Before kickoff, Keown said: "I am a bit surprised that Mario Balotelli's been dropped.
"His performances haven't been great but in terms of building the relationship with the manager, today against West Brom is a game that Liverpool should win and there would be opportunity for that.
"He hasn't scored the goals you are looking for, but it is a collective problem. By dropping him today, it suggests that he is the problem."
