Result: West Bromwich Albion 2-2 Liverpool
Date: 21 April 2018
Venue: The Hawthorns
Mohamed Salah continued his fine scoring run as Liverpool drew 2-2 with relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.
It took the Reds just three minutes to open the scoring as Sadio Mane's cross fell into the path of Danny Ings, who fired the ball into the bottom corner.
Despite the early setback, West Brom did look to hit back as Salomon Rondon was proving a handful for the Reds defence.
The hosts went agonisingly close to equalising on 36 minutes when Jay Rodriguez failed to get on the end of James McClean's cross with the net gaping.
Ings went close to doubling Liverpool's lead on 41 minutes but goalkeeper Ben Foster rushed out to deny the striker with a fine save.
The second half started at a slow tempo, although the Baggies enjoyed most of the possession as they pushed for an equaliser.
The slow start forced Jurgen Klopp to make a double change as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Roberto Firmino replaced Ings and Sadio Mane.
The Reds eventually doubled their lead in the 72nd minute as Oxlade-Chamberlain played in Salah, who lobbed the ball over Foster.
Five minutes later, West Brom pulled a goal back with a volley into an empty after the Reds failed to deal with an incoming corner.
The scores were level on 87 minutes when an un-marked Rondon sent a fine header past Loris Karius following a free-kick from Chris Brunt.
The Baggies pushed for a winner in the closing stages of the half, but the Reds held on as the spoils were shared.
