Liverpool 1 West Brom 0

Liverpool beat West Brom 1-0 this afternoon to secure their first league win of the season thanks to a second half goal from Fernando Torres.

The Spain international bagged his first goal of the season on 65 minutes volleying home a Dirk Kuyt cross to give Roy Hodgson his first three points as Liverpool manager.

Christian Poulsen started his first game of the season in place of Javier Mascherano who is set to join Barcelona, however, the Danish international struggled to make an impression on the game.

Liverpool were unconvincing throughout and were lucky not to find themselves behind when Gonzalo Jara almost caught out Pepe Reina but Torres scored the game’s only goal minutes later.

The match was watched by the Anfield club’s new signing Raul Meireles as well as Fulham left-back Paul Konchesky who is expected to join before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
