Liverpool hopes after 2-0 win over West Bromwich
Indeed, Fowler’s sixth minute opener, followed by Djibril Cisse’s goal seven minutes before half-time, deepened the Baggies’ relegation worries and moved Liverpool to within five points of second-placed Manchester United.
With the matches running out, Liverpool FC face a tough task catching in-form United, but Fowler refused to concede defeat in the battle for the runners-up spot.
“We must worry about ourselves and try to win as many games as we can, but we know it is going to be difficult. If we win our games and the squads above us slip up, then we can take advantage,” said Fowler, now in his second spell with his hometown club.
“Anyway, this was an important wictory for us. We had a good result against Everton last week and we knew we had to do the job here. We made a good start, scored the early goal and deserved the three points at the end of the match.”
