NEIL Atkinson, Sean Rogers and Ian Salmon take an in-depth second look at Liverpool’s final Premier League game of the season against West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Jürgen Klopp’s desire to keep his strongest 11 fresh and focused for Wednesday’s Europa League final was well known before a ball was kicked, but did the boss spring any surprises with his selection on the day?

It was a chance to shine for the shadow side, but was this the game to stake a claim against a tight and compact Tony Pulis side?

Cameron Brannagan and Kevin Stewart found it difficult to move forward in the game, as the stats prove — was the shape of the side right on the day? What could Klopp have done different?

Who impressed, and how did the more senior of those involved – Joe Allen, Christian Benteke, Lucas Leiva, Martin Skrtel, Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan – perform?

Danny Ings made a welcome return but isn’t in the Europa League squad but what about Henderson now? Could the captain start in Basel?

How will Klopp set up in Switzerland and is the side likely to be the one we all expect it to be?

All this and more on this week’s pre-final Tuesday Review.
