Reds impress against poor Baggies

Liverpool continued their unbeaten Barclays Premier League run to seven matches after a comfortable 2-0 win against West Bromwich Albion.

The Reds were quick out of the blocks at The Hawthorns, with Charlie Adam breaking the deadlock from the penalty spot before Andy Carroll secured the win on the stroke of half-time.

Much of the pre-match conversation surrounded Baggies boss Roy Hodgson, whose spell at Anfield ended after a disappointing six months with the club.

His replacement, Kenny Dalglish, will be the happier of the two tonight though as Liverpool bossed the match for long periods.

After just nine minutes, Luis Suarez was brought down in the box by Jerome Thomas, with the assistant referee enraging the home fans by telling referee Lee Mason to point to the spot.

Charlie Adam made no mistake, slotting past Ben Foster to give his side an early advantage.

Even without Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, Liverpool dominated with chances for Suarez and Carroll, and the £35 million January signing added to the scoreline in first-half injury time.

Jonas Olsson gave the ball away from a free-kick, and when Suarez found his strike partner in space, Carroll made no mistake after a poor first touch.

Somen Tchoyi fired wide with his side's best chance early in the second period, with Suarez's shot blocked and Foster making saves from Jose Enrique and Carroll.

Stewart Downing also had a chance to add a gloss to the scoreline, but 'King Kenny' will be satisfied with a 2-0 win.
