Torres to return versus Baggies

Torres to return versus Baggies

Torres Last weekend saw the Reds slip to a surprise last-minute defeat away to bottom of the table Tottenham, and Liverpool will want to get their title bid back on track when they face West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday at Anfield, kick-off at 17:30 hours (GMT).

The Reds hope to have last season’s top goalscorer back for the league game on Merseyside. Fernando Torres has been training well during the week as he enters the final hours of his recovery process from a hamstring injury he suffered whilst on international duty.

Come Saturday, Liverpool will be hoping to maintain their excellent recent run of results versus West Brom. The Merseysiders have won the last nine league meetings home and away scoring 30 goals while conceding only two.

The teams last met in the Premier League in the 2005/06 season with the Reds winning 1-0 at Anfield thanks to a solitary from Peter Crouch. In the return at the Hawthorns, Robbie Fowler and Djibril Cisse both scored to give Liverpool a comfortable 2-0 victory.

The Baggies have not won at Anfield in 41 years, since grabbing a 1-0 victory in the old First Division back on 22 April, 1967. The teams have met a total 114 times, with the Reds picking-up 53 wins to WBA’s 28; with a further 33 games ending in a draw. At Anfield the teams have met 57 teams with the home team collecting 31 wins to the Baggies 9. Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion have drawn 17 times in the league on Merseyside.

West Bromwich Albion were formed in 1878 by workers from Salter’s Spring Works and were one of the founding members of The Football League in 1888. The club, which has spent the majority of their existence in the top tier of English football, play their home games at The Hawthorns, a stadium they have occupied since 1900.

The Baggies have won the league title once, in 1919/20, and have lifted the FA Cup, on five occassions. Last season West Brom returned to the Premier League winning the Championship with 81 points.

West Brom currently lie second from bottom with 11 points, but a win at Anfield could see them move up to eighth. All three of WBA’s wins this season have been by a single goal. The Baggies beat West Ham 3-2 at home, Middlesbrough 1-0 at the Riverside Stadium and Fulham 1-0 at home. The two other points have com from draws with Bolton and Blackburn.

One point from Saturday’s clash would be enough see Fernando Torres’ team return to the top of the table, as Chelsea face Blackburn at Ewood Park on Sunday.
