West Brom stun Liverpool 2-0 after Gerrard misses penalty
LONDON (REUTERS) - West Bromwich Albion completed a stunning Premier League double over Liverpool on Monday with a 2-0 win at Anfield after Steven Gerrard missed a chance to put the home side ahead with a second-half penalty.
Gareth McAuley headed home in the 80th minute, with what was only the Baggies' second attempt on goal in a lop-sided game, to break the deadlock and substitute Romelu Lukaku doubled the tally 10 minutes later.
The victory marked a dream return to Anfield for manager Steve Clarke, the former Liverpool assistant coach, after his side beat Liverpool 3-0 in the opening game of the season.
The visitors leapfrogged Liverpool to take eighth place on 37 points, behind Swansea City on goal difference. Liverpool have 36.
