Match review: Liverpool vs West Brom

Published Add your comment

Liverpool thrashed West Brom 4-1 in the Premier League at Anfield yesterday.

With the help of a hat-trick from star forward Luis Suarez, they were able to ease their way to victory. 

It took just 12 minutes to get the first goal of the game as Suarez eased through the defence to slot home.

The Uruguayan would strike again just five minutes later with a brilliant header from the edge of the 18-yard box. Defender Aly Cissokho  crossed the ball to Suarez who smashed the header past West Brom keeper Boaz Myhill.

Suarez would complete his hat-trick with another header in the 55th minute. Coming from a free kick from midfielder Steven Gerrard, Suarez got a touch on the ball to guide it into the back of the net. 

Daniel Sturridge wasn't to be left out from the scoring, with his superb chip over Myhill coming in the 77th minute to complete the 4-1 scoreline. 

West Brom midfielder James Morrison scored a penalty for their consolation goal in the 66th minute. 

Liverpool barely out-shot West Brom 18-16. However, Liverpool had almost double their shots on target, 7-4. 

The Liverpool defence did well to nullify West Brom's attacking threats, limiting Morgan Amalifitano and Stephane Sessegnon to no efforts on goal. 

The game marked Steven Gerrard's 450th appearance for Liverpool in the Premier League. He is only the ninth player to do this in Liverpool's colours.
