VAR in the spotlight in Liverpool's FA Cup loss to West Brom

Jurgen Klopp has made three changes to his Liverpool starting lineup for Saturday night's FA Cup fourth-round clash at home to West Brom.

In between, Liverpool were awarded a penalty after a prolonged VAR review, only for Roberto Firmino's spot-kick to come back off the crossbar.

It is the second loss in a row for Klopp's side and the Liverpool manager was visibly down in his post-match interview. That's not how defending should be.

"We didn't use the chance on the penalty and then their third goal must be offside". What can you do?

A buoyant West Brom threatened again early in the second half and Dawson once more nodded a loose ball into the net following a set-piece, although the officials rightly ruled it out for offside despite chants of "VAR, VAR" from the nearby visiting fans.

Allen, Mayfield audition well for Broncos
You look at the successful organizations, and they've figured that out. The interception over the middle, I got just a little too much on it.

Jay Rodriguez scored twice in the next ten minutes of the match, putting the Baggies in front, and an own goal from Joel Matip just before the break had Klopp's side trailing by two at half-time. We chased the game and maybe scored the second goal too late.

The Reds got the game off to the best possible start when a defensive mix-up gifted them a fifth minute opener.

'They tried to save some time - which was normal - and in the end, West Brom deserve it because they scored three goals and we only scored two. They did well and fought with passion. "But we only have ourselves to blame".

Despite Virgil Van Dijk's record signing, Liverpool continue to look weak in defence.

The Reds return to Anfield after a disappointing defeat on the road last time out, with victory over Alan Pardew's flu-stricken Baggies the ideal tonic to their loss at Swansea.
