Liverpool back to 3rd after 1-0 win over West Brom

Liverpool back to 3rd after 1-0 win over West Brom

The Brazilian nodded in a first-half victor to settle an unremarkable game and extend the Reds' unbeaten Premier League run to seven matches.

If his clenched-fist celebrations on the Hawthorns pitch had told their own story, Jürgen Klopp reiterated the significance of Liverpool's hard-fought victory over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday lunchtime as he celebrated "three very important points" in their pursuit of Champions League qualification.

Liverpool has 66 points from 33 games, although it has played one more game than Manchester City which sits two points adrift in fourth. Liverpool were barely troubled by any West Bromwich Albion set-piece and even scored off a set-piece against them. There was a sense of irony that West Brom ended up getting undone in that department.

A goalless half-time beckoned at the end of a cagey first half before Firmino rushed in at the back post to convert Lucas' flick-on past goalkeeper Foster. We are very pleased with the performance and those three points were massive today.

Firmino has been one of Liverpool's best players this season, and his performance against West Brom was of the highest quality.

James Milner, who supplied the assist for Firmino, had a chance to kill the game off with a volley in the second half while Simon Mignolet produced a great stop to deny Matt Phillips grabbing an equaliser.

He did not play in Game 7. "What's insane is that this season seemed like it went by faster than the one a year ago ", Lue said. George leads the Pacers in scoring averaging 23.7 points a game while shooting 46 percent from the field.

And substitute Alberto Moreno should have settled it in stoppage time but, after goalkeeper Ben Foster had come up for a corner and been dispossessed, shot wide of an open goal from 40 yards.

The 24-year-old Brazil global has scored nine goals and tallied six assists to help Liverpool up to fourth position in the Premier League this season.

"We've had the opportunities again and especially against the top teams you have to take your chances".

"We know it's a hard place to go to, West Brom, especially the last 10 minutes, but we dealt well with it and I think we deserved the three points". Against West Brom. And kept a clean sheet.

Liverpool went into the fixture in the West Midlands having under-performed during their visit to Stoke City last weekend, and it initially appeared that they were going to replicate their efforts from that match.
