But since that victory, Liverpool have lost to the two worst teams in the EPL.
When Sadio Mane slid the ball through for Roberto Firmino he looked to have only one idea in mind.
Referee Craig Pawson denied West Brom a third goal after ruling out Craig Dawson’s effort by using VAR to determine that Gareth Barry was offside.
