'ZONAL MARKING DRIVES ME MAD'
Steve McMahon - speaking in the Sky Sports studio - was left frustrated with Liverpool's decision to employ zonal marking.
"Nobody is taking control of the danger area. Zonal marking
drives me crazy – the second goal comes from it, too. There’s more responsibility
with man marking – it’s simple football."
The Baggies could still be relegated this weekend if Palace
don’t lose at Watford and Swansea win tomorrow at Manchester City.
Interestingly, Darren Moore turns 44 tomorrow. Not exactly
the birthday present he’d be wishing for.
WEST BROM 2-2 LIVERPOOL
FT: Brilliant comeback from the Baggies. They were 2-0 down thanks to goals from Ings and Salah. Everything looked rosy in Liverpool's garden at that point. But, West Brom hit back from two set-pieces. Livermore and Rondon with the goals. Their survival hopes remain mathematically alive but they are eight points from safety. Stay tuned for reaction.
WATCH: RONDON GOAL
90+3: SWING AND A MISS! West Brom won't want this game to end. Evans heads a ball back across goal and Burke is waiting on the edge of the box. He takes a swipe but makes no contact! That could be that.
90+2: TACKLE! Liverpool rocking here. Rondon sprints down the right and pings a lovely ball towards Phillips. In comes Van Dijk with a shuddering clearance. Superb defending.
90: FOUR MINUTES ADDED ON!
GOAL! WEST BROM 2-2 LIVERPOOL (Rondon, 88)
OH MY! Liverpool crumble from ANOTHER set-piece.
Brunt swings over a quite brilliant ball into the near post and Rondon gets the run on Lovren and Firmino. Karius then half commits to coming out but ends up in no-mans land. Rondon bullets a header past him.
Where was this fight earlier in the season? West Brom are going down - but they're going down fighting.
WEST BROM 1-2 LIVERPOOL
87: CHANCE! Phillips finds space and fires in a wicked ball that Rodriguez meets on the run. His header is straight at Karius.
86: Oxlade-Chamberlain sprints away down the right. He has Firmino in support and finds him with a wonderful pass. The Brazilian tries to head one towards the bottom corner but Foster mops up easily.
84: SUB! Time to shut up the Klopp shop. Lovren is on for Salah.
83: A long ball towards the back post sees Phillips tower above Moreno. His knock-back Rondon is hooked clear.
WATCH: LIVERMORE GIVES BAGGIES HOPE
GOAL! WEST BROM 1-2 LIVERPOOL (Livermore, 79)
Maybe this one isn't over? And it won't come as a surprise to read that it came from a set-piece. Liverpool have looked shaky all afternoon.
A corner is pinged into a good area and West Brom win the first ball before Livermore sweeps home from six yards out. Roma will be watching this. Licking their lips, I'd assume.
WEST BROM 0-2 LIVERPOOL
75: No response from West Brom, who look broken. Their relegation could be confirmed tomorrow if Swansea avoid defeat at Manchester City.
WATCH: SALAH DOUBLES LIVERPOOL LEAD
GOAL! WEST BROM 0-2 LIVERPOOL (Salah, 72)
THAT'S NUMBER 31!
Can you hear that? It's Harry Kane sighing.
You can't stop this guy. Oxlade-Chamberlain breaks through the middle and spots the Salah run. He takes the ball into his stride, then it's dinky-dink time, over Foster. Wonderful finish from a quite wonderful player.
He’s now equalled Luis Suarez’s record of most goals scored
by a Liverpool player in a PL season - 31 set in 2013/14.
WEST BROM 0-1 LIVERPOOL
71: SUB! Evans replaces McClean. Change of system with Moore opting for a 3-5-2 now.
69: YELLOW! Phillips once again absolutely destroys Moreno down the right. The full-back can only chop him down. Clear booking.
66: Rondon causes a bit of panic down the left. He feeds Brunt who sends in a very dangerous ball but Klavan does well to flick it away from Rodriguez. Good defending.
64: SUBS! Double change. Firmino, Oxlade-Chamberlain on. Ings and Mane off.
61: A long ball into the West Brom picks out Salah at the back post. His first touch kills the ball dead but the offside flag cuts short the attack.
58: Brilliant from Phillips, who goes into Thierry Henry mode. He out-sprints and powers past four Liverpool defenders down the right flank. He gets to the by-line but his low cross is hooked clear by Klavan.
55: More pressure from the Baggies, who have upped the ante since the break.
FLASHPOINT! Hegazi and Ings tussle on the ground. The foul is given against Ings, who isn't happy. You can see why on the replay. Hegazi clearly punches Ings in the stomach. Nothing Anthony Joshua-like in terms of power but a punch is a punch. Lucky boy. The referee missed it.
52: CLOSE! A long ball over the top causes problems for Klavan against Rondon. The ball bounces through to Karius but Rondon doesn't give it up. Karius has to make a flying punch to clear the danger.
49: WIDE! Pressure from West Brom. Phillips sprints off his wing and moves it to McClean about 22 yards out. He unleashes a low drive that whistles well wide of the post.....
47: PENALTY APPEAL..NOT GIVEN! Ings breezes into the box and is completely wiped out by Dawson. The ball was heading through to Foster but it looked a clear obstruction by Dawson...the referee is unmoved.
46: Here we go. The second-half is kicked off by West Brom....
WATCH: HALF-TIME HIGHLIGHTS
HALF-TIME PRICE BOOST
A rare goal for Danny Ings - can he make it two? He's now 7/2 to score again at the Hawthorns. If you think Mo Salah will get his customary goal, he's boosted from 3/1 to 10/3 to score next.

HT: A nice moment for Danny Ings, who scored his first goal since 2015 which separates the teams. Liverpool have probably just shaded it as Ings was denied by Foster but the Baggies have looked a threat from crosses. Still life in this one. See you in 15.
45: One minute added on.
44: Liverpool knocking the ball around nicely in the sunshine.
42: SAVE! Salah makes something happen out of nothing down the right. He finds Ings with a clever pass. His first touch is epic and it sets himself from 12 yards out. He should score...but Foster gets out quickly and saves with his legs.
WATCH: MCCLEAN GOES CLOSE
41: Liverpool settle the game down again. They've rarely threatened in truth. Playing in second gear since the opening goal.
38: CHANCE!! The hosts should be level. Livermore bursts forward and dinks a lovely ball towards the back post where Brunt is waiting. He volleys a ball back across the face and Rodriguez is inches away from turning it home. So close.
36: CORNER! Good spell of pressure. Brunt swings in a very dangerous ball which has Dawson and Rondon interested....but the ball misses them both and again sails out for a Liverpool throw. Klopp's men look suspect defensively from inswingers.
34: CORNER! Gibbs floats a cross towards the back post where Dawson is waiting. He mistimes his run and the ball sails out for a Liverpool throw. Set-pieces look West Brom's best option to pull one back here....
31: Messy spell of passing. Nyom tries to find Phillips down the line but the ball ends up going straight out of play. Groans from the home fans.
29: Scrappy play in midfield. Ings flies in on Rondon then Rondon flies in on Ings. The referee doesn't like the second one as Ings stays down. It was a little late but nothing malicious.
26: FREE-KICK! Three defenders surround Salah about 25 yards out - two have a pull of his shirt. Clear foul.
Salah steps up and whips one with the inside of his boot....Foster watches it sail harmlessly wide.
24: CHANCE! Milner swings in a delicious cross from the right. Ings moves into space and meets the cross with a header from 15 yards out....over the crossbar.
23: SHOT! Brilliant first-touch by Rodriguez which sets up Phillips in space about 18 yards out. He decides against taking the shot on first time. Moreno gets back and does enough to suffocate Phillips. His shot is weak. Straight at Karius.
