West Brom 10 points adrift after losing 2-1 to Bournemouth

Salah has scored 36 goals for Liverpool in all competitions since joining from Roma a year ago - the most by any player in a debut season with the Reds. Bournemouth looked as though they were going to be punished for a lax display until they sprung into life when Ibe's devious effort from distance eluded Foster down to his left.

Salah turned provider for Roberto Firmino's goal in the 49th minute with a pin-point cross that the Brazilian guided into the net with an audacious mid-air back-flick.

A point would have done little to help the visitors but they were left with nothing with two minutes remaining. "They really did support the players in every moment of the game and that is all I can ask".

"We made a couple of errors in the game and we really paid for it".

Palace took the lead in the 23rd minute at the John Smith's Stadium when James Tomkins struck from close range after his first effort was blocked by Jonas Lossl.

It is a situation that seems now to mean that manager Alan Pardew will not be replaced until the end of the season despite a desperate sequence of just one Premier League - at home to Brighton - since he was appointed back in November. Any team who drops points against the Midlands based club in the final stretch of the season here must consider that a poor result.

"It is vitally important". The senior players need to deliver otherwise we won't be in with a shout of staying up.

But Jordon Ibe levelled for Bournemouth in the 77th minute and Junior Stanislas gave the Cherries their first win in five league games with an 89th-minute free-kick.

West Brom remain bottom on 20 points and have now lost their seventh straight league game.

"Greg has come and apologised to me on Tuesday and to my staff, which is unusual if I'm honest", Pardew said.

Ten-man Stoke City's fight against relegation suffered a big blow as they lost 2-1 at the Bet 365 Stadium in one of the four Premier League games on Saturday. Charlie Adam was sent off for a challenge on Wayne Rooney.
