Referee Jonathan Moss gets the game underway at Anfield...

Chris Blake: Think Liverpool will get the 3 points today but it won't be as comfortable as the odds suggest, 2-1 Liverpool with Suarez and Skrtel scoring.

Willie Maher: 2-0 Liverpool with Danny Sturridge getting them both.

Cian Hughes: I am confident that Liverpool will win today, they named a good squad and have really good players, So I think they'll win 4-1, Sturridge(2), Suarez and Gerrard!

Odds-on Liverpool remain one of the best backed teams of the day but West Brom can't be ignored at around 7/1. The Baggies have already won at Old Trafford and are looking for a third win in a row at Anfield - it was 2-0 last season and a repeat of that scoreline pays at 40/1. The Reds' Daniel Sturridge to score first is popular at 7/2.

Feel free to e-mail your thoughts or predictions to Chris.Vermeulen@teamtalkmedia.com and I'll publish as many of them before - and during - the game as possible.

For Albion, Nicolas Anelka comes back into the starting line-up for Berahino, who drops to the bench, while the rest of the side remains unchanged from their goalless draw with Stoke last weekend.

Liverpool make one change from their draw with Newcastle last weekend, with Lucas coming back into the side to replace Moses, who finds himself on the bench. Otherwise they name an unchanged starting line-up.

The Baggies have a similar record over the last five games, but are on a run of two straight draws, the latest a goalless draw with Stoke at the Britannia last weekend. They are, however, looking for their fourth successive league win over the Reds having beaten them three times in the last two seasons, two wins at the Hawthorns and one win at Anfield.

The hosts have made a good start to the season and are currently in third position and have only lost once, to Southampton, this season. Last time out they ground out a 2-2 draw against a ten-man Newcastle United, and have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five matches.

Good afternoon, I'm Chris Vermeulen and I'll be taking you through all the action as Liverpool host West Bromwich Albion at Anfield. Kick-off is scheduled for 1500 BST.
