Loris Karius – 7
Made a few important saves at the beginning of the second-half when West Brom came at Liverpool more – overall distribution was good even though it wasn’t that pacey.
Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6
Produced one or two good crosses towards Salah but nothing came from them – faded in the second-half, with his touches becoming sloppy, was taken off for Gomez.
Ragnar Klavan – 7
Aided his defensive partner well in dealing with Rondon and he made a number of important interventions and tackles.
Dejan Lovren – 6
One of the few contested battles on the pitch was the one between Lovren and Rondon, which the Liverpool defender won on the whole – also set up a few good attacking opportunities.
Andrew Robertson – 5
Didn’t quite click with Coutinho on the left-side – never really offered the width that could have stretched the West Brom defence.
Georginio Wijnaldum – 5
Was reluctant to shoot on a number of occasions instead opting to play another pass that often brought the attack to an end – didn’t move with the fluidity that he normally does in central midfield.
Emre Can – 5
Was clunky and careless in midfield, often giving away the ball along with needless fouls.
Philippe Coutinho – 6
Tried but it never came off – possibly to much of a creative burden on his shoulders, the congested final third offered him little room to operate.
Mohamed Salah – 5
For once what Salah touched didn’t turn to gold – his touch often let him down leading to him being dispossessed six times in total.
Sadio Mane – 4
A well below-par performance in which he appeared rusty and lacking in confidence – has already had a few sub-optimal displays this season but this one was the poorest.
Roberto Firmino – 5
Missed the best chance of the match when he skewed his left-footed shot across the face of the goal – his control and composure when it really counted in the final third lacked quality.
Ben Foster – 7
Had to make a few vital saves to keep his side level – flapped at a couple of crosses and it was his time-wasting that meant we only got what felt like an hour of football.
Allan Nyom – 7
Produced a solid and determined effort – rarely let the Liverpool attackers beat him.
Ahmed Hegazi – 8
Was vitally important in the air, heading away numerous dangerous deliveries – also cleared one off the line late on.
Jonny Evans – 7
Led the West Brom backline and was calm and composed in possession – didn’t let the big names of Liverpool get the better of him.
Kieran Gibbs – 6
Remained inside a 5-metre square for much of the match – never attacked nor moved into the centre, just cleared away what he had to.
Jake Livermore – 6
His strength was important in the midfield area – made some important blocks but was wasteful in possession at times.
Claudio Yacob – 7
Had West Brom’s best chances, a header over the bar in the first-half and forced Karius into a save in the second.
Grzegorz Krychowiak – 6
Never allowed Liverpool too much time on the ball and battled hard – almost caught Karius out with an inswinging free-kick.
Hal Robson-Kanu – 6
Hit a shot against the crossbar in the first-half but apart from that never really tested the Liverpool defence – he was deployed more as the first line of defence rather than attack.
James McClean – 6
Was quite quiet on the left-side and offered very little in terms of attack – just played his role in the defensive 5-4-1 formation.
Salomon Rondon – 7
Was often cut adrift from the rest of his team due to the deep defending but when he did receive the ball he controlled and held it up well.
