Arsenal legend Paul Merson is backing Jurgen Klopp's side to seal a win over the Baggies when they clash at Anfield on Sunday. Liverpool, who sit in 8th position on the Premier League table, host 13th placed West Brom and Merson says the Merseysiders find it difficult to break teams down at times, insisting they can't win the league title. "Surely Liverpool can't win the title? On Sunday at Newcastle they were atrocious," he told Sky Sports. "Jurgen Klopp left Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge out against Newcastle, and stuck Lucas and Joe Allen in midfield. "Benteke was strolling around looking like he was still playing for Villa. "I can't see them winning the title, but I'll go for them to win this one narrowly. I think they find it hard to break down teams at home. "West Brom have finally started looking like a Tony Pulis team in recent weeks, nearly a year after he took over.
"It isn't brilliant to watch but Pulis will keep them in the league, and you really have to stay in the top flight this year. "I dread to think what's going to happen in January, because people can't stick, they have to twist. With the amount of money coming in next year, you have to be playing in the Premier League."
