West Brom 1-2 Liverpool, Player Ratings: Goalkeeper Alisson scores WINNER in dramatic finish

The Brazilian shot-stopper glanced home an absolutely vital goal in the Reds' race for the Champions League

Liverpool's Champions League top-four chances were salvaged in injury time as goalkeeper Alisson glanced home the winning goal against West Brom.

But who were the best performers on the day?

  • What can you say. It's rare for a goalkeeper to even head into the penalty area these days, let alone score the winner.

    But Alisson achieved it, drifting up virtually unmarked to flick home a brilliant header to settle the match and leave his side well within reach of the top four positions. Incredible!

  • Pereira might be going down with WBA but you have to wonder if it's likely he'll stay there.

    He has been one of their shining lights in this Premier League season and once again it was his probing despite not having too much of the ball that gave his team opportunities.

    He only completed 14 passes throughout but provided an assist and a Big Chance for other team-mates while completing two dribbles. He deserves to remain at this level.

  • Mo Salah was, once again, the only attacking player from a Liverpool perspective that even looked like scoring and that will be a real concern for Jurgen Klopp, despite securing the win.

    The Egyptian converted slickly from a Sadio Mane assist and on two other occasions it was his attacking play which opened up WBA only for poor finishing from team-mates to let the team down.

    Salah is in a race with Harry Kane for the Golden Boot, but he was a little let down by the profligacy of his team-mates here, even though the win came late.

    Liverpool's player on the day who appeared capable of opening up the opposition with every attack, Thiago gave Liverpool fans an insight into what he could achieve in a fully fit season and with the right midfield structure.

    The former Barcelona and Bayern midfielder orchestrated proceedings both deep and in more penetrative areas. No-one touched the ball more nor completed more passes.

    But his defensive play was also on show, winning 6/9 duels as well as 2/3 tackles and 2/3 defensive duels. Couples with six recoveries, he was easily the most active player on the pitch for the Reds.
