Unfortunately a result we absolutely deserved. A very poor second half. Hopefully, we learn from this and bounce back.

A centre back signing in January is a must now. No centre half of us is dominant in the air except Nat Phillips who has got other problems. Matip just can't be trusted with his injury record. Every time he gets injured, which is quite often, the team's rhythm and confidence breaks a bit.
Mark Doherty
Mark Doherty:
We've had a few of these types of performances this season. A bit complacent and lack of urgency. A few players, dare I say it, almost looked a little too arrogant at times. Very disappointing and a big opportunity missed today. Can't be dropping points to teams like West Brom if we want to retain out title.

Reminiscent of the Houllier and Rafa yrs. Teams would come to Anfield, defend deep, grab a point. One of the reasons Lfc went 30 years without the title.

Virgil wins the aerial duel which resulted in the West Brom equaliser 9 times out of 10. Can't believe people actually say we're not missing Virgil. An aerially dominant centre half signing is a must.

Honestly I expected the score to be at least 5-0 to us, mistakes happen, but our second half wasn’t good enough as we expected it to be, we deserved it because of the way we played, it saddens me but hopefully next match we’ll bounce back and win

I rate Curtis but why does he think he’s iniesta just pass the ball stop tryna dribble every player especially on the edge of ur own box

No klopp we didn't deserve to win, 3rd draw with teams from the bottom, we should use such games to collect points not to take a break!!

It was a game of quite brilliant tactics by the WBA manager. He knew his team will not be able to last 90 minutes if they play the "normal" game, so the first half, it was a 164 tight configuration, blocking all the channels and parking the bus. Liverpool was able to be so dominant only because WBA squandered all possession. On the one hand only able to score one goal frustrated Liverpool, but at the same time, this actually boost the hopes of the WBA players. Once he let his team go out attacking, we can feel a different team.

I think Liverpool expected more of the same in the second half, and had planned accordingly. Since Liverpool wasn't able to score more, WBA only need one set piece or one lapse of attention to grab one point. Not a lot of managers would have thought through the entire objective and process so thoroughly, and I think Samuel Allardyce did a superb job handling this game. It is not everyday you see a David vs Goliath contest when David steal a point.

Felt like I was watching a cheap Guardiola or Arteta impression today. Lots of possession, spamming crosses but only 2 shots on target (2nd one coming in the stoppage time!)
That was never going to work against a team basically playing 4 CBs, unless you have Air Ronaldo or Zlatan up front
Needed to bring on Ox or Shaqiri earlier, they're the ones that can either pick a pass through the D or test the keeper from distance

Thought the midfield selection was too obvious today, all three are functional and add very little to the attack, even Curtis Jones has become the same. This isolated the forwards and as Trent was by far our worst performer, this further isolated the front 3. Not often I criticise the manager but thought he was slow to react to the rather obvious problems. Also, I'm not gonna slate Jones as, yes, he caused the corner but ultimately it wasn't defended.

You just know that the opposition deserves something from the game if they've stopped Bobby from scoring a last moment game changer. Anyways, need to get over today's result and look into the future games

Puneet Kaushik
Puneet Kaushik:
Liverpool are dropping way too many by points by drawing these games, it might come back to haunt them just like the 97 point season when Man City pulled off a 14 game win streak at the end, similarly Man City will gain some kind of a form after arrival of fit Aguero.

Klopp need to be more active and not just scream at the refs, Jones was giving the ball away all game and should’ve been off way before he cost us the game.

We should have deffinately won this game.. We missed many chances in the first half and when matip was injured everything went into shambles
McLovin Jr
McLovin Jr:
I don’t want to hear Klopp complain about the 5 sub change when he makes changes so late into the half. Ox should’ve had at least 20-30 minutes to get into the game and what exactly is Origi going to do in 5 minutes? It doesn’t make sense. Shaqiri also on the bench and we could’ve used his creativity. A week off for this boring performance.
Håkon Rød
Håkon Rød:
I don’t want 2 say klopp made a mistake, but bringing on rhys was poor, not giving ox or Even shaq 20-30 mins was also bad. After Matip’s injury the game kinda drifted away from us. Maybe pushed for second goal harder, drop hendo down or something idk.
Ice Cool
Ice Cool:
When one of the skysports pundits said the game passed us by he wasn't kidding. After scoring we spent the other 80mins huffing and puffing without anything of significance except that Bobby header. Many of our usual heroes were below par except Robbie and Alisson. The Matip injury had an impact on our mentality. In all honesty we have to be grateful for a point and on to the next one.

Jurgen ,you really seem to be a man against his opinion, (5 sub rule) but you aren't making the 3 subs in the r8 moment ,we r have strong players from the bench that could help us win the game such as shaq,ox ,milner ,minamino just bring the subs in time. I strongly believe they will do better🙂

Layth Barzangi
Layth Barzangi:
Let's be honest here, this loss was a tactical screw-up and it's entirely on Klopp. I still believe Curtis Jones is a brilliant player but Klopp should've noticed that he was having an off day today and brought on Ox (or Shaq) much earlier. The game shifted when Ox came on as he livened up the midfield and almost got us goal through an assist had it not been for Johnstone's save, but it was all a little too late. I don't think Rhys can be blamed for the equaliser, as it was Curtis's mistake and with the ball flying awkwardly he did the right thing by sending it out for a corner -- which could have amounted to nothing had we defended it properly (we didn't press well enough to make it difficult to cross from a corner played short). There's a lot to learn from this match.
Albert Lye
Albert Lye:
We should've topped the table with 5 points but we let ourselves down by not scoring more goals eventhough we had 8 shots on target and more than 70% possession .
PotatoAimNr1
PotatoAimNr1:
Surely now we'll sign a centre half.
Yeah, Matip and Gomez are both good enough to start every game, but if they're injured we have to rotate the defence to much. Now with Virg gone even more so.
The youngsters are doing a good job, but it might just be too much to ask to play every other week.

This was totally klop fault, he never clinically intervene on time when something goes wrong, it was clear from the first half that Jones not functioning, waiting till minutes 80 of the game to make the change !!? it is too late.
Jodash Pillay
Jodash Pillay:
We becoming the next Barcelona, knocking the ball from side to side, wanting to score a fancy goal. The thing I don't understand is how West brom can get the ball up the field so fast with them playing a 6-4 formation and we could not defend that. Kloop needs to address that in his meetings.
Gary Gussanian
Gary Gussanian:
Klopp must teach his new young players like Jones and Arnold to focus until the last minute of the match. Jones' arrogance and recklessness was the reason for the draw today. WBA did what they know best and went home happy. The solution is very simple Mr. Klopp: Do your best and focus to the last minute and you shall get results.

The game plan was a bit bewildering especially in the second half when the team started to run out of energy. You are winning against a team that their only goal is to defend en mass and hopefully strike in a counter attack. Why would you play their game when you are already winning? Fall back a bit and wait force them to change their tactics. Instead Liverpool played exactly how they wanted them to.

Sometimes it feels like Liverpool spends more on Naby Keita's medical bills than transfers.. Most Liverpool players were bought for a bargain price. But the same can't be said for Keita. A healthy amount of 50 million was spent for him. Klopp needs to take a decision on him at the end of this season.. This playing one game and staying injured for the next 5 can't continue

P.E.M. Run Balance Wheel - RBW:
🧐: Everything Jürgen Klopp stated, is factual.
And , I’d like to add:

At the 60th minute, Rhys Williams made a good tackle, in fact;
The West Brom player went down without being tackled, and got a free kick from the referee.

Jürgen Klopp , rightly vented his disgust regarding that decision. And yep, the referee gave him a yellow card.

Again, VAR representatives / the referee refereeing the game, was absolutely bias.

For example:
After Mané scored his goal, the West Brom player ie Furlong, began playing rugby against Mané.

Mané brought his concerns to the referee, and the referee basically told him, there’s nothing wrong with Furlong wrapping his arms around him (Mané),

Yes, the Liverpool team could of played better today; but there’s no excuse for the opposing team players, playing rugby instead of football, on the pitch.

So again, where was VAR in regards, to how Furlong played against Mané ?

We are liverpool !
