This is an early outlook on the Premier League game between West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool, scheduled to take place on Sunday 16 May at The Hawthorns.
West Bromwich Albion
The Baggies could be relegated before this very game even start. Currently in 19th spot with 26 points from 34 games, West Brom need 10 points from the 4 remaining games to catch up with Newcastle United just outside the drop zone (given the Magpies don't collect a single point in the 4 remaining games).
West Brom travel to the Emirates Stadium in London to face Arsenal on Sunday 9 May and if they lose that game (or if Newcastle beat Leicester City on Friday 7) the relegation is a fact.
So, West Brom could be relegated and shattered when they face Liverpool on 16 May. Or they could desperately need a win to keep the hopes of survival alive, which could see a rather open game unfold.
