West Bromwich Albion earned a first win at Anfield in 45 years on Sunday with a 1-0 victory over Liverpool that saw the hosts continue their recent poor league run.

Liverpool dominated the game and created enough chances to score a handful of goals, but instead it was Peter Odemwingie who netted the winner in the 75th minute to give West Brom manager Roy Hodgson a satisfying return to his former club.

His replacement at Liverpool, Kenny Dalglish, was left ruing his team's problems in front of goal after twice hitting the woodwork and wasting a slew of other opportunities.

Liverpool have won just one Premier League game at home in 2012 and scored only six goals in seven matches.
