Liverpool got Allardyce’d today. There’s no two ways about it. After a first half that was all one way traffic, topped off by a magnificently taken goal, Liverpool got undone by an unforced error leading to a set piece goal for West Brom. Sadio Mane was a menace the entire first half, and scored after displaying magnificent chest control before a trademark falling over shot. Andrew Robertson was his usual all action self, serving in deliciously whipped crosses across the front of goal. Jordan Henderson, ever the midfield general, dropped dimes from his holding role, and was close to scoring himself with a shot from distance. Alisson Becker didn’t have much to do in the first half, but showed up in a big way in the second half as the game got stretched.
