Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said he isn’t happy with his team for allowing relegation candidate West Bromwich Albion bounce back from behind and forced draw.
A dictating Liverpool side looked to be winners of the match after showing character and enjoying a two goal lead for more than an hour until Livermore pulled one before Rondom scored at the 88 minutes to level the scores.
Danny Ings scored for the Reds at the 4th minutes and goal predator Mohammed Salah doubled their lead at the 72nd minute but a surprise effort from Jake Livermoore seven minutes after Salah’s goal followed by Salomon Randon at the 88 minutes not only ensured a comeback but slight hopes of avoiding relegation.
The Baggies goal number one scorer Livermoore said they had started to believe in themselves and promised to fight to the end.
“It’s a shame really. We’ve started to gain that belief and confidence. All we can do is keep fighting for each other, the fans and staff. We can agree it’s not for the want of trying but the rub of the green hasn’t quite happened when last season maybe it did. If any of us knew what has gone wrong we’d have changed it 10 games ago. We’ve thrown away points from leading positions and it seems to have gone that way this season.”
Whereas Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp expressed unhappiness in his team for today’s results but added happiness will come on Tuesday in their Champions League semifinals match against Roma.
“In the moment no, but on Tuesday yes.”
There isn’t much worry for Liverpool because their position in the top four is reliable but hosts West Brom’s survival relies in the hands of Manchester City and Watford.
In case Swansea defeats Manchester City at Etihad tomorrow and Crystal Palace beat Watford today, West Bromwich Albion will be relegated.
