Players to Watch

Luis Suarez, Liverpool, F

Reds striker Luis Suarez enters Saturday's match with 18 goals, just one shy of Manchester United's Robin van Persie for the Premier League scoring lead. 

Suarez has scored three goals in his last two outings with Liverpool, including one in the club's last Premier League match, a 5-0 win over Swansea City. If you aren't familiar with him or haven't seen him play, I assure you the Uruguayan star is among the most electrifying strikers in the world, and he can score in a variety of ways.

He has 25 goals and nine assists in 38 total appearances for Liverpool in 2012-13.

Veteran midfielder Jean Beausejour has yet to score for Wigan in Premier League play this season, but nonetheless he leads the club with six assists this season.

A talented player in midfield for Roberto Martinez's Latics, Beausejour is an unselfish playmaker with the ball at his feet. He's starred for the Chilean national team since 2004.

Keep an eye out for Beausejour on Saturday, as he's sure to bring a steady and calming presence to Wigan's lineup. The Latics are in serious danger of being bounced from the Premier League, but a strong outing from Beausejour and a win at home could change all of that.

All it takes is one quick peek at the Premier League table to know who the favorite is in this showdown. Wigan has won just two of 13 EPL home matches this season, allowing two goals per game at DW Stadium in 2012-13. 

On the other side, Liverpool is scoring nearly two goals per match on the road in Premier League play.

Saturday's matchup looks to be a terrible one for Wigan, as Liverpool is far and away the better club at the moment. Look for the Reds to come away with three pivotal points this weekend as they attempt to chase down West Brom and Everton.

Wigan 1, Liverpool 3
