The Premier League champions were deservedly pegged back by a well-drilled Baggies side on Sunday.
There were no surprises in Sam Allardyce‘s set-up, with his side happy to concede possession and dropping into a low block which often resembled a 6-4-0 formation.
That was to be Liverpool’s sole shot on target in the first half despite boasting over 80 per cent possession.
Karlan Grant had a golden opportunity to level the scores in the second half, getting the better of second-half substitute Rhys Williams – on for the injured Joel Matip – before Semi Ajayi headed home seven minutes from time.
It was a goal which looked to be coming since the break, the Baggies much improved after Allardyce’s half-time team talk, and earns the new manager his first point since being appointed.
95min: That’s your lot! A thoroughly deserved point for West Brom.
91min: There will be four minutes added on. Ivanovic comes on to shore up the Baggies defence.
90min: Johnson denies Firmino in the final minute!
83min: It’s been coming since half-time and Ajayi heads home the equaliser!
78min: Charlie Austin is on for Grant. A roll of the dice by Alladyce.
72min: Chance! Grant runs through against Williams and has the better of him… but cannot beat Alisson! That was a chance.
70min: Firmino tries one of the flicks for Jones to run on to but the latter’s touch is too strong. Liverpool growing slightly frustrated here, but they have the lead.
66min: Another cross from Robertson but Salah gets underneath it and it’s well wide. This game isn’t won yet!
61min: Klopp has been booked for some exuberant behaviour on the touchline.
60min: Yep, that’s Matip’s game over. Rhys Williams is coming on.
