HT: So will West Brom hold onto their lead or will Liverpool come back in this match? Join us again for the second-half.
HT: West Brom will have to be at their best defensively in the second-half as they won’t want to let a two-goal margin slip. Liverpool have to make the most of their chances in the second-half themselves as it won’t be easy to get the better of the West Brom defence. They know they cannot afford to concede another goal as it could be game over.
