FT: Liverpool 0 West Brom 2

Well, that's it - I hope you enjoyed the commentary with me Rebecca Stephenson and thanks for all your tweets and emails. You can follow me on Twitter @1rebs and hopefully I'll see you again soon for another game.

Damien: Embarrassing from Liverpool. An old tale of not taking chances and not defending properly.

Steve Clarke will enjoy that victory back at his old club... an amazing victory for them

95
And that's it - what a result for West Brom who go above Liverpool with this win. The penalty save from Ben Foster propelled them forward to the ultimate smash and grab victory

92
Frustration for Suarez shows as he feels he should've had another penalty - he's booked for his reaction

90
What a smash and grab from WBA - hardly a shot all night long and what looks like a 2-0 win at Anfield - their fans are over the moon

89
break by West Brom... slipped into Lukaku...GOOOOAAALLLLL

88
Can West Brom hold out?? you tell me - tweet @1rebs, email rebecca.stephenson@bskyb.com

87
Lukaku takes the ball from his own half, all the way to the Liverpool box, but his shot is just wide

85
Can West Brom hang on??? Long is coming off to be replaced by Fortune

85
This one is claimed by Reina

84
West Brom have another corner here, good work by Morrison

82
Still time for Liverpool to prevent this being the most ridiculous smash and grab for a while... the latest Liverpool corner is cleared

81
Out of nothing Gareth McAuley with a magnificent glancing header past Reina

80
GOAL FOR WEST BROM - The Baggies score with just their 2nd attempt!!!

78
Here comes Coutinho for his debut - he looks about 12!! He replaces Downing

77
And Foster claims the resulting corner

76
SAVED!!!! Gerrard's kick was low to Foster's left and he does brilliantly to palm it away

75
Suarez goes down and the referee gives the penalty as Olsson is judged to have fouled him

74
Gerrard over the bar from outsid the area again

73
West Brom are going for it - Lukaku comes on for Dorrans

73
Downing over the bar from the free kick

72
Mulumbu tries to bundle through but is stopped in the area.. down the other end we go and another booking, this time for Brunt

70
How has that not gone in.. Gerrards effort saved by Foster and somehow Borini puts the rebound wide

69
Gerrard picks out Suarez but he dithers too long and the shot is blocked

69
Booking for Ridgewell for a cynical challenge that stopped a Liverpool breakaway

68
Corner to West Brom, away by Johnson

68
Downling lays it off to Borini, but his first time effort is saved by Foster

65
Gerrard tries to control a ball over the top from Downing but it was difficult coming over his head and he fails to do so

60
Corner is into the hands of Ben Foster

59
Now, free kick just outside the area for Liverpool... who will hit it? Suarez into the wall..second effort is behind for a corner

59
Borini and Sterling are coming on for Shelvey and Jordan Henderson

57
going to be a double change for Liverpool soon... Suarez meanwhile gets an effort woefully off target

55
Another Liverpool break breaks down on the edge of the box as Gerrard plays it straight to a navy and white shirt

54
West Brom still yet to muster an attempt on goal, despite doing well in holding ther own

to be fair it was a very wide angle

53
Needless corner conceded by Olsson under no pressure, Shelvey looks to have missed from a yard out - but he was offside

51
Gerrard gives the ball away in his own half but WBA dont have the players forward to capitalise.. Liverpool break... great save from Foster as Henderson backheels towards goal from a Johnson square ball

49
A goalmouth scramble as the ball drops to Downing twice, but his shots are blocked before Gerrard clashes with Foster, but the goalkeeper comes out on top

45
First attack of the half belongs to West brom but Reina claims the ball.. Ridgewell's ball in is cleared by carragher as west Brom enjoy the lion share at the start of the 2nd half

45
ok we're back underway here at Anfield

Ray: I echo previous. Liverpool not the team they were. Lukaku will come on WBA go 442 & sneak a 1-0. Come on you Baggies.

Shaun: ‏Wouldn't be surprised if this finishes a draw, Couthino on at half time mix things up a little hopefully

Darren: Why is everyone really confident that Liverpool will easily beat West Brom? Far too unpredictable and plainly not good enough. I'm sorry if this is news to all you Liverpool fans but you are not the team you used to be!

Not the best half of Premier League football you'll see this season, but its 45 minutes well done for WBA.

45
And that's Half Time

45
We're drifting towards the half time whistle - 1 minute of added time to go.. last attack for Liverpool, Downing crosses again but its scrambled clear to Lucas...Liverpool build again, finally falls to Johnson who shoots wide

44
David: Being a Boro fan I know how good Downing is when his confidence is up. Glad he finally showing the Kop what a good player he is

Tom Bird : I think it will be 2-1 to Liverpool because Wba will get tired and Liverpool counter and score with Suarez

jordan hal : no sturridge no cutting edge

41
And a penalty claim from the corner but nothing is given... and to finish a bad few minutes for Reid, he finds himslef in the book for a late challenge

40
Gerrard to Suarez.. Shelvey squares it to no-one but Reid completely inexplicably almost puts it in his own net... that would've rivalled Gareth Barry's finish for an own goal!

39
Its a pretty subdued atmosphere too - maybe the fans are starting to think about the half-time Bovril!! Can either side wake them up in the final five minutes of the half?

37
it opens up for Suarez on the edge of the box but he puts his left-foot shot just over

Its a game that's not quite sparking into life - too many misplaced passes... what do you think though - kep letting me know... @1rebs on twitter or rebecca.stephenson@bskyb.com

Sue: Liverpool are a spent force and even though I am positive we will win, you just never know what team are going to turn up.

34
Cleared but West Brom win it back... his attempted cross goes behind however

34
But its now a corner to WBA

32
Another chance for Agger is beaten away, they casn't keep giving him this much space

29
West Brom break but the ball into the area bisects three West Brom players. that was unlucky.

27
Great run from Brunt but he just can't turn the ball across to Long

25
Superb long range effort from Downing is saved at the second attempt by Foster, who now comes out of his goal to deny Suarez as he tries to intercept a back pass

23
A second corner is cleared by Mulumbu high into the centenary stand on the far side

22
west brom get caught with men up the field, Shelvey breaks, gives it to Downing, and Liverpool win a corner.... delivered - free header by Agger is tipped behind

21
But it's shortlived as the referee gives a foul

21
West brom earn their first corner, much to the satisfaction of their pocket of fans at the other end...

19
sublime skill on the byline from Suarez flummoxes his own teammates as he gets the ball across, but its cleared, and when it comes back to Suarez, a second ball into the area is cleared, no poacher around without Sturridge

18
Gerrard out to Downing, but his ball in is turned behind for a corner

16
Good move by Liverpool, Gerrard breaks, knocks it on to Suarez, Downing takes it to the byline but can't find a red shirt in the box

Remember, you can get your views on the game online tonight, just tweet me @1rebs or email rebecca.stephenson@bskyb.com

13
Johnson is seeing a lot of the ball and again gets it in a promising position but can't do anything with it

12
Liverpool have started to put together some more concerted possession in the past few minutes without creating much but taking control of the midfield

11
Gerrard it the latest to have a long range effort, his trickles wide after he was presented the ball by Dorrans poor control

10
Both teams struggling to keep possession as both play a pressing game when the other has the ball... bit scrappy

8
Shelvey puts the ball in the net but he's offside - its the right decision.... Johnson hit a dipping shot from the edge of the area, it was spilled by Foster, but Shelvey was offside when the ball was struck

7
Johnson in a good position on the far side, but his nudge of a pass into Suarez finds him offside

6
West Brom doing well here - through ball to long but he's offside

4
Suarez has the first effort, a volley from a wide angle but it goes wide

3
West Brom have started quite confidently, keeping posession

2
Injury here to Dorrans - he fell badly on his back after challenging for a ball in the air - but he should be OK

1
We're all set. and kicked off. West Brom are attacking the Kop in this first half.

Andrew: None of Brendan's signings starting today..? I guess not ALL of Kenny's signings were too bad. I fancy them for an early lead then a goal given away needlessly late on. 3 Points to LFC!

Flash: I hope West brom play well without odemwingie tonight just to show him what he is missing and that he isn't above them west brom lads...make him sweat!!!

The teams are out and You'll Never Walk Alone is blasting out of the speakers as the teams shake hands here at Anfield

Col:Liverpool to win with Carra to score!

Its a freezing night in Liverpool, lets hope the football is about to warm the crowd up here... we're just 10 minutes away from kick off now

Steve Clarke says the inclusion of Yacob and Mulumbu is crucial... and he's right - West Brom have won 7 games when those two have started

Jack: Liverpool to win 4-1.. suarez hattrick and coutinho, Long for West Brom

Mark: Interesting to see Jonjo in ahead of Borini. I think if we can get a comfortable lead we could see our new Brazilian playmaker given a cameo.

Brendan Rodgers confirms on Sky Sports that Daniel Sturridge was too much of a risk for tonights game as he recovers from that thigh injury

Just 20 minutes to kick off now... remember a win for Liverpool will take them above Swansea - 3 points behind Everton.... West Brom meanwhile would leapfrog Liverpool if they can win tonight

Nick Cary: Liverpool lose this and thats Champions League football gone for sure!

Tony Holmes: I see Mark says "West Brom have been going well"?! News to me as they've had the worst spell of the season since Xmas - what's he been watching?!....Liverpool are the form team, but West Brom have their midfield shield back, and hopefully will be tough to break down. Also they've left Lukaku on the bench, so less temptation to just hit aimless long balls up the middle. maybe a one-all draw

SimonWiggy: I'm going for a 1-0 win for West Brom

Casey: I can see a prolific performance form Liverpool; a confident 4-0 win for the Reds!

keep your views coming in - tweet me @1rebs or e-mail rebecca.stephenson@bskyb.com

Jonjo Shelvey is in for his first start of the year tonight... fancy him for the first goal? 7/1

Mike: 2-1 Liverpool.. I am a huge Pool fan.. I can see West Brom scoring.. probably be a howler from Reina..We need the 3 points..Come on the Pool

Shane Reidy: Massive game for the reds tonight need to back the performance against city with a win against the baggies tonight! 3-1 liverpool! Come on you reds.

Paul Furniss: Interesting to see our midfield duo back together, Yacob and Mulumbu... as it means Morrison is more attacking something we have missed for several weeks. i think it could be a tight game....1-1.

Michael:Hoping for a good Liverpool win tonight.. Good luck to Glen Johnson on his 100th prem league appearance for the reds 3-0

Mark Aylesbury: I think this will be a complete turn around of the first game of the season so 3-0 to LFC, all to come in the first half with suarez and gerrard bagging the goals. West Brom have been going well recently but i don't think they can keep it up.

Adam: This match is crucial, if Liverpool win then finishing fourth is still realistic, anything else then we will not get into Europe and could lose Suarez in the summer!

Mark: Looking for a dynamic performance from Liverpool tonight.....could be a demolition job....5-0 with a brace from suarez!!!

Fancy a 1-0 away win??? you can get 20/1 on that

A lot of you predicting a 3-0 win - if you go to Sky Bet, you can get odds of 8/1 on that - not a bad bet!

Nick Heap : I feel a convincing result tonight, 3-0 to the reds. Lets hope we can really push and make bid for 4th spot! Next season aim higher!

Kevin: I'm hoping for a big Liverpool win tonight, should be at least 3-0 to the reds. They played brilliantly against Arsenal and Man City and should've won both games but I'll settle for a nice win tonight. Suarez to score twice and Gerrard to get the other.

Javid: I reckon 2-0 Liverpool, Suarez to score both

So Sturridge hasn't recovered from his thigh injury in time to play - disapointing for Liverpool - and for me as I've just drafted him into my fantasy team!!

Jake Smith þ: Liverpool should be full of confidence going into this game, 3-0 Liverpool Suarez Hat Trick!

Syed Kashif Shah : Can't wait to see REDS push on for that most important fourth spot....I'll go for 3-0 for the REDS...COME ON YOU REDS

Carl Walton: I can see West Bromwich Getting a 2 - 1 win tonight

Ross Hendey: Home win 3-0 Suarez to get a brace.

On the bench for Liverpool.....Jones, Coutinho, Allen, Borini, Wisdom, Skrtel, Sterling

West Brom subs: Myhill (gk), Lukaku, Fortune, Jones, Rosenberg, Tamas, Thomas.

Foster; Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell; Mulumbu, Yacob; Dorrans, Morrison, Brunt; Long

No Odemwingie in Albion's 18-man squad.. they line up...

Reina; Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Enrique; Downing, Gerrard, Lucas, Henderson; Shelvey; Suarez.

Liverpool line up is in....

Just waiting for the team news - with Odemwingie be back in the starting line up??? should he be in?
