Albion’s run of five games without a win means that their comparison record has plummeted such that only in seasons 04/05 and 05/06 did they have fewer than their current total of 10 points from 10 games.
The last four seasons have seen the Baggies win their tenth game of the season – could they carry on that run at home to league leaders Manchester City at the Hawthorns?
The Baggies travel to Anfield for the televised game on Saturday evening looking to extend their four match unbeaten run. Liverpool’s unbeaten run stretches back to August comprising eight matches in all competitions, with the draw against Manchester United on Monday bringing a run of five successive victories to an end.
Albion made it three 1-1 draws in a row against Spurs, a result that was tinged with disappointment although most Baggies fans would’ve taken a draw before the game.
The first of Albion’s tricky trio of successive games against three of the Premier League’s top four is against Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur at the Hawthorns on Saturday. The Argentine has guided Spurs to an impressive unbeaten league start culminating in an impressive victory over leaders, Manchester City, before the international break.
