  • West Brom dent Liverpool's Champions League challenge

    Liverpool's remote chance of staying in the hunt for Champions League qualification suffered a setback after a 0-0 draw at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday dented their hopes of a top-four finish. Stalemate at the Hawthorns left Liverpool seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United, who play Everton on Sunday, after reigning champions Manchester City climbed into second position with a 3-2 win at home to Aston Villa in Saturday's late match. Liverpool were looking to bounce back from the disappointment of their FA Cup semi-final defeat by Villa, but they squandered the chances to celebrate Steven Gerrard’s 500th Premier League appearance with a much-needed victory.
