Westham Ends Liverpool Unbeaten Run

Westham United has ended Liverpool 25 game unbeaten run as they defeat the Merseyside team by three goals to two in a hard-fought victory.

‘The Reds’ entered into this clash as the only team yet to lose a league game this season, as they are unbeaten in 20 league games spanning up from last season.

Liverpool, who scored within the opening 10minutes in their last three premier league games, saw themselves behind in the fourth minute.

Pablo Fornal’s corner was diverted in by Alisson, who was under pressure from Angel Ogbona. After VAR review for a possible foul on the goalkeeper, the goal stands.

As expected, Liverpool dominated possession while in search of an equaliser.

They eventually were able to break down the ‘Hammers’ defence in the 41st minute when Trent Alexander-Arnold whipped in a curler of a free-kick after Salah was fouled at the edge of the box.

The England right-back gave Luckasz Fanbiaski no chance as it ended in a stalemate into halftime.

The second half started as the first did, with Declan Rice headed effort hitting the crossbar.

The London side took advantage of their consistent press in the 67th minute.

Fornals broke through the reds defence and scored a second goal past Alison, who could do nothing about the shot.

With 16minutes left to play, former Chelsea player Kurt Zouma scored the third goal for the Hammers when he was let free to nod in a Bowen corner.

Divock Origi replaced Trent to bolster the attack as they searched for a lifeline.

The lifeline came in the 82nd minute after Origi’s brilliant turn and shot ended in the bottom corner of the net.

Sadio Mane almost equalised for Jurgen Klopp’s side when he nodded a glorious opportunity wide in added time.

This defeat ended Liverpool Unbeaten record in the league and five matches unbeaten run against the London side.

Westham moves to 3rd in the Premier league table above Liverpool, who dropped to 4th ahead of the International break.
