West Brom take on Liverpool today as the Baggies look to continue their challenge for European qualification.

Liverpool will be hoping to win to keep the pressure on Spurs and Chelsea, and also to distance themselves from fourth-placed Manchester City.

The last time these sides met, back in October, Liverpool emerged as victors. The Reds will be hoping to do the double over West Brom today, but the Baggies will hope that home advantage will help them to defeat Jurgen Klopp’s side.

In a match that could prove key for both sides, there will, of course, be some key battles all over the pitch, the winners of which could decide the outcome of the game.

We have selected five of these that will be hard fought, and which will remain crucial throughout the match.
