Semi Ajayi’s late header denied Liverpool and handed West Brom what could be a valuable point.
The Reds were dominant in the first-half and went ahead through Sadio Mane’s excellent finish.
They were unable to hammer home their advantage though despite their wealth of possession. and the Baggies came out reborn in the second-half.
West Brom binned their ultra defensive style and began to express themselves, posing a genuine threat on the counter.
Sam Allardyce’s outfit had threatened to upset the natural order and Jurgen Klopp’s frustrations were increasing as he counts the costs of injuries yet again with Joel Matip hobbling off.
Alisson denied the visitors once but couldn’t do so a second time as Ajayi, the West Brom hero at Man City, again came up with the goods from a corner ten minutes before full-time.
Here are the match ratings.
Had so little to do for so much of the game but undone with unkind bounce
Couldn’t find space to produce his usual delivery from right, still created chances
Went off with worrying groin injury which could prompt Liverpool transfer move now
Good on the ball, and stepped out of defence well to take ball into midfield
Lively from the start and looked Liverpool’s most likely source of chances
Again showed he is now the man in possession in midfield, with good display
Kept his team honest, and you could hear his shouting from backs of the stands
Some fine skills on the ball, but could rarely find the space in the middle
Looked frustrated with the lack of space and service, but some tricky skills
Usually the key in tight games like this, but for once couldn’t produce space
Stunning turn and finish for opening goal, showed his absolute class again
R Williams 6 (Matip 60)
Oxlade-Chamberlain (Jones 83)
Origi (Firmino 90)
