So a comfortable 2-0 win in the end, despite not playing at our best, which was understandable given that we can’t now win the League.
A Steven Gerrard opener settled the team down into the familiar possession and good passing that is the hallmark of this Liverpool team.
West Bromwich Albion were fighting for their Premiership lives so they gave it everything they had without really troubling the Reds a great deal.
A second goal after half-time by Dirk Kuyt was the highlight of the match, taking on the home defence before unleashing an unstoppable shot in the bottom right-hand corner of Irishman Dean Kiely’s goal.
Thereafter it was keep ball for the most part by Rafa’s men, although the home team had a goal rightly ruled out for offside, they always looked second best.
An amazing outburst by Jamie Carragher on Arbeloa late on for some poor marking almost came to blows only for Xabi Alonso to step in and diffuse the situation, guess Jamie’s high standards are not being met by some in the side.
Next up Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield, I really want to win that won especially as they have beaten us twice this season.
We need to play alot better than we did today and I just hope Robbie Keane doesn’t score!
