Liverpool vs. West Bromwich Albion: 5 Key Battles for Reds and Baggies

Liverpool face off against former manager Roy Hodgson for the second time since his departure and the installation of Kenny Dalglish last January. The Reds were stifled by Hogdson the last time they traveled to the Hawthorns, and will hope for a better result at the weekend.

Roy Hogdson has stated his worry over the Luis Suarez factor, the striker dazzled the traveling Reds fans with a spectacular display of skill against Stoke City on Wednesday night, securing their progress to the quarter finals of the Carling Cup.

"Every game I've seen him play this year, he's looked incredible," said Hodgson.

"Even the Norwich game, he didn't score but it was a more a miracle that he didn't score, he got so many chances for himself. He is a very good player, a very dangerous player."

Suarez has been a thorn in Stoke's side, as he has three goals against them in as many games. It was against them that he scored only minutes into his Anfield debut back in February. He is also the biggest threat to West Brom's chances, and he has looked up for it all season.

The Reds now have to turn full focus back to the league, especially as two frustrating draws against Manchester United and Norwich City have them feeling they should be four more points to the good.

West Brom have been on the up lately, but the recent injury to their leading scorer Shane Long leaves the goal scoring duties back in the hands of Peter Odemwingie. However, his feet are more than capable when put to the test.

It should be a great game between the two sides. Liverpool are on form and, if they can continue to finish like they did against Stoke, they should take the match against the Baggies.
