Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson scored as Liverpool registered their first Premier League win since August by grinding out a hard-fought 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Saturday. Lallana’s first Liverpool goal was cancelled out by a controversial Saido Berahino penalty before Henderson’s driven winner helped last season’s runners-up climb to seventh. “It was vital (we won). We needed to find a way to win today against a side that is really high on confidence,” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers told Sky Sports.

“An excellent result on the back of a disappointing European result. Their penalty was outside the box but the players showed their character and resilience to keep going and find a winner. It was an outstanding win for us.”

Papiss Cisse struck twice to ease the growing pressure on underfire Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew with a 2-2 draw against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. Steven Fletcher scored a brace as Sunderland beat Stoke City 3-1 to claim their first win of the season following five draws from their opening six games.

Goals by Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero earned champions Manchester City a 2-0 win at Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday, although they left it late.
