders Chelsea.

Liverpool have made more passes than any other side in the Premier League so far this season. They’ve completed 18,616 – 179 more than Manchester City in second.
