To everyone’s surprise, West Ham dominated Liverpool this Sunday in PL. A success achieved with art and style.
Liverpool are no longer undefeated. The only major league team not yet to have fallen this season, Klopp’s team made a splash this Sunday during a trip to West Ham. In London, she gave in and quite logically on top of that.
West Ham played without complexes
From the start of the game, it was obvious that the Merseysiders were not going to be able to play the game as they know how to do. Their hosts for the day took them by the entrance gorge, with high pressing and a lot of commitment. Not used to being jostled in this way, the vice-champions of England foiled.
It was therefore not surprising that Londoners opened the brand. It was done after four minutes of play, with an unfortunate against his camp Alisson. The Brazilian has a hole, summoning the memory of the dumplings made by his predecessors in this position.
At 1-0, Liverpool were still in the game. But, to get back to the brand he needed an individual achievement. That of Trent Alexander-Arnold. The English side made the difference with a magnificent free kick from 20 meters (41st). After the clocks had been reset, it was thought that visitors had left to enforce the hierarchy. It has not happened.
In the second half, West Ham regained the ascendancy, playing in a completely uninhibited manner. An ambitious game which LFC once again paid the price in the 67th when Pablo Fornals defeated Alisson after being thrown full axis. It was 2-1, then 3-1 when the French Kurt Zouma came to take a corner with his head (74th).
The late awakening of the Reds
With two goals ahead, and under the influence of euphoria, West Ham relaxed a bit. This cost him a reduction in the score, signed Divock Origi (83rd). The Londoners were then strong enough to preserve the meager advantage and secure their first victory against Liverpool since January 2016. It was not without trembling however, since Sadio Mané worried them with a head (91st) after having already done so on a close-range recovery in the 52nd.
This success of the Hammers must have been particularly to their coach David Moyes. As a former manager of Everton and Manchester United, the Scottish technician must fully savor this great blow against the Reds. And in addition, his training doubles his rival of the day in the standings to position himself on the podium. What to spend a beautiful international break.
