Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers thought the scoreline was a bit harsh - the sending off iffy and the two penalties (one of which West Brom missed) a bit soft. And on any other day, Suarez would have put at least one of his chances away.
Liverpool fans will be frustrated that Stevie Gerrard wasn't played further forward, and would have expected a little more from new signing Joe Allen, who did OK but was nothing special on his debut.
Former Liverpool legend Phil Thompson told his Sky pundits earlier Saturday that Liverpool would fall just short of a top 4 slot this season. On this performance, even improvement on last season's 8th will be a big ask.
