Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said his side could not complain after failing to unpick a stubborn West Brom’s defence in a frustrating stalemate at Anfield.
“That was not our best game tonight but I think we had enough chances to win,” said the German.
“We didn’t use them and we have to accept the result.”
Roberto Firmino screwed a side-foot finish narrowly wide before Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross eluded Mohamed Salah in the first half.
The Baggies came just as close before the interval, however, with Hal Robson-Kanu’s measured curling shot from distance flicking the bar.
Liverpool pressed further forward in the second with Salah mis-timing a header with the net gaping.
Substitute Dominic Solanke, who added another attacking focal point off the bench for the hosts, had a goal disallowed for handball and a shot cleared off the line in the final 10 minutes as West Brom’s defence remained unbreached.
