Liverpool boss Klopp admits he was never comfortable at West Brom

It fell to Alberto Moreno, who had only just come off the bench, and with just one defender standing between him and West Brom's empty net, a second Liverpool goal looked a formality.

"We have to think that there are six finals from now until the end". But it was excitement until the end - pretty much always whenever we are involved. "I am really happy about the performance". It affected us for the first 20 minutes of the second half and that was the negative I spoke to them about afterwards.

"We will be good to finish on top of the table and it means we deserve this".

Pulis said: "We are disappointed".

"Not only the three points but a clean sheet also, we're very pleased with that", he told the club's official site.

Eight minutes later the Baggies went close when Phillips' cross from the right seemed destined to be volleyed home by Nacer Chadli, but Firmino got the slightest of touches to get it away to safety.

"We know Karius had a few dodgy games, then that change happened and it's been Mignolet ever since".

Liverpool have not been able to see out games in which there are not too many chances created and against opposition that is resilient at the back so last night will have been an encouraging sign for Jurgen Klopp.

Clearly thrilled with the result at a venue where Liverpool haven't had much luck in the past, Klopp said: "It is one of the most hard places to come because in no game can you feel comfortable".

"I can understand why".

"It's really three very important points at a hard place and that's improved our base for the rest of the season".

Roberto Firmino, back in the starting line-up after being rested against Stoke last week, headed Liverpool to victory with a goal just before the half-time break.

This was the first time that Liverpool had won at The Hawthorns in ages, and Tony Pulis's first loss against Liverpool in a home game, since he got promoted with Stoke City in the 2008-09 season.

The Baggies now occupy eighth position in the Premier League table and are likely to finish in the top-half in the club's first season under new Chinese owner Guochuan Lai.

The Brazilian converted a flick-on from Lucas Leiva to seal a fifth win in their last seven games for Liverpool.

"We've had three really good opportunities where I would have expected them to score but you can't criticise them".
