Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "It's one of the most hard places to go because you can't feel comfortable in one moment of the game".
Despite their struggles, the Baggies began brightly and Hal Robson-Kanu directed Matt Phillips' effort wide but Liverpool gradually took control and almost went ahead after 15 minutes.
Chris Brunt pulled back Divock Origi, earning a booking for his troubles, and the Northern Ireland international's indiscipline was punished when Lucas Leiva flicked on James Milner's delivery from the right and Firmino headed home.
Alberto Moreno should have made it 2-0 in injury time after goalkeeper Ben Foster joined the Albion attacks but missed an open goal from 40 yards after Foster and James McClean lost the ball. But we have been actually.
Mignolet said: "Three points were massive for us today". "We've had three really good opportunities where I would have expected to score, but you can't criticise the players".
"My one disappointment about our performance was the first 20 minutes of the second half". We knew they would throw everything at us late on.
Firmino was certainly grappling with Dawson prior to breaking free and stooping to head past Foster, although the chances are that Pulis would have expected the goal to stand if the same thing had happened at the other end. Liverpool's Roberto Firmino, right, celebrates with teammate Philippe Coutinho after scoring his side's first goal during their English Premier League soccer match against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, West Bromwich, Eng.
Albion have now taken just four points - against Manchester United and Arsenal - from their last seven games as their bid to break 50 points for the first time in the Premier League falters.
The visitors were under pressure early on but Hal Robson-Kanu could only volley wide after being played in during the third minute.
