Trent Alexander Arnold then scored a sublime freekick to go all square into the dressing room. Pablo Fornals then scored before Zouma doubled their advantage with 15 minutes to go. Divock Origi pulled one back to ensure a tough last few minutes for the hosts.

Managers Reaction

West Ham boss David Moyes: “It is a brilliant victory against a really good team. We played Thursday night too and to put in a performance with the energy to hang in at the end is great for the players.”

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: “The first goal is a foul on the goalie. The arm goes against Alisson’s arm so how can he catch the ball when someone pulls his arm away? It makes no sense. It’s the typical excuse that VAR says it’s not clear and obvious but then what do you need?” he added. “What can [Alisson] do? That’s why the goalie is protected in moments. If a player goes up with his arm for a goalie that’s an important position of the body and if that’s in the way how can he make a save?”
