The Reds climb to fifth in the standings with a comfortable win, while West Brom remain in 13th spot. See you next time, have a good one!
Liverpool keep hold of the ball after enduring a decent spell of pressure from Hodgson's game but outclassed men.
Downing rattles the upright with a low effort just after Reina punched bravely to deny Odemwingie. There will be three minutes of injury time.
I disagree with Newcastle fan, i'm seeing a top four side here, the quality is there, and the team is starting to come together, this liverpool side will get better as the season goes on. they are not the finished article yet but they going in the right direction - Stuart
Bellamy gets his first touch deep in the Reds half. Can he mark the occasion with a third? Let's wait and see.
Time running out for the hosts. Liverpool have been good value for their seemingly imminent three points here although the Baggies are threatening in the closing stages.
As mentioned earlier, this is Bellamy's 250th Premier League appearance. Suarez was showing signs of fatigue - he certainly gave it his all tonight.
A Newcastle fan with altitude sickness there I think. Lets see who finishes highest at the end of the seaon. A bit early for you Geordies to get excited after playing Wigan, QPR, Villa, Fulham, Sunderland, Blackburn & Wolves. Rich Blacker Liverpool fan in Leeds.
Cox turns smartly following an energetic run and pass from Thomas but he's unable to get the shot away.
Liverpool keep a firm grip of possession. The hosts desperately need to pull one back here to galvanise belief.
Foster, in the other goal, pulls of a superb reaction stop to deny Carroll's left-footed strike, with the Reds hitman doing well to control and shoot on the run.
Hi Stephen, can'y understand why Bellamy can't get a start, he clearly has the pace we need. Downing still hasn't produced the goods for Liverpool yet and as far as I'm concerned there are better players for £20m out there. Hope we don't slip up against another beatable team today.

More pressure from the Reds as Downing, who feed the overlapping Enrique in the previous move, has an unsuccessful crack at goal.
Carroll fails to get purchase on a header off a Reds corner. Shortly after he drags a shot across the face of goal, but the flag was up for offside.
An eerie lull in the stands as Pool retain possession at the back. Perhaps fears of a third are creeping in.
Olsson makes a brilliant block to deny Suarez in the box. Soon after the Reds striker is off target with an ambitious chip.
On his day, Suarez can be as good as anyone in world football, including Messi. How Hodgson must wish he had him when he was in charge at Liverpool. Shaun, Bangor
A lumbering Carroll gets some abuse from the stands as he goes on a run down the left. He really looks awkward compared to the silky Suarez.
Adam finds Suarez with a delightful ball over the top. The tricky striker beats two men in the box but runs out of space as Foster collects.
It's been a real lively start to the second half. Henderson does well to hold up a twisting and turning Odemwingie.
Tchoyi rattles an effort across the face of goal after turning sharply. A diving Reina looked to have it covered though.
Oh what a goal from a forward only firing on three cylinders, COME YOU REDS. 50 minutes will see us firing on all cylinders and no way back for the home side Neil Thompson South of England
Suarez is having an absolute stormer yet again for the Reds. Carroll did well to steer his effort home after his first touch was a bit heavy.
Carroll slides the ball past an onrushing Foster after being released by Suarez! There will be two minutes of optional time.
Thomas and Suarez clash with the latter clutching his knee. it's fair to say the home fans doubt the severity of the knock.
Olsson slides in to deny Carroll the chance to reach Downing's cross after the Liverpool wideman was superbly released by Suarez.
Encouraging period there for the hosts, who have been under some heavy pressure in this opening half.
Odemwingie narrowly fails to get on the end of Tchoyi's grounded cross. Soon after Paul Scharner has an effort charged down.
Suarez and Carroll combine nicely before feeding Downing down the left. Jose Enrique goes on the overlap but Downing opts to cross and his delivery is poor.
Hi Stephen, I think that Liverpool have to capitalize this weekend and get 3 points to put a lot of pressure on Chelsea. Chelsea still have tough games against Liverpool, City and Tottenham before Christmas. I think Liverpool will come out on top with a 0-3 win win Suarez scoring twice.
Suarez balloons the ball over the cross bar with a snap shot inside the Baggies box. That was a great chance.
Gareth McAuley cuts out a cross by Downing, who is getting increasingly involved down the left for the Reds.
Downing does brilliantly to find Carroll with a cushioned header but the Baggies regroup and deal with the danger.
The Reds go route one in search of the towering Carroll but Foster is alert and collects again in relative comfort.
Carrol has a diving header deflected wide by a stray arm from Reid. The West Brom man didn't know anything about it and neither did the ref it seems. Would have been a harsh penalty it must be said. Delightful floated cross by Suarez nonetheless.
Hi Stephen, I'm a massive Liverpool fan living in the south of England. I think this is a tough game for the Reds today, West Brom are a decent set-up but hopefully we can demonstrate the tenacity we showed against Stoke and push for 3 points. We need to keep a Champions League place in sight. Prediction would be Liverpool to scrape a win 2-1. Would love to see Carroll score today, and Downing to show the form he had at Villa. Suarez on Score sheet again today.Cheers Dan
Odemwingie forces Reina into action with a header off a cross by Billy Jones. Difficult chance though.
Carroll is penalised for handball when attempting to chest the ball under pressure. He doesn't like the decision.
West Brom 1 Liverpool 1. Liverpool will be the better team but West Brom will want to keep it tight at the back seening as they are at home. Goals by Henderson for liverpool and Tchoyi for West Brom.
Billy Jones, Preston's player of the season last year, disappoints with an aimless ball down the left flank for the Baggies.
Luis Suarez's first touch lets him down as he fails to collect a defence splitting ball from deep. Soon after Charlie Adam fires wide after being teed up by the Uruguayan on the edge of the area.
Send your predictions/thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll publish the pick of them before and throughout proceedings.
Notably, Reds substitute Craig Bellamy could make his 250th Premier League appearance, while teammates Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel will both celebrate 100 Premier League outings.
Baggies boss Roy Hodgson, formerly at Pool, has opted to pair Somen Tchoyi with Peter Odemwingie up front, while Suarez has clearly passed a late fitness test for the Merseysiders. There is no Gerrard while Johnson returns as expected.
Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Enrique, Agger, Skrtel, Henderson, Downing, Lucas, Adam, Suarez, Carroll. Subs: Doni, Coates, Flanagan, Maxi, Spearing, Kuyt, Bellamy.
West Brom: Foster, Olsson, McAuley, Jones, Tchoyi, Brunt, Reid, Thomas, Mulumbu, Scharner, Odemwingie. Subs: Fulop, Shorey, Dawson, Morrison, Dorrans, Gera, Cox.
If you enjoy a punt, West Brom are 11/4 to beat Liverpool according to Sky Bet, while Gerrard is 10/1 to collect a brace.
Visiting skipper Steven Gerrard and defender Glen Johnson should be available after missing out against the Potters.
The Reds, held by Norwich in their previous league test, are sweating over the fitness of Luis Suarez, with the in-form hitman hurting his ankle against Stoke in Carling Cup action.
The 13th-placed Baggies, 2-1 victors at Aston Villa last weekend, are minus injured striker Shane Long (knee).
