Crooks slams Klopp's decision to sub Danny Ings in Liverpool draw

Crooks slams Klopp's decision to sub Danny Ings in Liverpool draw

Klopp insists that Liverpool always knew what they were getting, with there never any doubting the 25-year-old's ability, but he has exceeded all expectations.

"At the end he did right because he's doing some fantastic things in the Premier League, which is not the easiest league to play in". He was a real threat. We stay in the league, they don't stay in the league.

West Brom are still two points below 19th-placed Stoke and eight adrift of Swansea in 17th who have played two games fewer.

"It was a very nice game for him, for sure but a very hard one as well".

"I wasn't happy with the draw, because in my view Liverpool were the toughest team out of the three", Nainggolan told Belgian publication HLN (transcripts via Liverpool Echo).

Grobbelaar is confident Liverpool's current crop - inspired by 41-goal star Mohamed Salah - can emulate that 1984 success.Salah, who joined Liverpool from Roma a year ago, is the key man for Jurgen Klopp's team as they look to make their first Champions League final appearance since 2007 and win the competition for the first time since 2005. For West Brom's second, Rondon misplaced Roberto Firmino and was performed onside by Dejan Lovren, who had dropped deeper than his colleagues to attempt to rescue the state of affairs.

"It was not that hard, to be honest. So we can not change".

Roma pose a good blend of youth and experience, which some would say will benefit them.

"We had Trent and Joe through the whole season, then Trent and Clyney (Nathaniel Clyne)".

"It was clear that at one point Robbo can not play all the games". Ragnar (Klavan) was out for a while and Ingsy came on from time to time. "That's what we did".

The Egypt worldwide matched the record of 31 goals for a 38-game top-flight season set by Alan Shearer (1995-96), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007-08) and Luis Suarez (2013-14) with three matches still to spare with a clever chipped finish.

But Liverpool couldn't hold off the Baggies down the stretch. However, Jake Livermore and Salomon Rondon, in the 88th minute, snatched a 2-2 draw for the top-flight's bottom club. "Liverpool's game started to fall apart the moment the striker left the field". Then it happened, the first goal after a corner, it looked similar to our first goal.

"Yes we agree (on the penalty) and Hegazi on Ings, it is a red card", said Klopp.
