MetiNews.Com - Liverpool equalised at the Hawthorns through Mohamed Salah but there was a touch of fortune about the goal
Breaking News ! Graeme Souness has insisted Liverpool were lucky to be allowed their equaliser against West Brom after a mistake from referee Mike Dean. The Reds trailed 1-0 at the Hawthorns after an early goal from Hal Robson-Kanu, who took advantage of some poor defending to put the already-relegated Baggies ahead. Liverpool hit back with an equaliser from Mohamed Salah, with a first-time shot from the edge of the area after the ball rebounded his way following good persistence from Sadio Mane. However, replays showed that in the build-up to the goal, Liverpool were wrongly awarded a free-kick after Dean accidentally was involved in the play.

"Sam (Allardyce) will be fuming. He has to be, that goals shouldn't happen that way, I don't know what the referee is thinking. "That should be a drop ball and it should have been contested between two players." It remained 1-1 at half time in the game at the Hawthorns.
