Lukaku wary of Liverpool backlash
By Football News
West Bromwich Albion striker Romelu Lukaku has warned his team-mates to prepare for a Liverpool backlash on Wednesday.
It is just a month since Brendan Rodgers' side were humbled 3-0 by West Brom at the Hawthorns on the opening day of the English Premier League season.
"To beat them in the league was a big achievement for us but we know Liverpool will want revenge," Lukaku told The Independent ahead of the League Cup clash between the teams.
"We have to be ready. It's going well for us now and we just have to keep both our feet on the ground.
"If we want to keep our momentum going, we want to win this game and it would also mean we could go with a clear mind to the derby at Aston Villa (on Sunday)."
Competition for places up front is fierce at the Hawthorns and signing Markus Rosenberg is hoping to start against Liverpool and stake a claim for a permanent place in the starting 11.
"It would be great to start as I played 15 minutes on Saturday and hopefully I will get a chance to start against Liverpool," Rosenberg told the club's website.
"I feel good in training but training is one thing and playing is another. I need more game time."
