Defending champions Liverpool will be aiming to stretch their lead at the top as Sam Allardyce’s West Brom head to Anfield.

The Reds squad is still blighted by injuries as 2020 comes to an end with Diogo Jota, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez all out for the foreseeable.

Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara is back in training following a knee injury with Klopp confident he should see some action in this one.

As for The Baggies, life back in the West Midlands started with defeat for Allardyce as they were brushed off by Aston Villa last time out.

Skipper Jake Livermore begins a three-match ban after being sent off in that one with Matheus Pereira back in contention following his own time on the naughty step.

Add with Big Sam looking to get his new squad right back to basics in the weeks to come, veteran war horse Branislav Ivanovic could also come back in.

And it’s all set to go at Anfield with a 4.30pm Kick Off.
