West Brom knocks Liverpool out of FA Cup

Published

Liverpool crashed out of the FA Cup in the fourth round for the third consecutive year after falling 3-2 to West Brom at Anfield on Saturday.

 

Roberto Firmino scored the opener but later missed a penalty, and West Brom quickly responded as Jay Rodriguez scored twice and contributed to a third that went down as a Joel Matip own goal.

And though Mohamed Salah drew a goal back in the second half, the Baggies held firm to advance to the round of 16.

Liverpool were in front inside five minutes when Salah was denied by Ben Foster, but the ball came out to Firmino, who lofted a lob into the net with a fine finish.

But scarcely a minute later, West Brom were leve when Rodriguez thumped home an equaliser from the top of the box.

And four minutes later Rodriguez had his second by turning in a Chris Brunt cross.
