Liverpool 2-1 West Ham: Hammers rue chance to beat under-par Reds

Having held Man City last week, this was another gutsy performance by us as we attacked in numbers and gave Liverpool a real scare.

We arrived at Anfield unbeaten in our previous four games against sides who finished in the top seven last season, but we were without key forward Michail Antonio, who scored a superb goal against City before suffering a hamstring injury.

After being restricted to 50 minutes of Premier League football this season, Sebastien Haller was handed his first top-flight start of the season in place of Antonio. But it was midfielder Fornals who produced a lovely finish to put his side ahead.

After Salah equalised, the former Villarreal player was denied a second goal by Andrew Robertson’s important block, yet we were unable to secure a point our hard work deserved as we were undone at the end by substitute Diogo Jota who scored for the third straight game.

“It’s a good sign that we’re disappointed not to take anything from Anfield. We had really good opportunities to maybe get a second goal. I wanted it to be more than just the odd counter-attack. We were a threat, we were well organised and disciplined in the jobs we had to do.”

West Ham manager David Moyes
