Goodbye

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

Forget scrapping in the shopping aisles for those Christmas presents, we've had our own afternoon of high drama at Anfield.

Liverpool nicked a point to move up to ninth, above their city rivals Everton, while Albion stay 13th.

Time for me to say goodbye but if you, like me, can't wait to hear what Pulis and Klopp have got to say after that humdinger then head over here for all the post-match reaction.

What you waiting for?! Get over there now.

Player reaction - Origi

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

Divock Origi looks proud as punch. Not surprising seeing as he's just bagged his first Premier League goal.

"I just kept on working and I'm happy to score," says the Belgian in the Anfield tunnel. 

"The coach said I had to do everything to bring something to team, I tried to go beyond defenders and shoot and I managed to get the goal.

"It was a difficult game because West Brom are a physical side. But we showed mental strength and got a point."

FULL-TIME

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

The Anfield Kop shows its appreciation to their heroes for continuing to push for the equaliser which, on the balance of play, they comfortably deserved. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp responds by ordering his players into a line to hold hands and salute the end behind the goal. They're celebrating like they've won the FA Cup!

FULL-TIME

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

Annnnnd breathe! All over at Anfield. What a game, what drama. Liverpool couldn't force a dramatic winner, Albion hang on for a point.

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

"Have it!" is what Peter Kay would say to Jonas Olsson whacking the ball about 60 yards upfield from the edge of his penalty area. Time is almost up for Liverpool...

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

"Attack, attack, attack!" shouts almost the whole of Anfield. Liverpool pressing, Albion hanging on...

Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

Time for a winner? Liverpool think so. Divock Origi races back to the centre circle with ball in hand and dumps it on the spot. The Baggies aren't rushing...

GOAL - Liverpool 2-2 West Brom

Divock Origi

Equaliser!!! Anfield erupts as Divock Origi's speculative 25-yard shot is deflected off a Baggies defender and past a stranded Boaz Myhill.

Gareth McAuley is the unlucky Albion man, while we must give credit to Origi for refusing to stay down when he was fouled before getting up to shoot.

SUBSTITUTION

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

That Tony Pulis is a wily old fox. The Baggies boss eats up some seconds by bringing Rickie Lambert on against his former club. Salomon Rondon - after an energy-sapping shift up front on his lonesome - is given a well-deserved break.

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Was this the moment? Roberto Firmino whips in a teasing cross from close to the left corner flag towards the far post. The menacing figure of Martin Skrtel is lurking but the shaven-headed Slovakian cannot guide the ball inside the near post. On we go...

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Liverpool are all huff and all puff. But they can't blow the West Brom house down.

INJURY TIME

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Right...here's the moment of truth. All eyes on the fourth official as he reveals how many minutes of stoppage time. There will be EIGHT additional minutes (after Dejan Lovren's injury) for Liverpool to nick at least a point.

Eight minutes added

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Another minute, another Liverpool effort. Substitute Jordon Ibe wriggles into space on the edge of the Baggies box, firing wide of the right-hand post.

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

More Liverpool groans. For the umpteenth time, a home shot goes straight at Boaz Myhill in the Albion goal. Jordan Henderson is the culprit. Time ticking...

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Game, set and match Baggies? Almost. Salomon Rondon has not had much company up top for the visitors, but suddenly sees a couple of striped shirts appear to set up a golden opportunity. But the Venezuelan drags a low shot wide. Nervy few minutes ahead...

SUBSTITUTION

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Last throw of the dice for Liverpool. Brazil attacker Roberto Firmino enters the action, Adam Lallana's goose is cooked.

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

More groans from the frustrated home fans. Plenty of Liverpool possession in the Baggies half but they can't find that penetrative pass. A lofted ball into the Albion box is gathered by Albion keeper Boaz Myhill. Time running out...

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

All Liverpool now. As it has been for most of the match to be fair. Don't expect much Albion attacking.

#bbcfootball My fellow Baggies fans are quick to criticise Pulis but yet again he's come up with the goods!

This smacks of the end of Rogers. Time to question the players yet? #bbcfootball #januarysales

Chance!

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

What a chance. Adam Lallana finds himself clean through from Christian Benteke's pass, steadies himself and tries to bend into the corner from a tight angle. But Boaz Myhill rushes out of the Albion goal to block with his legs.

SUBSTITUTION

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Generous applause for Dejan Lovren as he is taken off on a stretcher, Craig Gardner going over to apologise. No booking for the Baggies midfielder - much to the disgust of the home fans. Divock Origi comes on for Lovren as the Reds go for broke.

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Blood is pouring out Dejan Lovren's knee. The game is paused for a couple of minutes as the Liverpool defender is treated by several medics.

Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Oh no. This does not look good for Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren. The Croatian competes for a 50-50 with Craig Gardner - and comes off second best. Gardner takes the ball but also catches Lovren's knee with his studs on the follow through.

Easy peasy. Jonas Olsson (3) was allowed too much space to meet Chris Brunt's corner and the Baggies are ahead. Liverpool! You were warned before the game about Albion's height and aerial threat by Jurgen Klopp. But it has not been heeded.

GOAL - Liverpool 1-2 West Brom

Jonas Olsson

This time West Brom are not denied a second goal! And again it is Jonas Olsson. The long-haired Swede's height has been a constant menace to the Reds backline and he is allowed to climb highest to nod in Chris Brunt's corner.

SUBSTITUTION

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

Jurgen Klopp has a roll of the tactical dice - and he throws a pair of threes. That's because his number 33 Jordon Ibe is the man summoned, with Philippe Coutinho - still recovering from recent injury - hooked. Can he provide some spark? First he needs to help defend a corner....

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

Poor old Simon Mignolet. He's having a tough day at the office. Groans go up from the home fans as the Belgian opts to punch clear James McClean's left-wing cross rather than catch it. Bit harsh are those jeers I'd say.

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

Good spell of football from Albion. The Baggies string together 15 or so passes, but once the ball goes up to Salomon Rondon, he has little support and the move breaks down.

Just wish for once Pulis would prove me wrong and take a chance #bbcfootball

#bbcfootball The impact that man Henderson has had on LFC is incredible, goes about it quietly but subtly brilliant nearly every game.

Your team are still under the cosh, but coping reasonably well.

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

Panic over. Gareth McAuley gingerly limps to the touchline, has a dose of the magic sponge, then races back on to the pitch. West Brom back to their full complement.

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

Gareth McAuley might as well have just made a 'T' gesture with his hands to the referee. He needs a time out. Not sure exactly what has happened to the Baggies defender, but he looks like he is in pain. Tony Pulis is also wearing a painful expression - he doesn't want to bring the big centre-half off.

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

These Liverpool chances are arriving quicker than Transpennine Express trains at Lime Street station. Christian Benteke is latest culprit, scooping a half volley wide under pressure from the Baggies defence.

Shot number 16 of the afternoon for Liverpool. Again, Albion keeper Boaz Myhill squints into the sky to watch the ball whizz over his head. Jordan Henderson curses himself for missing the target.

Alex McDonald: Liverpool should have kept Pepe Reina he was a much better keeper.     

Mark, Wigan: Let's not get carried away about Mignolet. David de Gea threw it in his own net yesterday and he's considered a worldy!

Ben, Southampton: Forget Liverpool for a sec, I'm sure West brom have come back from 1-0 in at least their three previous games?

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

West Brom have - as Jurgen Klopp correctly predicted - caused heaps of bother for Liverpool at set pieces. Now it is the turn of Liverpool's big men to wreak some havoc. Dejan Lovren climbs highest to reach James Milner's cross - from an almost identical position to Albion's first-half injury-time 'goal' - but can't keep his header down.

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

As Alex Shillingford rightly points out below, West Brom are pretty toothless up front. And, as our graphic shows, the reason is that Salomon Rondon (number 33) is as isolated as a remote Pacific island.

Liverpool 1-1 West Brom

Thankfully for those Liverpool fans of a nervous disposition, the ball is deep in West Brom water. A right-wing cross is a touch high for Christian Benteke, before James Milner drags a shot from outside the area wide.
