Liverpool continued their march towards Champions League football with a hard-fought win over West Brom at the Hawthorns.
It was uncharacteristically ugly from the Reds who tend to hide from any confrontation but just what was needed with the season coming to a close.
Coming up against a Baggies side well known for being hard to beat and hard in the tackle, it was billed as one Liverpool would struggle in. Considering that Liverpool hadn’t beaten any Tony Pulis side away from home before today, it’s a massive win.
The win is even more bizarre when you consider the fact that Liverpool scored from a set piece. Against West Brom. And kept a clean sheet. Away from home.
It’s just weird.
The win sends Liverpool back into third after Manchester City beat Southampton yesterday. Liverpool are now 9 points above fifth-placed Manchester United who are playing Chelsea this afternoon.
Roberto Firmino scored the goal just before half-time to seal the win and took his Premier League tally for the season to eleven and continued his hot run of form. Liverpool will need him and fellow Brazilian to continue their influential ways into the rest of the season in order to secure a top four finish.
This is the end of the match review because I can’t find the words to describe that miss from Alberto Moreno.
