Andy Robertson admits Liverpool “got what they deserved” as they were pegged back late on by West Brom at Anfield.
The Reds failed to make their first-half dominance count as Semi Ajayi’s late header cancelled out Sadio Mane’s opener.
Liverpool did not look the same side in the second period, which in part was down to West Brom’s improved performance.
But Robertson, who was a constant menace in the first-half, bemoaned Liverpool’s lack of enthusiasm as the game went on.
And he felt individual errors crept into every single player’s game as they failed to increase their lead at the top of the table.
He told Sky Sports: “Once you start going slack you get what you deserve. They came here with a game plan, they were happy with one-nil at half-time.
“When you come up against a Sam Allardyce team they want to stay in it as long as they can and take the once chance they get. And they done that.
“They got what they deserved and we got what we deserved. First half was good, we dominated the ball, counter press, counter attacks, really good, created a lot of chances.
“Then second half it was as if we didn’t want to do it again. Tried different things which wasn’t working. We all went slack.
“I think every one of us made a mistake in the second half which can’t happen. It’s something we’ve got to learn from.
“Credit to West Brom for the way they played in second half.”
The stalemate was the first time Liverpool have dropped points at Anfield this season.
They are in the midst of a lengthy unbeaten run that dates back to 2017 when a Sam Allardyce Crystal Palace won 2-1.
West Brom’s manager has again masterminded a performance as he remain unbeaten in his last four visits to Liverpool with a fourth different team.
