West Brom 0-2 Liverpool

In Liverpool’s last two visits to the Hawthorns, they’ve scored a total of eleven goals without reply. In their last visit to the vicinity, they beat Birmingham 7-0. Unfortunately, the free-scoring wasn’t too continue, but Liverpool easily dominated the first half and ran out quite comfortable 2-0 winners.

Cisse was particularly impressive in the first half, creating the first goal and scoring the second, and it’s good to see him utilising his pace and some somewhat better awareness and touch than we’ve usually seen – even if he was a little wasteful in the second half, when WBA gave us more of a game.

It’s looking very unlikely that we’ll finish above or below third now, so over our remaining five games I’d quite like to see some youngsters like Barragan and Anderson given the chance to make some substitute appearances to get them acquainted with the Premiership. Both of them made the (seven man) bench against Benfica, so I guess we’ll see if Benitez feels they’re ready for some first team action. Then again, they are only 17, and do have a FA Youth Cup final coming up…
