Liverpool 0-0 West Brom
Liverpool could not unpick West Brom's defence during a frustrating stalemate at Anfield that left the Reds outside the top four.
Roberto Firmino screwed a side-foot finish narrowly wide before Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross eluded Mohamed Salah in the first half.
The Baggies came just as close before the interval, however, with Hal Robson-Kanu's measured curling shot from distance flicking the bar.
Liverpool pressed further forward in the second with Salah mis-timing a header with the net gaping.
Substitute Dominic Solanke, who added another attacking focal point off the bench for the hosts, had a goal disallowed for handball and a shot cleared off the line in the final 10 minutes as West Brom's defence remained unbreached.
It was a concerning familiar feeling at the full-time whistle for the Reds after Everton's rearguard action earned a point on Sunday, and Manchester United and Burnley deployed similar tactics with similar success earlier this season.
At the opposite end of the table, a hard-earned point takes Alan Pardew's side out of the bottom three.
