With this victory, Liverpool are now one point behind Chelsea, fourth, and three points behind Leicester City, third.
The victories against Burnley and Crystal Palace will see the Reds place in the top four and advance to the Champions League.
Brazilian Alisson Becker lost his father in February and he was “too emotional” after this extraordinary feat.
“It’s too emotional. The last few months for everything that’s happened to me, to my family, but football is my life,” Alisson told Sky Sports.
“I’ve been playing since I can remember with my dad. I hope he was there to see it, but I’m sure he saw it with God by his side and he’s partying.”
West Brom, who has already been relegated from the Premier League, has been left to curse his luck.
Liverpool’s away win over Manchester United on Thursday kept their Champions League fate in their hands.
Liverpool are fifth on the table 36 points with a goal difference of 21. Table winners Manchester City have already won the league this season.
