Gervinho goal saves Ivory Coast in opener

A LATE goal from Gervinho earned Africa Cup of Nations favourites Ivory Coast a 2-1 victory over Togo in their opening Group D fixture.

The Elephants were struggling to live up to their pre-tournament billing before Gervinho struck with Togo's Jonathan Ayiye cancelling out Yaya Toure's early goal.

Boylesports make Ivory Coast 5-4 to win the competition and Togo were pushed out to 125-1 by Coral.

West Brom v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • West Brom have scored in their last eight home games
Expert verdict
West Brom upset Liverpool in the FA Cup at Anfield in January but they are unlikely to repeat the trick against the rampant Reds in their league clash at the Hawthorns. The Baggies sit bottom of the league and their fate looks all but sealed despite last weekend’s 1-0 win at Manchester United. The hosts should be outclassed in the end but they will be confident of at least scoring after their Old Trafford exploits. Both teams have scored in the Baggies’ last six home games and Alan Pardew’s exit has given them a lift.
