London: Adam Lallana opened his Liverpool account in style as Brendan Rodgers' side claimed a first win in four Premier League games by edging West Bromwich Albion 2-1 on Saturday.

Lallana scored his first Liverpool goal since signing from Southampton on the stroke of half-time at Anfield after a darting run and a neat exchange with Jordan Henderson.

Saido Berahino equalised from the penalty spot in the 56th minute, but Raheem Sterling teed up Henderson for what proved to be the decisive goal.

"It was very satisfying. We had to show big character today. West Brom were arriving here on the back of a number of good results," said Liverpool manager Rodgers.

"I thought the resilience of the players was fantastic and we were helped by the crowd, because they realised the team needed a lift. It was a big win for us."
