Rondon completes West Brom comeback to grab point against Liverpool

Salomon Rondon completed a remarkable West Bromwich Albion comeback from two goals down as Darren Moore’s battling side drew 2-2 with Liverpool on Saturday.

The result helped them to continue their desperate scrap for English Premier League survival.

The game appeared beyond West Brom after Danny Ings and Mo Salah gave the visitors a comfortable lead.

Ings scored after four minutes with his first English Premier League goal since October 2015 and Salah notched up his 31st of the season with a well-taken second-half goal.

But caretaker manager Moore has injected resilience into Albion and Jake Livermore gave them hope with a scrambled goal from a corner kick after 79 minutes.

As Liverpool struggled to hold on, Chris Brunt delivered a perfect free-kick into the area for Rondon to head home.

But the draw probably just delays the inevitable for bottom-of-the-table Albion who remain eight points off survival with three games to play.

There seemed to be a feeling of proud resignation at full-time, as the crowd applauded but were not celebratory and Rondon crouched to his knees.

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