Liverpool travelled to The Hawthorns on cloud nine this weekend following a huge 4-0 victory over Mersyside opponents Everton earlier this week. However, they only managed a point against a side struggling this season.
Liverpool took the lead on 24 minutes against West Brom after Daniel Sturridge scored his seventh goal in six appearances and also his 50th career Premier League goal.
Despite the best efforts from Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez from set pieces, the half ended with just the one goal separating the two teams.
The second half started and it was West Brom who came out flying, dominating the possession and the chances and an equaliser looked imminent. The goal eventually came through substitute Victor Anichebe after the former Everton player capitalised on a Kolo Toure miss-pass to bring the Baggies level after 67 minutes.
It was end to end stuff in the last 20 minutes but nothing except from a growing yellow card count happened. It will definitely be Liverpool heading home disappointed, though, with Tottenham, Manchester United and Newcastle all dropping points on Saturday.
Sunday's match was a real opportunity for Liverpool to give themselves breathing space in fourth. Although Pepe Mel's side managed a decent result against a top team, this is only his second point gained since taking over and his side are only one point away from the relegation zone.
