Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish admitted it was another case of déjà vu as he saw his side lose at home to West Brom despite dominating the game.
The Reds wasted a host of openings in the game before Peter Odemwingie punished them for their wastefulness in front of goal with the winner 15 minutes from time after a mistake by Glen Johnson.
Liverpool have now won just one league game at home in 2012 and dropped 27 points at Anfield in the whole campaign and Dalglish admitted the game was like watching repeats of previous performances this season.
"It's not just been one of those days; it's been like that seven or eight times here," said Dalglish.
"There's not much else that we can add to what we've said before so many times after a game at Anfield.
"I think you could go back over the old interviews and it'll be the same thing.
"They just need a bit of luck I think. It sounds repetitive but it's not an excuse.
"We're not running away from something. It's not as if there's something drastically wrong that we can't identify.
"It is just a piece of good fortune that we need."
