Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke has expressed his displeasure regarding his disallowed goal in the barren encounter between the reds and Westbrom at Anfield on Wednesday night.
Seven minutes from time in the goalless draw at home to West Brom the England Under-20 World Cup winner had the ball in the net at the Kop end only for it to be disallowed after referee Paul Tierney, having initially pointed to the centre circle, chalked it off following consultation with his assistant.
The linesman had spotted the ball had gone in off the youngster’s arm, capping a frustrating night which saw Liverpool drop two points at home for the second time in four days, meaning they could not regain their top-four spot.
“It went onto my chest, I tried to chest it in and it has clipped my arm. The referee disallowed it but it’s very unlucky,” he said.
“I thought he had given it as well. I was celebrating. I don’t know what changed his mind but he changed his mind.
“I thought I had won it; it’s not nice when you are celebrating and it gets disallowed.
“It was annoying but hopefully I will get a goal soon and carry on from there.”
Alan Pardew’s men ensured the game was tailored their way and saw it through as a barren encounter, frustrating Liverpool to a point. Liverpool have won only one of three premier league games this December.
