Salah Chasing Greatness
Mo Salah has scored nine times in his last eight league games. The Egyptian has 13 goals in the top flight this season.
His next will see him become the first player to score 14 times for the club in the top flight since Luis Suarez in 2013/14.
Should he score this evening only two players in the club’s history will have reached 20 goals in a season quicker than Salah in terms of date.
In 1986, Ian Rush netted his 20th goal on November 8 while Roger Hunt reached the landmark in 1961 on November 25.
Odds in Liverpool’s Favour
In that sequence they have won five and drawn five in the league.
Since suffering defeat at Tottenham in October the Reds have not lost in 10 league and cup matches.
West Brom have lost 18 of their last 23 visits in the league.
They have gone 14 league games without a victory since winning their opening two fixtures of the campaign.
Pardew’s Record Against the Reds

The Baggies have kept two clean sheets in their last 26 Premier League games away from home.
Home and away they have prevented the opposition from scoring in just one of their last 12 games in league and cup.
However, they have conceded just once in each of last five league games on the road.
They have conceded 10 goals in their last four Anfield visits.
Contribution From the Bench
