Key note: “Not even a superb display of skill and effort by Kevin Keegan could lead Liverpool to League Cup victory at Anfield last night. Against a West Bromwich team which provided the defensive performance of all-out defence by playing all eleven men back most of the time, Liverpool gave themselves an additional fixture they did not want by only drawing 1-1 so that they have to go to Hawthorns next Monday for the replay.” (Liverpool Echo: September 1, 1976)
