Liverpool travelled to east London to face West Ham United and returned without taking a single point in their bag. Thus, it also put an end to the Reds unbeaten 25-match run. Let’s have a look at the match highlights between Liverpool and West Ham.
The kick-off saw an energetic atmosphere in the London Stadium. The crowd was right behind their home side right from the first whistle blew. Thus, as a result, West Ham got an early lead in the game via a mistake from Alisson. Thereafter, Liverpool dominated the game in the first half and it eventually resulted in an equalizer. With Trent Alexander-Arnold pulling one back from a superb free-kick after a long time.
With this, the first half came to an end reading the scoreline as West Ham United 1-1 Liverpool.
Approaching to 2nd half, the game was evenly balanced. However, The Hammers had different plans on the night and Pablo-Fornals strikes to give David Morris side their lead back. Soon after retaining their lead back, West ham yet again struck in quick succession in the name of the former Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.
Meanwhile, this persuaded Jurgen Klopp to bring on attacking players from the bench as Liverpool were 2 goals down with a quarter of the game yet to commence. Thus, this resulted in decreasing the deficit to 1 goal as Divock Origi’s delightful strike gave the Reds a spark to comeback. The mission impossible was on the verge of becoming successful for the Reds but Mane missed a sitter and thus the game ended as West Ham 3-2 Liverpool.
Next up for Liverpool is a clash against Arsenal at Anfield after the players return from their international break.
