Goals: West Ham United 3-2 Liverpool

 

West Ham United leapfrogged Liverpool and moved up to third in the Premier League table with an impressive 3-2 win at a raucous London Stadium.

Ending a demanding period of seven fixtures in the space of 22 days across three competitions unbeaten - a splendid feat in itself - Pablo Fornals’ breakaway goal and Kurt Zouma’s first West Ham goal were enough to see the Hammers come out on top in an open-ended second half after Trent Alexander-Arnold's free-kick had cancelled out Alisson Becker’s own-goal early in the first half.

Divock Origi pulled a goal back late on for Liverpool, but West Ham deserved the three points for an awesome show of character which resulted in them inflicting a first defeat on the visitors in the Premier League this season and end Liverpool's unbeaten run of 25 games prior.

Results seldom come more impressive, nor do atmospheres - the backdrop to an instant Club classic.
