Roma boss, Eusebio Di Franceso, is relying on the Egyptian winger's previous spell at the Stadio Olimpico as an advantage against his side's upcoming Champions League semifinal cup tie against Liverpool. He was a real threat. Less influential in the second half but did find himself in some risky situations in the penalty area that he couldn't capitalise on.
No one could begrudge him his moment in the Black Country sunshine after he tore a cruciate knee ligament in Klopp's first training session at the club, just days after winning his solitary England cap against Lithuania, and suffered another injury to his other knee just over a year later.
Thirty-four years on, Jurgen Klopp's squad can edge closer to making their own history by completing their own Italian job in the two-legged Champions League semi-final against Roma.
He also accused West Brom of deliberately not watering the pitch in order to hamper Liverpool's passing game and suggested it is a tactic they are preparing to use next season, when they will likely be in the Championship.
"It was not that hard, to be honest". We can't change that.
"They are all happy now, we are not happy".
"We had Trent and Joe through the whole season, then Trent and Clyney (Nathaniel Clyne). It was a way of relaxing a little bit", added the 63-year-old. The Eagles are now 15th, six points clear of the relegation zone with three games left. Ragnar (Klavan) was out for a while and Ingsy came on from time to time. We need to switch on again and do the same things that we always did.
Ings scored after four minutes with his first English Premier League goal since October 2015 and Salah notched up his 31st of the season with a well-taken second-half goal.
However, Liverpool were unable to hold onto the lead. Somewhat unlucky on West Brom's first goal when he made a good save only for Jake Livermore to pounce on the rebound, and had no chance with Salomon Rondon's equaliser. "We need to keep doing what we did in the last games and recover now and focus on Roma now from Monday".
Albion, fresh from their surprise victory at Manchester United last weekend, grew into the game and Rodriguez came close to converting a James McClean cross before the interval, foreshadowing the late comeback that gave Liverpool a shock before their European adventure. Then it happened, the first goal after a corner, it looked similar to our first goal.
