Liverpool’s win over West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday was not one for the neutrals. Roberto Firmino’s winner after 46 minutes was the only goal of the afternoon and just one of four shots on target as Jurgen Klopp’s side pulled themselves over the line in a cagey affair.
But there’s no need for Liverpool fans to focus on the negatives. The Reds are now third in the table after chalking up another three points and although it was hardly a stellar display from them in the Midlands, the eighth-placed Baggies have undoubtedly been the best of the rest in the Premier League this season – nowhere near the top seven yet head and shoulders above the rest of the mid-tablers.
It was a tense and unspectacular display from Liverpool but there were still some heroes of the hour, not least including goalscorer Firmino and centre-back signing Joel Matip, who helped the Reds to an uncharacteristic clean sheet away from home.
So, which of those two deserves the Man of the Match award, or should it go to another Liverpool star? Let us know by voting below!
