West Brom hold Liverpool 2-2

The point means the Baggies' grip on their eight-year Premier League stay would continue unless Crystal Palace could earn at least a draw at Watford later in the day and Swansea beat champions Manchester City on Sunday.

The game appeared beyond West Brom after Danny Ings and Mo Salah gave the visitors a comfortable lead. Firstly, the Englishman was brought down off the ball by Craig Dawson in what seemed a stonewall penalty.

Officials also missed a punch by Ahmed Megazi on the former-Burnley striker - a challenge that nearly certainly would've seen red for the defender, thereby marking the end of his season. There was no unanimous decision meaning there will be no further action.

But hey, thinking you're right is just as good as statistics, isn't it? Was it a penalty?

Klopp did not hold back following the match and let his feelings know in his post-match interview. And the situation with Hegazi and Ings, I do not know... But you see it, I see it, that's not important. It is only important what three or four gentleman with a whistle say about it. We can't change that.

"I think everybody would agree the atmosphere in here has been superb".

And the club, who knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup in the fourth round in January, equalised in the 88th minute after Rondon scored from a diving header directly from a free kick by Brunt.

"Second goal was no foul".

Virgil van Dijk insists there is no need to panic after dropping points to West Brom (Peter Byrne/PA).

When asked to explain his frustrations with the surface, he replied: "I was not happy with the pitch".

"You could see that especially for the big chance for Danny Ings. It makes it more hard". It's also unsafe for injuries if the pitch is really dry.

"You have to tell each other the truth, you can not be nice and happy when we want to achieve so much as a team and a club", said Van Dijk.

The Egyptian winger scored his 41st goal of the season - his 31st in the Premier League, making him the joint-all-time top goalscorer in a 38-game season - but it was his team-mate Ings who took more of the attention.
