Liverpool could not unpick West Brom’s defence during a frustrating stalemate at Anfield that left the Reds outside the top four.

Roberto Firmino screwed a side-foot finish narrowly wide before Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross eluded Mohamed Salah in the first half.

The Baggies came just as close before the interval, however, with Hal Robson-Kanu’s measured curling shot from distance flicking the bar.
