Liverpool 1-1 West Brom: Late Ajayi’s Goal Halts Reds’ Surge At The Top

Liverpool surge at the top of the Premier League was halted as West Brom held them to a 1-1 draw on Sunday evening at Anfield.

Liverpool showed their intent from the onset with Mohammed Salah missing to get to an end of a pass from Andrew Robertson when West Brom was on the ropes.

The goal, however, came in the 12th minute when Sadio Mane received a nice pass before unleashing a shot straight into the bottom left corner in what was a finish of a good team effort. Mane was at it again in the 21st minute when his header, after out jumping the visitors’ defence, missed the target by a whisker.

In what was proving to be a half dominated by the home side, Trent-Alexander Arnold was to try his luck from a free-kick with Salah seeing his shot sailing over the bar, and despite a minute added on, Mane’s goal was to be the difference in the first half.

Just as they wasted opportunities in the first, Liverpool extended the trend in the second half with captain Jordan Henderson sending his effort out wide having been accorded space by the West Brom rearguard.

Liverpool was to receive a blow on the hour mark when Joel Matip was to be withdrawn for Rhys Williams. West Brom was to react with a substitution of their own with Matheus Pereira coming off for Callum Robinso then introduced Charlie Austin for Karlan Grant to boost their attacking options.

The changes seemed to have helped the visitors with the momentum they needed with Semi Ajayi restoring parity with eight minutes left on the clock; Liverpool reacting to the setback by throwing in Alex Chamberlain for Curtis Jones. Despite late pressure from the hosts, the Sam Allardyce side held for a precious one point.
