West Brom Are Playing The Ultimate 'Park The Bus' Formation Against Liverpool

West Brom shocked fans on social media with their 2-1-7 formation at kick-off before adopting an extremely defensive shape.

The Baggies kicked off the Premier League fixture against Liverpool with not one but FIVE players on the right wing.

Sam Allardyce's side then 'parked the bus', putting literally every man behind the ball as they camped inside their own half.

Fans on Twitter mocked West Brom's shape, calling the formation 6-4-0 and 5-5 with their attackers playing very, very deep.

Despite their numbers in defence, West Brom failed to keep out Sadio Mane who smashed home from close range in the 12th minute after Joel Matip pierced a delightful pass.

What's more, according to Richard Jolly, West Brom did NOT complete an outfield pass between them in the opening 16 minutes.
