Lallana was involved in a large percentage of Liverpool’s good work through the first half, turning up at both ends of the pitch with regularity. His good work down the right flank led to the first half chance for the home side in the twelfth minute, though Rickie Lambert failed to connect with his subsequent cross.Liverpool vs West Brom 2-1 match report results

Selected ahead of Mario Balotelli for the match, Lambert would see several similar chances fall to him throughout the opening period, but it was Raheem Sterling to threaten next after a jinking run. His shot following was blocked by Stephane Sessegnon. Liverpool latest news.

The Baggies were looking comfortable on the ball when they had it, with young livewire Saido Berahino effective in his role up front. He was hacked down recklessly by Martin Skrtel as he threatened down the left channel which led to a yellow card. After defending the free kick, the Slovakian delivered a ball over the top to Lambert. The former Southampton would get his second chance at goal of the opening stages, but he could only fire a curling shot at England colleague Ben Foster.

Brendan Rodgers wanted to see his frontman involved higher up the pitch after Mario Balotelli’s ineffective performance against Basel in midweek, but Lambert’s third chance got away from him towards the end of the half after he took too long with the ball in the visitors’ area.

Berahino was proving a threat at the other end, first testing Mignolet with a long range shot after a swift counter. The English youngster missed the best chance of the half late on though after he put a free header over the bar following a cross from the left side.

While West Brom missed their chance, Liverpool made no mistake with theirs on the stroke of half time. And it was Lallana who proved the difference. Neat footwork and a good interchange with Jordan Henderson worked Lallana some space down the left channel of the box, and a low left footed strike beat Ben Foster to give the home side the lead at half time.

The teams would continue to trade possession and attacks after the break, but West Brom took their chance to equalise ten minutes in. Berahino was brought down on the edge of the box by Dejan Lovren and referee Michael Oliver pointed contentiously to the spot – despite the offence being committed just outside. Berahino smashed the penalty home anyway for 1-1.

Five minutes on from the equaliser, Liverpool pulled back in front after a penalty shout of their own. Raheem Sterling ran into the box and looked to go down under pressure, but as several players froze to await a decision of the referee, the 19-year-old got back to his feet and squared to Henderson, who rolled the ball in to the far post.

With Liverpool back in the lead, there were no signs that either side were finished with looking to score another. The match transitioned into an end-to-end affair with good chances being missed at either end. Sterling was sent through and raced past the West Brom defence with fifteen minutes to go, but made a mess of his touch while getting into position to shoot and ended up losing the ball.

The Reds remained on top as time ticked away and Mario Balotelli tested Foster in injury time, but the home side held off West Brom’s late attempts to salvage a point to take all three themselves.

Liverpool (4-2-3-1): Mignolet; Manquillo (Johnson 64), Lovren, Skrtel, Moreno; Gerrard, Henderson; Lallana, Coutinho (Lucas 75), Sterling; Lambert (Balotelli 64).

West Brom (4-2-3-1): Foster; Gamboa, Lescott, Dawson, Pocognoli; Morrison (Blanco 81), Gardner; Brunt (Samaras 30), Sessegnon, Dorrans (Mulumbu 71); Berahino.
