The Reds were shut down this past Monday by Jose Mourinho’s pack in the box tactic however when West Brom tried the result was 2-1 Liverpool win.
Man U under Jose Mourinho shut down the high flying Liverpool attack with a swarming “D”. When West Brom tried it the Reds scored two first half goals only to be shut down in the second half. Albion made it close with a late goal in the 82nd minute by Gareth McAuley in the 82nd minute.
It was a dominant performance by Jurgen Klopp’s men who might have won by heavier margin had Ben Foster not been at his best, but they were given food for thought by Gareth McAuley’s late header.
Liverpool took the lead 20 minutes in with a wonderful sweeping move instigated by a clever dummy from Coutinho and finished by Sadio Mane from Roberto Firmino’s whose cross.
Coutinho doubled his side’s lead 10 minutes before the interval when he received Mane’s pass, sold another dummy and beat Foster with a low shot at his near post.
West Brom struck on 81 minutes when McAuley pounced on a loose ball from a corner and scored. That goal denied Liverpool going above Arsenal and top on goals scored.
