By on October 22, 2016

Liverpool moved level on points at the top of the Premier League after easing to a 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Saturday night.

The Reds started brightly and opened the scoring in the 20th minute thanks to a superb team goal that ended with Saido Mane volleying home a Roberto Firmino cross for 1-0.

Jurgen Klopp’s side continued to dominate and doubled their lead just 15 minutes later as Philippe Coutinho carved the West Brom defence apart before firing in to the near bottom corner to make it 2-0 at the break.

Liverpool took their foot off the gas in the second half and allowed the Baggies to create a couple of decent chances to get themselves back in the game and they eventually took one when Gareth McAuley fired home after a scramble in the area following an 81st minute corner.

However, the Merseysiders held on to secure a vital 2-1 win that sees them go level on points with Arsenal at the top of the table with the north Londoners sitting at the summit thanks to their superior goal difference.
