Down two goals with just over 10 minutes to play and staring relegation in the face, West Bromwich Albion rose to the occasion with two late strikes to earn a dramatic 2-2 draw with Liverpool.
Scenes at the Hawthorns. The match started the way one would expect, with Liverpool's attack striking for an early goal. It would take until 35 minutes in for a chance at an equalizer but one chance to catch Loris Karius out of position was not converted and another attempt by Jay Rodriguez moments later missed the mark. The second half appeared to get no better for the home side. Craig Dawson was lucky to avoid a foul that would have given the Reds a penalty, then the Baggies were 0-2 down with a quarter hour to go. That's when hard work began to pay off. Jake Livermore grabbed his first goal of the campaign, following up a Dawson shot from a corner to pull one back. Then, with only a minute to go plus stoppage time, Chris Brunt whipped in a corner and Salomon Rondon was there at the near post to finish a power header. West Brom will likely escape the weekend still in contention to survive, but they need wins now. Apr 21 - 9:40 AM

Jake Livermore is back from a hamstring injury and is joined by Kieran Gibbs who is back as well and Jonny Evans, Gareth Barry and others who will apparently not face any club-mandated suspension after their roles in the incident in Barcelona.

Good news for Allan Pardew as he will have a side that is close to full strength available to him for the visit of fellow strugglers Huddersfield Town on Saturday. Jake Livermore and Kieran Gibbs return from minor injuries and are both likely to feature in the starting eleven. Jonny Evans will be restored to his role as captain despite his unseemly participation in the incident with a car in Barcelona. Only Nacer Chadli, James Morrison and Daniel Sturridge will be absent from the squad of likely contributors.

Jake Livermore will miss West Brom's trip to Stamford Bridge as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Jake Livermore's absence continues leaving Claudio Yacob and Gareth Barry as the likely pairing at the base of midfield against Chelsea on Monday. The duo were outclassed against Southampton last weekend and even with Chelsea's recent struggles it seems hard to fathom that the Blues wouldn't have the midfield dynamism to overrun Yacob and Barry on Monday. Perhaps Alan Pardew takes a page out of Tony Pulis' book and inserts an additional center back to help stem the tide but if he doesn't, look for Chelsea to run riot.

Jake Livermore missed the 0-0 bore draw with West Ham United but manager Tony Pulis remains hopeful that the midfielder will be back to face Arsenal in game week six.

The Baggies midfielder was given a few days off to help him recover after feeling "mentally tired" following a hectic summer with little down time: "Just to clarify the club (both management and medical) made the decision - it was right to take few days off to rest my body," revealed Livermore through his personal Twitter account: "I hadn't had this time in summer due to international duties and then myself wanting to do a full pre-season with my then new team-mates." Speaking after the game on Saturday, Pulis confirmed after checking Livermore’s running stats and his data that "he had dropped off a bit" so decided to give him a break. "We could have done with his energy against West Ham with the way the game went. He won't play on Wednesday [Carabao Cup] but hopefully he will be ready to face Arsenal on Monday.

England quartet Nathaniel Chalobah, Kieran Trippier, Jake Livermore and Phil Jones all sat out of training on Tuesday as a precaution due to minor injuries.

Jose Mourinho revealed after the win over Leicester City on Saturday that Jones has been "complaining about ankle problems" in recent weeks which requires constant medical attention. Similarly, Tottenham full-back Trippier is also struggling with an ankle related issue which forced him to miss the Premier League opener at Newcastle. The nature of the injuries sustained by the uncapped Chalobah and Livermore has not been disclosed but all four are expected to be available for Fridays World Cup qualifier in Malta. Newcastle stopper Freddie Woodman, currently with the under-20s, trained as part of the main group today in the absence of Jordan Pickford who left the camp due to a muscle strain. There are no plans to call-up a replacement for the Everton stopper as Gareth Southgate already has three goalkeepers – Tom Heaton, Joe Hart and Fraser Forster – at his disposal.

In his first start for the Baggies, Jake Livermore contributed to a clean sheet and put up some solid peripheral stats.

The problem in assessing Jake Livermore's debut for Tony Pulis' side is that it came due to a Claudio Yacob illness. Livermore played well contributing to a clean sheet and having a strong chance on goal late that he missed out on due to an unfortunate slip. Stoke City are a solid opponent leaving open the real possibility that Livermore could be a solid fantasy option in scoring systems that favor peripheral stats. That said, it seems likely that he will drop back to the bench in favor of Yacob once the Argentine is healthy again which should be this weekend.

Jake Livermore has completed a £10 million move from Hull City to West Bromwich Albion after Tony Pulis failed in his bid for Morgan Schneiderlin.

Apparently Tony Pulis can only go so long adding attacking options before he needs to reconnect with who he is and bring in a player whose primary purpose is to disrupt attacks rather than spark them. After being beaten to the Morgan Schneiderlin punch by Everton, Tony Pulis has purchased a similar profile of player in former Spurs trainee Jake Livermore. Livermore will have to compete with Claudio Yacob and Darren Fletcher for time in the Albion midfield. Little about Livermore's history leads us to believe that his contributions will be statistically significant for fantasy purposes regardless of scoring format.

West Brom manager Tony Pulis has made a £10 million bid for Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore.

Pulis is in the market for a midfielder with a defensive mentality, having unsuccessfully pursued Morgan Schneiderlin already in this winter transfer window. Livermore was signed by Hull in 2014 from Spurs and has a single cap for England. He started last Saturday's victory against Bournemouth on the bench with Ryan Mason and Tom Huddlestone both being favoured by new boss Marco Silva.

Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore's contract has been extended by Hull City in order to keep him at the club until the end of the 2017/18 season.

Livermore's deal was set to expire at the end of the season which would have allowed him to leave on a free in the summer. However, in the absence of a long term deal being secured, Hull have acted to retain the services of the 27 year old. Negotiations over a long-term agreement will resume in the New Year.

Hull City's caretaker boss Mike Phelan is yet to find the correct balance for his Hull team in midfield.

Last weekend's 2-0 home loss to Chelsea showed very positive signs in the first half but eroded quickly in the second half. The 4-3-3/4-5-1 that they play limited a surprisingly limited Chelsea outfit in the first half. The Blues actually failed to get a shot on target in that half while Hull create a few half-chances. Arguments are starting to become more justified for Jake Livermore to return to his natural slot in central midfield, with Diomande dropping to the bench and Clucas to push out left. Plenty of food for thought for Phelan, who faces a good run of fixtures after the international break.

Mike Phelan is not ruling out a defensive future for Jake Livermore who has made the successful transition from midfield maestro to ball-playing centre-back following a number of injuries at the start of the new campaign.

Livermore stepped in for the season opener against champions Leicester City and he hasn’t looked back since. Losing Michael Dawson and Harry Maguire [both ankle] in pre-season, and with limited options in a threadbare Tigers squad, Livermore slotted into the back-four to partner Curtis Davies and the 26-year-old has started every Premier League game even though Maguire is now fit. "I've never really had the conversation with Jake as to where he sees his future, whether that's in midfield or the position he's in at the moment," said Phelan. "He's taken to it really, really well. When we look at the games and we analyse, he's very comfortable there. He's added a certain amount of calmness to proceedings."

Jake Livermore was sent-off during the first half at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday, but the midfielder, come defender will be available for selection in game week six.

Livermore blocked Francis Coquelin's goal-bound effort in the box, leaving referee Roger East with no option but to send him off and award the visitors a penalty despite protests from the home side. However, Hull will feel justice was served after Eldin Jakupovic guessed correctly, diving to his right, to save Alexis Sanchez's low spot-kick. Because the offence carries a mandatory one game ban, Livermore will serve his suspension in the EFL Cup on Wednesday making him eligible for the game at Anfield next weekend.

Jake Livermore, who remains suspended for a positive drug test, will be Steve Bruce's only enforced absentee for their season finale against Manchester United.

It is all on the line for Hull City as Manchester United come to the KC Stadium looking to guarantee their former player Steve Bruce and his charges are relegated. Hull City need to win against the fourth place team in the league and get help from West Ham who must win or draw at St. James' Park for Hull City to stay up. Bruce will likely name an unchanged side for the match which means Nikica Jelavic, Dame N'Doye, Ahmed Elmohamady and Robbie Brady are likely the most interesting fantasy prospects.

Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore has been suspended for the final two weeks of the season following a positive test for cocaine.

Steve Bruce will be doubly mad about Livermore's suspension. There's the normal aggravation that a manager has with a player who gets suspended for something entirely avoidable. This is compounded by the fact that Hull City are fighting for their Premier League lives and now they'll have to do it a man down. Whether there will be longer term ramifications for Livermore will likely be revealed over the summer.

Jake Livermore was poor against Arsenal on Monday and now faces a late fitness test ahead of Hull City's massive match against Burnley at the KC Stadium.

If Steve Bruce is going to get the Livermore we saw on Monday - misplacing passes and being dispossessed in inopportune parts of the field - then maybe he'll be hoping that Livermore fails his fitness test. At his best, Livermore is an integral cog in Hull City's midfield but that certainly wasn't the case against Arsenal. With Hull City needing three points in the worst way, Bruce will likely be conservative with any injury decisions.
