Match Preview

Hodgson content with Long call-up West Brom will be without striker Shane Long when they host Liverpool on Saturday. The Republic of Ireland international will be sidelined for six weeks with the knee injury suffered during last weekend's clash with Aston Villa, but the former Reading man has been named in the Republic of Ireland`s Euro 2012 play-off squad to face Estonia in a fortnight. Baggies manager Roy Hodgson diffused a potential club versus country row by insisting his inclusion in the Irish national squad is "the correct decision". Hodgson has no problem with the call-up, although he believes it may be "optimistic". He said: "The prognosis from the doctors and medical experts is that Shane will be out for six weeks. "But I quite understand why an important player like Shane is included in the squad because there is nothing to stop Giovanni Trapattoni (Republic of Ireland manager) being optimistic. "There have been lots of cases in the past where people have been diagnosed with an injury which will take longer than it actually takes. "So no-one would be happier than ourselves if Shane Long recovers in two weeks and can play for Ireland in these important qualifiers. "For me, his selection is fine. I just hope they won't be too disappointed if the doctors prognosis turns out to be the correct one. It might turn out to be optimistic." Somen Tchoyi and Simon Cox will be vying to partner Peter Odemwingie up front. Midfielders Paul Scharner and Graham Dorrans (both knee) and winger Jerome Thomas (foot) are expected to be fit. Luis Suarez is an injury doubt for Liverpool, who will be facing former manager Hodgson, after coming off late on in the victory over Stoke in midweek with an ankle problem. Reds manager Kenny Dalglish made eight changes for the tie at the Britannia Stadium and the likes of Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson are set to return to the first XI. The England pair have both recently recovered from injuries but Dalglish confirmed he left them out in midweek by choice. "He (Suarez) has had a bit of treatment," Dalglish said. "He has had a tough time recently, so we'll see how he is for tomorrow. "It was just part of the course of sensibility with Steven and Glen on Wednesday. "There was nothing wrong with them - they could both have played if they had to. It was our choice." Meanwhile, Dalglish has branded Suarez a "great ambassador" for the club in the midst of accusations of diving by Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and racism by their defender Patrice Evra following the Red Devils' 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw at Anfield on October 15. "He has been fantastic and the great thing about him is that he is very unassuming as well," Dalglish said. "Everybody can see what he can do on the pitch, but he has got no edge to him. He doesn't think he is better than anyone else. "He is a great ambassador for the football club. For us, as well as his football, the other things he brings to the club are very important as well. "He is just a fantastic person as well as a fantastic footballer. "As I have said before, he has only been here since January and already we are running out of compliments to pay him, which I suppose is a huge compliment in itself."

Match Report

Carroll and Suarez steal the show in Reds' win Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez showed more signs of forging a potent strike partnership as Liverpool strolled to a 2-0 victory over West Brom - and former Reds manager Roy Hodgson - at the Hawthorns. A Charlie Adam penalty and Carroll's third goal of the campaign confirmed Liverpool's superiority as they climbed into fifth spot in the Barclays Premier League. But it was the way that Carroll and Suarez gelled which would have given the most satisfaction to Reds boss Kenny Dalglish. Carroll is starting to live up to his #35million price tag while Suarez gave his usual irresistible performance as the pair tormented the Baggies rearguard. With Adam and Lucas Leiva running the show in the centre of the park and Daniel Agger impressive in defence, Liverpool had few problems in chalking up a third away league win of the campaign. It ended the Baggies run of 11 points from the last six games but more accomplished sides will find it hard to deal with Carroll and Suarez in this form. Liverpool, without the injured Steven Gerrard (ankle) and Jamie Carragher (calf), were the first to settle and a long ball from Jose Enrique was seized on by Suarez but his control let him down. After eight minutes Adam put Liverpool ahead from the penalty spot. Suarez was bundled into by Jerome Thomas and referee Lee Mason pointed to the spot after his assistant Gary Beswick flagged for a foul. Albion's players were incensed by the decision but up stepped Adam to send Ben Foster the wrong way from the spot for his second goal of the campaign. Liverpool had appeals for a second penalty rejected when Carroll's header from Suarez's cross struck the hand of Andy Reid. Jonas Olsson became the first player to be yellow carded after 35 minutes for a reckless challenge on Carroll. Suarez had a chance to increase Liverpool's lead after 35 minutes when Martin Skrtel squared a deep Adam corner back across the box. But the Uruguayan shot wide from eight yards out. Then after 45 minutes Carroll made it 2-0. Lucas' fine pass picked out Suarez and he released Carroll who clipped wide of the advancing Foster for his fifth goal in 21 games for Liverpool. Liverpool began the second half on the offensive and Henderson failed to make proper contact on his shot after Carroll found him in space. Albion came close for the first time after 47 minutes when Somen Tchoyi was inches wide with his low cross shot. But Liverpool were quickly back in command and Carroll should have done better when an Adam shot ballooned up into his path. Suarez was proving hard to contain and he shot over from a narrow angle. A long raking pass from Adam released Suarez who cut inside the box but he was eventually crowded out and Foster collected. Albion were forced into a change with Scharner picking up a knee injury and replaced by James Morrison. Jose Enrique galloped forward to force Foster to finger-tip his shot over the bar and then the keeper blocked a Carroll volley after more good play by Suarez. Carroll found himself in acres of space on the edge of the box but shot wide when Jordan Henderson was unmarked. With nine minutes left, Dalglish made his first substitution with Suarez making way for Craig Bellamy - his 250th Premier League appearance. Olsson headed wide from a Chris Brunt corner but it was too little, too late from the Baggies and in injury time the woodwork denied Downing his first Liverpool goal.
