West Ham United beat Liverpool 3-2 on Sunday, in one of the biggest upsets of the season so far. With this win, West Ham are now third in the Premier League!
Liverpool’s search for a new club record of 26 games unbeaten ended in misery on Sunday, when they lost 3-2 away to West Ham.
The Reds fell behind early on when Alisson, under pressure from Angelo Ogbonna, wildly lashed at Pablo Fornals’ corner and succeeded only in helping the ball into his own goal.
A scrappy first half meant both sides were fortunate not to be reduced to 10 men, with Aaron Cresswell catching Jordan Henderson with a heavy challenge before Ogbonna was hit in the face by a stray Diogo Jota elbow that resulted in the West Ham defender having to be substituted.
Four minutes before half-time, however, a burst of quality brought Liverpool level when Trent Alexander-Arnold curled home a stunning strike after playing a short free-kick to Mohamed Salah.
Craig Dawson hit the woodwork with a header from a corner for West Ham after the break before Lukasz Fabianski superbly kept out Sadio Mane’s fierce volley from close range.
West Ham, however, retook the lead midway through the second half when Fornals was slipped a low shot on goal which Alisson was unable to keep.
That goal led to the London Stadium exploding into deafening noise, which became even louder when Kurt Zouma headed in a corner minutes later.
While Divock Origi swept in Liverpool’s second goal to make the match 3-2, West Ham held on to take the three points.
