Liverpool are 10/11 favourites at Betfred to win this, but they have failed to win on any of their previous four league visits to the Hawthorns – drawing the last three.

West Brom are available at a best price of 18/5 with Betfair, but another draw appeals more at the stand-out price of 11/4 offered by Bet365.

No team has scored more league goals from corners than the Baggies (14) so far this season, and with the visitors vulnerable when defending set-pieces we suggest backing both of their centre-backs to score a goal at any time in the game.

The evergreen Gareth McAuley has scored 6 league goals already this season and is a huge looking 10/1 with Paddy Power to score, while Craig Dawson scored twice here against Arsenal recently and he is available at 14/1 with the same bookmaker.

Philippe Coutinho has scored in each of Liverpool’s last three league games – and he can be backed each-way at 6/1 with Bet365 with 1/3 odds for the ‘place’, if he scores.

Both teams have scored in Liverpool’s last 7 league games and that’s 5/6 at Betfair.

Two of those last three draws here finished 1-1 and the other 0-0, so back 1-1 at the 13/2 with Bet365, who refund losing Correct Score bets on matches that finish 0-0.

But with the carrot of a Top 4 Champions League spot dangling tantalisingly in front of their noses, we’ll also suggest a saver on the 2-1 Liverpool victory at odds of 8/1.

If Liverpool do win that earlier kick-off on Sunday then Manchester United will need to beat Chelsea to cling onto any realistic hopes of a top 4 finish this season.

But that is easier said than done against a side closing in on the Premier League title and also needing a win to maintain the gap between themselves and Tottenham.

Chelsea won the reverse fixture 4-0 back in October and while Jose Mourinho’s side are unbeaten since that thrashing, they have drawn too many matches (W11, D10).

Indeed, United have drawn 9 of 16 home games this season (W6, L1), while Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 12 games in all competitions against Man United (W7, D5).

Thus, while bookmakers are having trouble splitting the two sides on Sunday, with most offering both at 7/4 or 9/5, we have to favour the visitors and suggest backing them in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market at a best price of 19/20 with Betfair.

Both teams have scored in Chelsea’s last 9 league games and that’s also at 19/20.

Chelsea have won six of their last eight league games either 2-1 or 3-1 – so we also suggest backing both of those scorelines at best odds of 11/1 and 28/1 respectively.

Eden Hazard has scored three goals in Chelsea’s last two games and, also scored in that game at Stamford Bridge earlier this season – he’s 13/2 at Bet365 to score first.

Gary Cahill also scored in that game – one of four league goals for the centre-back this season and he’s a stand-out 15/1 with Unibet in the Anytime Goalscorer market.
