Liverpool let a two goal lead slip as West Brom produced a spirited comeback to draw 2-2 at The Hawthorns.
Jurgen Klopp decided to rest a number of the teams’ stars, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino and Andrew Robertson all being left out of the side.
That presented opportunities for a number of fringe players to make their mark, with Danny Ings, Alberto Moreno and Ragnar Klavan given a place in the starting XI.
And it was one of those that made their mark: Danny Ings.
The striker has endured an injury nightmare in recent years, with limited playing time meaning he had not scored since 2015.
But he hit the back of the net just four minutes into the game, ending a run of 930 days without a goal.
Salah would extend Liverpool’s lead in the second half, but late goals from Jake Livermore and Salomon Rondon meant the two sides shared the spoils.
ALBERTO MORENO HAD LIVERPOOL FANS TALKING
Whereas Ings took his chance, it can be said that Moreno did not.
The Spaniard has found playing time limited since losing his place in the side to Andrew Robertson.
He was given a start against West Brom: the first time he had made the first eleven for Liverpool in the league since November.
Liverpool fans have criticised him for his lack of defensive awareness in the past, and that was no different against West Brom.
Moreno was all over the place; particularly in the first half.
His play did not directly lead to a goal for the home side, but that did not stop Liverpool fans taking to Twitter to vent their frustrations with the Spaniard.
Many noticed how much better Robertson is than Moreno, with this performance confirming that fact.
And many others want Moreno sold in the summer as a result.
When I watch Moreno play it makes me so thankful to have Robertson.

Watching Moreno again makes you appreciate even more what Robertson has brought to this team…

Gulf in quality between Robertson & Moreno is huge
