Liverpool ambition to chase for that runners up spot in Premier League was halted this weekend as Jurgen Klopp’s men were held into a 2-2 draw by West Bromwich Albion.
Playing away from home didn’t lower The Reds’ intensity as they were pushing hard for goals straight from kick off, playing their usual aggressive attacking football.
That positive approach was immediately rewarded as Klopp’s boys got themselves in front after just four minutes of play through Danny Ings’ effort, which lasted until the half time break.
Things seem to get much better for Liverpool midway into the second half as they double their advantage, this time through their star attacker, Mohamed Salah, who has now equaled the 31 goals record in Premier League, joining names such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Alan Shearer and Luis Suarez.
However, going 2-0 down doesn’t seem to deter West Brom’s spirit as seven minutes later they pulled one back with an effort from Jack Livermore.
That goal spurred the home team as they continue to push forward vigorously in search for an equalizing goal, which The Baggies eventually got through Solomon Rondon two minutes before the final 90.
Drawing 2-2 certainly didn’t help The Reds’ ambition in pushing for that second place seat, but they do have a more important tie this midweek as they are set for an exciting battle against AS Roma in UEFA Champions League semifinal.
