Struggling West Bromwich Albion on Sunday held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Anfield. 

Sadio Mane gave the champions an early lead at Anfield, scoring a superb goal 12 minutes into the game as the home team dominated the game. 

West Brom’s new manager, who has never led a team into relegation pulled off a tactical masterclass to nullify Liverpool’s attacking prowess.

His set up yielded results as Semi Ajayi’s header gave the visitors an equalizer 10 minutes to the end of the game. 

West Bromwich Albion is 19th on the league table with 8 points from 15 matches, Liverpool still top the league table with 32 points having played 15 games, won 9, drew 5 and lost just one match.
