West Brom 1-1 Liverpool

Premier League – The Hawthorns – Sunday 15 May, 2016

Goals: Rondon 14′; Ibe 23′

Jordon Ibe’s excellent solo strike cancelled out Salomon Rondon’s opener, with a youthful Liverpool side held to a 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns.

Jurgen Klopp made 11 changes to his side from Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea, with one eye on next week’s Europa League final clash with Sevilla.

Unsurprisingly unsettling Liverpool early on, Klopp will have been encouraged as his young Reds produced a reasonable performance away from home.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at West Brom.


Youngsters like Cameron Brannagan, Sergi Canos and Sheyi Ojo were highlighted for their output…


“There are an awful lot of youngsters pushing for a spot in next season’s squad, and it will be very interesting to see which ones Klopp decides to give their chance next season.”

And Danny Ings‘ long-awaited return from an ACL injury was met with widespread positivity…

“Highlight was seeing Ings back after such a terrible injury.”
Rushies ‘Stache on the forums.


Though many pointed out Liverpool’s miserable, eighth-placed finish…

“22 points from last 12 games giving 70 points in a 38 game season but we finished disappointing 8th and choked it in the last two games which would have put us 6th.”

While attentions turned to Basel and the Europa League final!

“It is really all or nothing now. Either a CL place or nothing at all!”
