While Albion may be 25-1 rank outsiders for the visit to Anfield on Sunday, they have actually only been beaten once in their last four visits and knocked Klopp’s side out of the FA Cup in their last match on the red side of Stanley Park.
That 3-2 win in January 2018, only of only three victories in all competitions during Alan Pardew’s tenure at the Hawthorns, was dominated by the fledgling VAR system that we have all come to “love” but Albion emerged victorious in spite of a disallowed goal and a penalty decision given by the man in Stockley Park.
Chelsea are the only team to win a domestic match at Anfield since then, winning a League Cup tie in September 2018, and the last team to win at Anfield in the Premier League was Crystal Palace in April 2017 under current Baggies boss, Sam Allardyce.
Albion have actually won three of their last seven games at Anfield, but the first of those wins, a 1-0 victory on 22nd April 2012 thanks to Peter Odemwingie’s goal (pictured), ended an exactly 45 year wait for a league win at Liverpool since Jeff Astle’s winner on 22nd April 1967.
The Baggies’ biggest win at Anfield came in October 1951 when goals from Reg Ryan, George Lee, Frank Griffin (2) and Ronnie Allen gave the visitors a 5-2 victory, while Liverpool’s record victory over Albion at home is 5-0, a feat they achieved in 1900 and 1935.
