  • End of 2nd Half

FT: West Brom 2-2 Liverpool. The Baggies staged a late fightback to salvage a point that probably won't be enough to give them real hope of avoiding the drop. Goals from Livermore and Rondon in the final 11 minutes denied the Reds, who had looked on course for a win courtesy of efforts from Ings and Salah.


Milner with a sight of goal - but he rifles wide from 25 yards out.


West Brom pile forward. Phillips flies in to meet a right-wing cross, but van Dijk is there to make a crucial header clear for the visitors.


Four minutes added.


West Brom will be eight points adrift of safety with just three games to play if they draw. But can they win it?

GOAL! The Baggies are level! Rondon meets Brunt's left-wing free kick and powers home with Karius in no man's land.


Still time for West Brom to rescue a point here. Liverpool looking tired in defence.


Karius comes flying out of goal to deny Rondon after Lovren's header back was short.

The resulting free kick from the right is only half cleared by Liverpool. Dawson puts it back into the mix with an acrobatic attempt, but it won't fall for Rodriguez and Karius is out to claim.


Moreno booked for hacking down Phillips.


West Brom won't be happy to see Firmino. The forward has been directly involved in four goals in his last four min allatches against them in all competitions (two goals, two assists).


DID YOU KNOW? Firmino is now the third Brazilian to make 100 Premier League appearances for Liverpool, after Lucas Leiva (247) and Philippe Coutinho (152).

Liverpool preparing changes. Firmino and the Ox set to enter the fray.


Salah with a run towards goal. Moreno is to his left but the forward opts to shoot from 20 yards and sees his effort easily blocked.


High praise.


Liverpool clear the corner and look to break. Salah leads the charge. It eventually slows down and then comes to nothing when Ings' scooped pass towards the Egyptian is nodded back to Foster.


Phillips with a superb run down the right. He beats two to get to the byline and looks to cut it back for Rodriguez, but Van Dijk is well placed to hack it behind.


Fair to say it's been a busy afternoon for Ings so far. He's been involved in plenty of major incidents.


Ahmed Hegazy tussles with Ings and then punches the Liverpool forward in the stomach after they both fell to the ground. The West Brom is fortunate the referee didn't see that. The hosts could easily be down to 10-men.


McClean earns a yard to drill a low cross into the middle, but Rodriguez is caught on his heels and Liverpool manage to clear.


STAT: The Reds have netted in 15 of their 18 PL away games this season.


CLOSE! Rondon almost gets in ahead of Karius after Klavan let a long, diagonal ball bounce.


Replays showing Dawson clearly tripped Ings as he looked to make a burst into the middle of the penalty area. Liverpool unlucky not to get a spot kick.


A loose ball drops for McClean 25 yards out, but he doesn't cut across the ball as he was hoping and his drive flies well wide.


Liverpool started the half really brightly, but West Brom are now showing signs of coming back into it.


Liverpool almost in... but Salah can't get the shot away after wriggling free on the right of the WBA box.

  • 2nd Half

KICK OFF! West Brom restart the contest knowing they need to somehow turn this around to have any hope of pulling off the miracle of staying up.

  • End of 1st Half

HT: West Brom 0-1 Liverpool. Ings' first goal in 930 days separates the sides after a lively first period.


One minute added.


STAT: Liverpool have won five and drawn one of their last six PL matches. They have kept three clean sheets in their last five league matches on their travels.


GREAT SAVE! Salah outfoxes his man on the right edge of the box and feeds Ings who can't beat Foster from close in. Smart stop by the keeper.


Liverpool knocking it about at the back, trying to slow it down and take the sting out of the situation. West Brom's tails are up.


CLOSE! Livermore curves a delightful right-wing cross to the far post. James McClean arrives to volley it across the six-yard box, with Rodriguez inches away from converting on the stretch.


West Brom sensing their best chance may well come from a set piece. They win a succession of corners with yet another delivery from the left evading everyone in the middle. Liverpool less than convincing with their defending, but they got away with a couple there.


Another whipped left-wing corner is missed by Karius, but once again Dawson can't get on the end of it.


Liverpool survive a nervy moment as Brunt's left-wing corner towards the far post is missed by both Rodriguez and Dawson.

Mohamed Salah of Liverpool

Ings in the wars again as he goes into a tasty challenge with Rondon. The referee has a word with the forward, but should have perhaps cautioned him for a wild, second kick at the Liverpool man.


Milner clips it into the middle to try and catch WBA out, but Dawson is alive to the danger and heads it to safety.


Salah tumbled once more. This time it's Gibbs who commits the foul. Free kick 30 yards out but more central this time.


Salah's next goal would see him equal the Premier League record of most goals in a 38-game campaign. Alan Shearer (1995-96), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007-08) and Luis Suarez (2013-14) all notched 31 goals.


Salah curves it over the wall but it continues to arc and flashes a yard wide of Foster's left-hand post.


Free kick to Liverpool 30 yards out. Salah lining it up...


Ings races into the middle but can't adjust in time to guide a header from a right-wing cross on target.


Rodriguez takes down a high pass near the right byline and tucks it back for Phillips. The winger jinks inside but hits a timid effort that Karius is able to easily gather at his near post.


Rodriguez is faced by three Liverpool defenders on the edge of the box. He tries to shift it through and come out the other side, but Klavan slams the door shut and moves it clear for Liverpool.


STAT: The Baggies have not beaten Liverpool in their last nine Premier League meetings (D5, L4).


Brunt has a go from 30 yards out but it's well over the top.


Dawson guides a header back into the six-yard box from the resulting corner, but Liverpool hold their line well and three Baggies players are caught offside.


Phillips easily rolls Moreno and fires a dangerous cross towards the far post where Gomez is alert to guide it behind for a corner.


ALTERNATIVE STAT: West Brom would be 12th in the table on 37 points if matches finished at half-time.


Almost two. Salah dances beyond Ahmed Hegazy on the right of the box but sees his shot towards the far corner take a vital nick off Jake Livermore and fly just over.


Confirmation of just how long that's been since Ings last netted. He deserves that given his injury hell.


As it stands, Liverpool would need just one win from their last three matches to confirm a top four finish. West Brom would be nine points adrift of safety with just nine for them to play for. PLenty of football left in this one though, and still time for events to turn.


That was Ings' first goal for the Reds since October 4, 2015.


It was a sloppy goal from West Brom's point of view. They completely switched off, allowing Liverpool to take the short corner and get in-behind.

GOAL! Ings smashes home from eight yards out after Mane had exchanged a quick one-two with Milner from a left-wing short corner and fired a low cross into the middle.


Milner's flick through towards Ings is well cleared by the hosts. They waste little time pumping it forward. Rondon again looks to drive down the right side, but Klavan sticks to his guns and after an old-fashioned tussle wins a free kick for the visitors.


Rondon threatens briefly on the right of the Liverpool box, but Karius is alert and flies out his goal to smother at the forward's feet.

  • 1st Half

KICK OFF! Liverpool get us underway.


Jay Rodriguez scored the winner at Man United last week and looks like a man determined to get back to his best after a charge of racially abusing Brighton defender Gaetan Bong was "not proven".


DID YOU KNOW? Baggies caretaker boss Darren Moore made three PL appearances against Liverpool as a player. He lost on each occasion.


It's worth pointing out that West Brom earned a goalless PL draw at Anfield back in December - and then won 3-2 in L4 when they pulled off an FA Cup shock a month later. Can they thwart the Merseysiders again and ignite some belief they can pull off mission impossible?

Dominic Solanke, right, beat West Brom's Ben Foster but was denied his first Liverpool goal after it was ruled out for handball

Klopp: "West Brom want to show that they believe in that little last chance, and we need to be at our best. We lost [to West Brom] in the FA Cup, I don't have to remind anyone of that! Then, after the game, we think about Rome."

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by West Brom at Anfield on Wednesday

West Brom first-team coach Darren Moore: "We can't change what has happened before. We are just looking to the future now and the remaining games. The biggest thing that fills me with joy is how everyone at the club has pulled together and supported me in this role. It's been great."

West Brom are unchanged from the surprise win at Man United. They are also boosted by the return of Jonny Evans and Hal Robson-Kanu from injury. The duo are named on the bench.

Jurgen Klopp may say otherwise, but his team selection shows he clearly has one eye on Roma on Tuesday night. He makes five changes with three of those in the back four. Ragnar Klavan, Joe Gomez and Alberto Moreno feature along with James Milner and Danny Ings. Roberto Firmino is on the bench.
