STAR PLAYER

Manuel Lanzini. Made the vital breakthrough early on and then his persistence was rewarded with an assist for the second. He offered a lively outlet down the right all match.

MOMENT OF THE MATCH

Dejan Lovren losing, regaining and then losing possession again all in the space of 20 seconds to Lanzini, who set up the crucial second goal.

VIEW FROM THE BENCH

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic was animated from the start and increasingly so in the closing stages as he willed his side on to an historic victory.

 

Even before half-time Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was scribbling furiously in his notebook. He made changes in the second half but none had any effect on the game.

MOAN OF THE MATCH

Referee Kevin Friend seemed to be officiating a different game to the one most were watching. Got Mark Noble's red card wrong and was far too lenient with a number of niggly fouls.

WHO'S UP NEXT?

Manchester United v Liverpool (Premier League, Saturday 12 September)

West Ham v Newcastle (Premier League, Monday 14 September)
