Liverpool have succumbed to a draw with Sam Allardyce’s men, and for the first time since 2018, have fewer shots at targets in Anfield than yesterday.
The equalizer in the second half of Semi-Ajai meant that the West Brom boss was responsible for designing another share of the points in Anfield.

The Reds got off to a bright start and dominated in the first half, but couldn’t expand Sadio Mané’s brilliantly robbed opener.
This is not a Liverpool-related statistic. Especially not in our home ground where we have a perfectly fitted trio in collaboration with MoSalah.
Even before the game, I expected West Brom to go to Anfield to absorb the pressure to get a slow win (or points) from set pieces and breaks.
But I don’t think anyone expected Jurgen Klopp’s men to be weaker than the league’s second-lowest scorer.
No matter how you look at yesterday’s outings, it was simply not enough. Especially after the incredible scoreline against Crystal Palace in the previous game.
Fortunately, Klopp does not allow his team to escape to Newcastle this week with such another performance.
Reds, expect a reaction.
