West Brom v Liverpool – story of the match

Jake Livermore and Salomon Rondon cancel out goals from Danny Ings and Mohamed Salah.

West Brom came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Liverpool.

Late goals from Jake Livermore and Salomon Rondon earned the Baggies a share of the spoils which leaves them eight points behind fourth-bottom Swansea with three games left, though their relegation could still be confirmed as early as Sunday.

Danny Ings’ first Premier League goal in 931 days was followed by Mohamed Salah’s 31st league goal of the season but Jurgen Klopp’s side conceded twice in the last 11 minutes.

Worked tirelessly for his team and then was rewarded with a goal at the end.

Moment of the match

The Hawthorns erupted when the Venezuela striker rose to head home Chris Brunt’s free-kick to complete the comeback after 88 minutes. West Brom fans know their team will probably still be relegated, but at least they are showing some fight these days.
