Match Preview: West Ham vs Liverpool on 7/11/2021

West Ham held off a late Liverpool fightback to win 3-2 and leapfrog their opponents in the Premier League table.

The opening goal arrived just minutes in as a West Ham corner was swung at and mostly missed by Alisson Becker’s fist, resulting in an own goal from the ‘keeper. While the home side then sat back, allowing the visitors all of the possession, it looked a struggle for Liverpool to break down two hard-working banks of four, until Mohamed Salah’s skill won a free-kick on the edge of the area - which Trent Alexander-Arnold sent into the top corner.

Straight after the restart Craig Dawson’s header hit the bar for the Hammers, while Sadio Mane then fired straight at the home team’s goalkeeper from close range. But rather than the Reds push on from that, it was West Ham who retook and then extended their lead: Pablo Fornals breaking clear to beat Alisson, before Kurt Zouma nodded in another dangerous corner delivery.

Divock Origi swivelled to finish and pull one back for Liverpool, but Mane sent a header wide at the death in the Reds’ final chance to preserve a point.

FULL TIME: West Ham 3-2 Liverpool

It’s Liverpool’s first defeat of the season and a costly one as they lose ground on both Chelsea and Manchester City in the title race.

The Reds were shaky defensively and conceded two goals from West Ham corners. They could not cope with the Hammers and their strength from set-pieces.

FULL TIME: West Ham 3-2 Liverpool

It’s a huge win for West Ham and David Moyes, who move above Liverpool into third in the Premier League table!

They become the first team to beat Liverpool in 25 matches, and the first since Real Madrid back in April!

Another memorable night for the Hammers in this astonishing season.
