Liverpool held by West Brom in race for fourth

Liverpool were unable to tighten their grip on fourth place after dropping two points against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon.

Daniel Sturridge had given Brendan Rodgers’ men a first half lead with his seventeenth goal of this season, though the Baggies were gifted the opportunity to equalise after a mistake from Kolo Toure.

Former Everton striker Victor Anichebe duly converted to give Pepe Mel’s men a share of the spoils, and deny the Reds a third straight victory.
The club will now turn their attention to Saturday’s visit of league leaders Arsenal, before traveling to bottom of the table Fulham four days later.

They then face Arsenal again on Saturday week in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Meanwhile, the club are set to offer Jordan Henderson a new contract, according to the Mail Online.

The England international has played all but twenty minutes of the Reds’ league campaign so far this season, scoring two goals.

The former Sunderland man, who moved to Anfield for £16m in the summer of 2011, will have two years on his current deal left to run at the end of this season, but he is set to be rewarded after becoming a vital part of his manager’s first team plans.
