Liverpool 3-0 West Brom Highlights
Robbie Keane scored his first Premier League goals for Liverpool as they beat West Brom to go three points clear of Chelsea at the top of the table.
A combination of Scott Carson’s body and Jonas Olsson’s arm prevented Yossi Benayoun’s shot opening the scoring.
But there was no stopping Keane when he latched on to Steven Gerrard’s pass before clipping the ball over Carson.
Keane scored his second goal when he rounded Carson and slotted home before Alvaro Arbeloa curled in a late third.
Keane will be delighted to get off the mark in the league, following his £20m summer move from Tottenham.
And the Republic of Ireland international took his goals well as Liverpool made sure there would be no repeat of the collapse that saw them lose a lead and fall to defeat at Spurs a week ago.
It helped that this time they were up against a team in West Brom who have not won at Anfield for 41 years.
Once Liverpool went ahead, it never looked as though the visitors would bring an end to that poor run.
