West Brom boss Clarke admits getting tactics wrong at Liverpool

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke admits he got his system wrong at Liverpool.

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke admits he got his system wrong at Liverpool.

Clarke explained his reasoning for deploying Victor Anichebe in an attacking wide-left position at Anfield for the first time since the forward’s deadline-day arrival from Everton.

“I felt that with Victor’s power and strength off the side, he could cause Liverpool a problem,” Clarke told the WBA website.

“It’s a position he probably played in more often at Everton than he did as a striker. He knows that role well.

“But it didn’t work out for us.

“It’s something I’ll have to go away and look at. We’ll reassess and try to be better next week.”
