Reds hang on as Firmino nets victor again

Manchester City outcast set to sign for Liverpool in £20M deal

Manchester City outcast set to sign for Liverpool in £20M deal

The 29-year-old goalkeeper made a key second-half save from West Bromwich Albion's Matt Phillips as Liverpool emerged victorious at The Hawthorns on Sunday thanks to Roberto Firmino's victor.

- Since the start of last season, Firmino has been directly involved in 34 Premier League goals (21 goals, 13 assists), more than any other Liverpool player.

Jurgen Klopp said he was "really pleased" with Liverpool's performance after they won 1-0 at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

Roberto Firmino scored the only goal of the game at the end of the first half at the Hawthorns.

The win is even more freakish when you consider the fact that Liverpool scored from a set piece. There was a sense of irony that West Brom ended up getting undone in that department.

Just before the break, Firmino would make it 1-0 after James Milner's free kick from the right was flicked on by Lucas Leiva and he headed home. "Today we could only get to 66 points, so it feels ideal".

Simon Mignolet, who produced a couple of outstanding saves at the bet365 Stadium, made another vital intervention by denying Matt Phillips as the winger broke through on goal with 10 minutes remaining.

Rangers aim to locate missing offense vs. Canadiens
What the Canadiens haven't seen is Pacioretty at his best in this Eastern Conference first round series , a fact he acknowledged. Alex Galchenyuk of the Canadiens, tied up by the Rangers' Kevin Hayes , lunges for a loose puck in Sunday's Game 3 at MSG.

Several times in the dying minutes Mignolet resorted to punching clear high West Brom set-pieces or deliveries.

Late on, Alberto Moreno missed an empty goal from 40 yards after Albion keeper Ben Foster had gone up for a corner.

The 24-year-old Brazil global has scored nine goals and tallied six assists to help Liverpool up to fourth position in the Premier League this season.

"I thought it was a very special game for Divock Origi today".

Despite the miss, Liverpool have now come away from two awkward trips to Stoke and West Brom with six points, putting further pressure on Man City, Man United, Arsenal and Everton to keep up with the season beginning to wind down. West Brom manager Tony Pulis: "We've had the opportunities again and especially against the top teams you have to take your chances".

Pulis' men would go no closer to getting on terms - the Arsenal win before last month's worldwide break standing as the only game in the last seven where they have found the net.
