West Bromwich: Liverpool's slim Champions League hopes suffered a huge blow as they were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw at West Brom.
The Reds are fifth in the English Premier League but only moved six points behind Manchester City before the champions' home game with Aston Villa.
Jordon Ibe hit the bar for the visitors and Boaz Myhill saved from Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson.
But they were left to rue a pedestrian performance with little goal threat from Mario Balotelli, who was hauled off in the second half.
Meanwhile, Tottenham twice came from behind to secure a 2-2 draw against Southampton.
Graziano Pelle twice put Southampton ahead, only for Spurs to level through Erik Lamela and then Nacer Chadli.
