Izzy Brown has revealed Albion were hoping to score from a corner against Liverpool, not concede.

Yesterday's 5-1 thrashing at the Amex was launched by an Emre Can header from a corner after Glenn Murray skewed wide a cross from Brown.

Chelsea loanee Brown, brought into the side at the expense of record buy Jose Izquierdo, told The Argus: "Before the game we were talking about our set plays and that we could be a threat.

"We never thought Liverpool would score against us from a set play but someone lost their man and it happens sometimes in football.

"We had a good chance in the first half, should have taken it, but we didn't. They were clinical and that's the difference between us and them on the day."

Two counter-attacking Roberto Firmino goals, a free-kick struck under the jumping defensive wall by the outstanding Philippe Coutinho and a Lewis Dunk own goal when he headed in Coutinho's shot completed the rout.

Glenn Murray replied from the penalty spot for Albion, reducing the arrears to 3-1 early in the second half.

Brown said: "They hit us on the break, so quick and so sharp, and they took their chances.

"That was the difference in this game, they took theirs and we didn't take ours. The boys were very disappointed in the changing room but we have to make it right next week against Huddersfield."
