Curtis Jones to start? How Liverpool could line up against West Brom

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side will need all three points against West Brom if they have any hope of finishing in the top four

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be demanding all three points from his side when they visit West Brom on Sunday afternoon.

The former English champions are still in pursuit of a top four finish before the end of the season and Klopp’s team will know anything but a win could rule out Champions League football for next season.

In defence Klopp will take encouragement from strong defensive performances against Manchester United. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Nathaniel Phillips all stood out for Liverpool and should be joined alongside Rhys Williams in a traditional back four.

In midfield the Liverpool manager may be tempted to give Curtis Jones a start but is likely to stick with his tried and tested method of a midfield trio of Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Gini Wijnaldum.

Klopp will have a big decision to make up front, where a disgruntled and out-of-form Sadio Mane may demand a start on the left, instead of Diogo Jota. If Klopp indulges his player he’ll start alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
