After fielding a full-blooded team against Chelsea in the midweek at Anfield, Liverpool will travel to West Bromwich Albion in their last fixture of this Premier League season.

Although the aforementioned duo is starting its life in Liverpool, there could be one player in the Liverpool lineup on Sunday that might be playing his last game in Liverpool colors.
Despite costing the Reds a hefty 32.5 Million Pounds last summer, Benteke has failed to hold down a permanent spot under Jurgen Klopp.

One major decision that Klopp might have to take in regard to this fixture would be the inclusion of Joe Allen.
Liverpool weren’t at their best in the absence of the Welshman against Chelsea and the Liverpool supporters would urge Klopp to keep him in his plans for their team’s trip to Basel.

Apart from Simon Mignolet, who will be deputizing for Liverpool between the sticks, it is expected that the Liverpool back four would include names of Conor Randall and Brad Smith on the full back spots.
