West Brom 1 Liverpool 1: All square at the Hawthorns as Reds eye Europa League final

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp fielded a weakened team, with a firm eye on Wednesday’s Europa League final against Sevilla.

His side came away from the Hawthorns with a point after Jordon Ibe cancelled out Solomon Rondon’s opener.

Klopp gave an indication of what his starting line-up will be in Basle against Sevilla by making 11 changes, with star performers such as Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, James Milner, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge not even on the bench.

A disjointed Liverpool team made a lacklustre start in the west Midlands and fell behind after 13 minutes.

Joe Allen, perhaps the only man on duty on Sunday with any hopes of being involved in the forthcoming European showpiece, did his slim chances little good by giving the ball away midway inside his own half to Jonathan Leko.
