Liverpool will look to cement their position in the top four when they take on West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon.

Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet produced an excellent performance against Stoke last weekend with the Belgian international making at least two key saves to help secure a vital three points so he’s certain to keep his place this weekend.

Defence: Klopp is expected to mix things up after playing an experimental side last week so I think we’ll see the German revert to his favoured back four of Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and James Milner with Ragnar Klavan and Trent Alexandre Arnold dropping out.

Midfield: Jordan Henderson is still at least another week away from returning to action so Klopp could recall Lucas Leiva in the holding role in front of the defence against West Brom.

With Adam Lallana still recovering from a thigh injury I think we’ll see Klopp stick with Emre Can and Gini Wijnaldum in midfield.

Attack: Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino came off the bench to be the match-winners against Stoke and the Brazilian duo are set to get recalls to the starting eleven at the Hawthorns.

Coutinho was rushed back from illness last weekend while Firmino wasn’t risked from the start because of fatigue but I expect we’ll see them both lining-up against the Baggies on Sunday.

Ben Woodburn is likely to make way while Daniel Sturridge is pushing for a recall but I think Divock Origi may get the nod up front once again.

Here is how we think Liverpool will line up:
