Liverpool 2-1 West Brom Highlights
Adam Lallana scored his first Premier League goal for Liverpool to help his team to a first league win since August in a nervy display against West Brom.
Lallana combined beautifully with Jordan Henderson to beat Ben Foster at the far post seconds before the break.
Liverpool’s defending was far from convincing and Dejan Lovren conceded a controversial penalty to allow Saido Berahino to level from the spot.
But much to the hosts’ relief, Jordan Henderson struck five minutes later.
Raheem Sterling, circled by a trio of West Brom defenders, found Henderson and the England midfielder threaded the ball low into the far post to secure Liverpool a first league win since their 3-0 demolition of Tottenham in late August.
