Liverpool come into the game on the back of a thrilling 2-2 draw with defending champion Manchester City, a game many thought the Reds should have won.
Liverpool have been close to winning several games in recent times before letting things slip away, but captain Steven Gerrard wants his teammates to only look ahead.
Gerrard said on www.liverpoolfc.com: “It’s always easy to look at the schedule and say we should beat this team or get a win against another team.
“It’s pointless. All that we can concern ourselves with is the next game. West Brom is the priority.”
The game sees former coach Steve Clarke returning to the Anfield for the first time since leaving last summer to take up the vacant slot at West Brom.
Philippe Coutinho is on the Liverpool bench and could make his debut tonight. There is no Daniel Sturridge, as expected so Jonjo Shelvey starts ahead of Raheem Sterling and Fabio Borini.
Peter Odemwingie is not in the West Brom squad despite returning to training this week.
