West Ham End Liverpool Unbeaten Record At London Stadium

With a 3-2 victory over Liverpool, West Ham leapfrogged their opponents into third place in the Premier League, ending the Reds’ 25-game undefeated run.

In what is turning out to be another excellent season for David Moyes’ team, it was the quintessential West Ham performance, highlighted by power on the counter-attack and tenacity at set-pieces.

With their first effort, West Ham seized the lead when Pablo Fornals’ corner slid over Alisson’s glove and into the net, despite a VAR check for a probable foul. Aaron Cresswell was fortunate not to be sent out for a studs-up challenge on Jordan Henderson, which was also reviewed by VAR.

Jurgen Klopp disagreed with both rulings after the game, calling Alisson’s goal an ‘obvious foul’ and Cresswell’s challenge ‘reckless’.

Liverpool, on the other hand, dominated possession and equalized just before the interval, with Trent Alexander-Arnold sending a spectacular free-kick into the top corner from 20 yards, the lone chance on target in the first half.

After superb work by Jarrod Bowen to bring him through on goal, Fornals put West Ham ahead again in the second half, sliding under Alisson. However, questions about Liverpool’s high defensive line will be raised once more.

West Ham’s might was too much for Liverpool, as they added a third goal through Kurt Zouma’s header from a Bowen corner, and despite a nervy finish from substitute Divock Origi, West Ham held on.
