Liverpool know they simply have to secure a win at West Brom

JUrgen Klopp knows only wins will do for Liverpool.

There are four Premier League fixtures on Sunday and deposed champions Liverpool know only a win will do when they head to already relegated West Brom at 16:30.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have three games remaining and sit in fifth place, but with Leicester City and Chelsea, who sit third and fourth respectively, due to meet on Tuesday, the Reds will finish in the top four if they win all three of their remaining games.

A trip to a team who are already down should be a straightforward assignment for the Reds, but West Brom are unlikely to down tools at The Hawthorns.

Baggies May Still Have Some Fight

West Brom claimed a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture at Anfield in December and despite their lowly position have a fairly impressive record against the Premier League’s big-hitters.

Albion have taken four points from Chelsea this term, managed a point at champions Manchester City and held Manchester United to a draw at home.

Sam Allardyce’s men have also been strong at the Hawthorns of late with just one defeat in their last seven home games.

It is still hard to see anything other than a Liverpool win given what is at stake for the visitors but the handicap market provides some value and the 5/4 on offer for a West Brom win with a +2 goals handicap stands out.

The Baggies are 17/5 in the double chance market if you do feel they can derail the Reds’ top-four bid.

Villa Can Take Spoils at Palace

The opening game of the day is essentially a dead-rubber as Aston Villa head to Crystal Palace.

The Eagles appear to be coasting towards the summer with four defeats in their last five games, but Villa still seem to be pushing for a top-half finish and the return of Jack Grealish from injury last time out may provide a further boost.

Villa are 27/20 to win, and as both teams have scored in six of their last seven fixtures the 3/1 on a Villa win with both teams to score appeals.

Home Comforts Key for Spurs

Tottenham are still involved in the fight for European football and the visit of Wolves on Sunday afternoon looks a great opportunity to secure a three-point haul.

Spurs have won both of their home fixtures since Ryan Mason took interim charge and they seven wins in their last eight games at their London base.

Wolves have been in good form of late with three wins in their last five games but all of those successes came against teams in the bottom four, and Spurs should have the quality to come out on top here.

Spurs are 20/39 to win and Son Heung-min is a strong candidate for an anytime goal at 6/4.

The South Korean went seven games without scoring from late February to early April, but has hit some form and has four goals in his last six games.

Season Can’t End Soon Enough for Blades

Sheffield United have had a season to forget as they sit rock bottom of the table with just 17 points.

The Blades have lost 28 of their 35 games so far and could well be heading for a 29th loss when they head to Everton in the late game on Sunday.

The Goodison Park club are still fighting for European football and will be eager to end a five-game winless run on Merseyside. 

The Blades have failed to score in seven of their last eight away games and as such an Everton win to zero stands out in this clash at 10/11.
