EPL Wrap: NFF Targets With Senior Games For England, Italy Make Liverpool, Watford 18In the lunch-time kick off, West Brom battled back from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw against Liverpool in their Premier League clash at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp's side led earlier through Danny Ings 4th minute opener before Mohamed Salah struck his 31st league goal of the season to equal a record for the most goals scored in a 38-game Premier League campaign.

A goal from Jake Livermore and a late one from Salomon Rondon, however denied the visitors while the Baggies continue their struggle to avoid the drop.

Nigerian Football Federation target Dominic Solanke was included on the bench for Liverpool in the match, but could not come on for his 20th league appearance for the season.

At the Vicarage Road, the tension-packed battle between Watford and Crystal Palace was goalless after ninety minutes.

Watford's Nigerian striker, Stefano Okaka has yet to play a full match this season for the Hornets and it was no different today, as he made way for Kiko Femenia after 70 minutes. His header hit the woodwork in the 4th minute.

Okaka and Solanke are known to be on the radar of the Nigeria Football Federation with a view to representing the Super Eagles but their international future lies with Italy and England respectively for now as they have played friendly games for the senior teams of the European nations.
