Thank you all for enjoying the game with us today, and for your contributions in the comment section.

Four minutes of added time to be played.


After dominating for much of this game, Liverpool are on the back foot now as West Brom look to get the winner.


Brilliant run by Burke and he’s brought down by Henderson to give West Brom a chance to manufacture a goal from a free-kick.


Chamberlain whips in an inviting cross and finds Firmino. His header tests Foster but it West Brom are spared.


Liverpool substitution:

84′: Salah makes way as Dejan Lovren comes into the game.


That was Livermore’s first ever goal for the Baggies. Meanwhile, Salah is on his 31st Premier League goal and 41 for the season.



West Brom really need to get a goal to strengthen their hopes of staying in the Premier League.


Liverpool substitutions:

65′: Roberto Firmino replaces Ings and Mane makes way for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.


Nifty bit of footwork from James Milner to cut inside, but can’t get the shot off.


Liverpool appear to getting ready to make some changes.

Roberto Firmino and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain look to be the ones about to make an introduction.


Brilliant footwork from Phillips to cut in along the end line. He tries to send the ball into Rodriguez but it’s deflected out for a corner.


McClean tries to cut the ball across, but Van Dijk sends it back out. Ings then commits a foul on Rodriguez, although he appears to be claiming that Rodriguez struck him in the chest while they were on the ground.

Replays suggest that Rodriguez did make contact.



Rondon almost managed to sneak in there after a long ball in from Foster, but Liverpool alleviate the danger and drill the ball back up the pitch.


More promising chances for West Brom, McClean with the latest attempt at goal.


There doesn’t seem to be any changes in personnel for the restart.


Ings goes down following a challenge from Dawson in the penalty area but the referee waves play on.


And the second half has started!


The players are making their way back onto the pitch for the second half.


That was a first goal for Ings in 930 days, and he really should have scored a second.


McClean dispossesses Gomez and does well to prevent a corner.



Ings should have two goals but Foster gets down well to keep it out. Again Salah played an instrumental role in the move.

Huge opportunity for West Brom there. Great work from Livermore to chip the ball across the Liverpool box. McClean gets a touch on it but Rodriguez can’t get into the net.


West Brom starting to come into the tie more.

Phillips forces Liverpool to concede a throw and they’re pressing the Liverpool cover. Making good use of the width of the pitch.



Another inviting corner in for West Brom but again Dawson fails to connect with it.


Brunt delivers in a corner for West Brom. Dawson runs from deep and tries to get a header on it, but it runs past him.


Rondon slides in with a risky challenge but after getting a talking to from the ref, he manages to escape a yellow card.


Another Liverpool free for a challenge on Mo Salah. He is causing a lot of damage to West Brom’s defence.

But the opportunity comes to nothing and the home fans can breathe again.


It’s not a bad effort off his left boot but he just steers the ball off target. Liverpool are quite dominant in the opening 25 minutes.


Great ball in from Milner. He whips the delivery in well, but it’s a poor header in the end from Ings.

He delivers the ball into Salah shortly after, who wins a free in a dangerous position just outside the box.


Phillips is causing some problems for Liverpool. He gets a shot off at Karius, but doesn’t have enough power in it and it’s an easy save.


Brilliant play from Phillips. He turns inside his man and loops in a lovely cross in trying to link up with James McClean but it’s headed out for a corner.

Good response from the Baggies.


Salah comes threatening again, dancing his way through the West Brom cover, but a Baggies’ boot comes across to cut the ball out of play.

West Brom struggling to deal with the Egyptian King at this early stage and there’s a long way to go in this tie.


Great link-up play between Gomez and Salah in the West Brom danger area.

Great shimmy from Salah to put him through one-on-one but his effort sails over.


Goal! Danny Ings puts Liverpool 1-0 ahead of West Brom.

Danny Ings puts Liverpool in front on 4 minutes. Great asssist by Mane.


Rondon gets on the end of the ball and tries to muscle his way past Klavan, but the referee blows the whistle for a free against him.

Liverpool move the ball up the other end and put in a dangerous cross, but it goes out for a corner which Salah will take.


And we are off at The Hawthorns. It’s the third meeting this season between the sides.

The teams are in the tunnel and getting ready to make their way onto the pitch.

Weather looks good at The Hawthorns. Not long now until kick-off.
