Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter with a mixture of disappointment and frustration at the Reds’ 1-1 draw at West Brom on Sunday afternoon.

A first-half Daniel Sturridge goal after great work by Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez had given Brendan Rodgers’ side a solid lead going into the break.

Until the second-half, West Brom offered little attacking threat and Liverpool looked comfortably, controlling the game with the help of Steven Gerrard impressing in his holding midfield role.

But a period of pressure in the second-half saw the Baggies draw level — if only for a blunder from Kolo Toure.

The Ivorian international defender had a lapse in concentration, playing a ball across the Liverpool box which was pounced upon by West Brom striker Victor Anichebe.

Anichebe duly took his opportunity and the former Everton man put a simple ball past Simon Mignolet for the home side’s equaliser.

It will be seen as two points dropped for Rodgers’s side who lost their stride in the second half.

The Reds next face Arsenal in the league next Saturday, and a much improved performance will be needed if Liverpool are to keep up their challenge for a finishing place in the top four.

Nevertheless, Liverpool remain unbeaten in 2014 and sit in fourth place, three points behind third place Chelsea, who are away at Man City on Monday night.
