Daniel Sturridge was named on the bench against West Brom – and the Liverpool supporters were pleased with the decision on Twitter.
The England forward has been dropped from the starting XI after failing to impress in the club’s last match against Manchester Untied.
Jurgen Klopp has made just one change to his side with Adam Lallana replacing Sturridge in the side.
Liverpool announced their line-up on their official Twitter account.

Sturridge back on the bench 150% confirms he's not a kilo player and he's gone by next summer imo love the lad but doesn't fit the mould

Sturridge has made nine appearances this season and his only goals came against Burton in the EFL Cup.
His search for a first Premier League goal this campaign continues and Roberto Firmino has been the preferred option in attack.
The England striker does have a great record since he moved to Anfield, scoring 56 goals in 101 appearances for the club.
Klopp has introduced a high intensity and attacking press to his side and many people feel that Sturridge is not suited to the system.
In other Liverpool team news, this 20-year-old has a bright future at the club according to Klopp.
