Liverpool: Manager, Brendan Rodgers
Liverpool’s recent games against Arsenal and Man City have resulted in drawn matches with Liverpool very unfortunate not to have collected three points in each game. Arsenal and Man City are top teams playing a superior brand of football so Liverpool must be “thereabouts.”
It appears Liverpool’s immediate aim would be to gain fourth spot on the English Premier League table and with Brendan Rodgers performing at his peak this should be a realistic and achievable goal.
Daniel Sturridge has fired four goals in six appearances since his move to Anfield from Chelsea in early January – a classy performance indeed. Midfielder Joe Allen continues to play well below his best, however through various media outlets he has expressed his determination to regain his early form which was top form following his move to Liverpool from Swansea. It seems he is willing to do whatever it takes to get off the bench where he has been for the last three EPL games. He is also quoted in the media as expressing this appreciation to the club for their continued support.
Rumours abound relating to Hatem Ben Afra and his possible relocation to Liverpool at the end of the season with Brendan Rodgers claiming he “will be able to get the best” out of Ben Afra.
Liverpool’s remaining games are not all against top teams - Liverpool will encounter Tottenham, Chelsea and Everton. All at home.
Will history re-write itself in 2013 and duplicate the amazing comeback of 2005?
West Brom: Manager, Steve Clarke
Steve Clarke will be calling on his players to return to their winning ways and with the return of some top players from international duty that might just be a possibility. Clarke finds himself frustrated with not getting the most out of his team finding himself seemingly locked into “a bad run.”
West Brom as a team and the players themselves must both physically and psychologically push themselves to the limit.
There is little preparation time for this game so West Brom will need to find all of the grit and determination they can muster if they are to win on the day.
