Pascal Gross calmly fires in from 12-yards.

Pascal Gross was coolness personified after he fired in an injury-time equaliser against Liverpool from the penalty spot to secure a 1-1 draw for Albion at the Amex.

The midfielder confidently converted after Andy Robertson kicked Danny Welbeck in added time.

“It's not easy, but I just trusted my technique and quality at that moment and I am very pleased that we got the point.

Albion celebrate their late equaliser against the Reds.

“We did alright. Liverpool are a great team and they're always hard to play against but I had a feeling we were going to have chances and our moments, as Liverpool did as well. We deserved the result in the end.”

The decision to award the penalty came after Stuart Attwell had watched Robertson's challenge back on the pitch-side monitor. The visitors had two goals ruled out by VAR for offside.

“Sometimes it's like that. Some days it goes your way, sometimes it goes against you. That's how it is and you have to handle it. It's not always like that - against Manchester United at home we had a penalty go against us in the 98th minute.

“When we use VAR well, it's a good thing. If you're 1-0 down as we were today and there's an offside goal it's a totally different game if it's not given.”
