Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has criticised West Bromwich Albion for not watering their pitch at half time in their Premier League encounter at The Hawthorns on Saturday.
The Reds led 2-0 at a point in the game courtesy of goals by Danny Ings and Mohamed Salah.
However, two goals in the last 11 minutes of the game from Jake Livermore and Salomon Rondon earned the struggling baggies a 2-2 draw.
A visibly disappointed Klopp was left bemused at how the hosts let the pitch become drier as the game went on.
“We controlled it pretty well, their only opportunity was with set pieces, the rest we defended really well,” the German stated after the game.
“The whole game was a plot on the goalkeeper, everyone loves it in this country, but it makes life difficult for the goalie.
“It was a difficult game as the pitch got drier and drier. West Brom decided not to water the pitch at half time and that makes it difficult.
“It makes a massive difference. A team like West Brom do not need a wet pitch, they can do it next year playing on a dry pitch in the Championship.”
Liverpool remain third in the table following the draw, three points ahead of fourth-placed Tottenham.
