Three minutes added on
88'—GOOD SAVE! Suarez winds his way into space and drills in a low shot, which Myhill gets down to make a fine save from. That's his last contribution, too.
Liverpool sub: Luis Suarez off, Luis Alberto on
Liverpool sub: Steven Gerrard gets a rousing standing ovation as he is replaced by Joe Allen
85'—Great save from Mignolet! Morrison fires in a close-range shot on the run and the Belgian keeper reacts to palm it over the bar.
82'—OFF THE BAR! Gerrard fizzes over a low cross toward Suarez, he sees it half cut-out but still reacts to attempt a bicycle kick—which cracks back off the crossbar. So unlucky.
81'—Billy Jones embarks on a run to take on four Liverpool defenders, but sees his shot eventually blocked at close quarters. Some really promising, positive approach play from West Brom at times today.
79'—Liverpool finishing strongly as the crowd urge them to continue the attacks. Kelly is finding space down the right side, but his lack of game time is showing in his touch and execution.
Wow, well, if Suarez has shown his magnificent ability and impudence, Sturridge here shows wonderful vision and execution; he turns with the ball 25 yards out, holds off the defender and dinks the ball over Myhill and into the far top corner. What a terrific strike.

Daniel Sturridge, 76 mins
75'—Ridgewell and Anichebe work the ball down the left and Brunt has a shot on the turn in the box. It's over the bar, but it's more pressure from the away side as they seek a late and unlikely way back into the game.
72'—Olsson is booked for a late trip on Sturridge.
West Brom subs: Brunt and Long on for Anelka and Yacob
70'—Into the final 20 then, with the Reds still two goals to the good. Have West Brom got another goal in them?
Morrison sends Mignolet the wrong way, spanking his penalty into the top corner to make it 3-1 with 24 minutes remaining. Nobody still appears to know exactly what the penalty was given for.

James Morrison, 65 mins, penalty
The referee watched Jones go to ground under the challenge of Lucas, was happy to let play go on, but the assistant flags for a penalty! That's a poor flag, was nothing in it.
Penalty to West Brom!
63'—Big chance for West Brom to get back into it. A free kick isn't dealt with and Macauley has a free shot from eight yards out on the turn, but sends his shot over Mignolet's bar.
61'—Liverpool sub: Martin Kelly on for Glen Johnson
58'—OFF THE BAR! Sturridge has seen his strike partner score three and wants one for himself. He drives at the penalty area before letting loose from 20 yards, beating Myhill and thundering the ball against the bar. So close.
57'—Almost four! Johnson bursts down the right channel, crosses low and Sturridge gets onto it—but fires over the bar.
Gerrard fires that free kick across and Suarez gets up in front of everyone to glance a fantastic header into the far corner of the net, for his first Anfield hat-trick and his fourth for Liverpool overall. 3-0 to the Reds!
