West Ham Beat Liverpool 3-2 In Exciting London Stadium Clash

West Ham United stunned Liverpool as they secured a huge 3-2 victory that moved them above their opponents into third place in the Premier League.

Liverpool went into this game looking to set a new club record of 26 consecutive games being unbeaten, as well as get a win that would move them up to second place within a point of leaders Chelsea.

But the Reds fell behind early on when Alisson, under pressure from Angelo Ogbonna, flapped at Pablo Fornals’ corner and sent the ball into his own goal.

Both sides were fortunate not to be reduced to 10 men in the first half, with Aaron Cresswell catching Jordan Henderson with a heavy challenge before Ogbonna was hit in the face by a stray Diogo Jota elbow that resulted in the West Ham defender having to be substituted.

Four minutes before half-time, Trent Alexander-Arnold leveled things up as he curled home a stunning strike after playing a short free-kick to Mohamed Salah.

But West Ham regained the lead midway through the second half when Fornals put the ball past Alisson who was unable to keep out his low shot.

That goal led to the London Stadium exploding into deafening noise, which became even louder when Kurt Zouma headed in a corner minutes later.

Divock Origi scored to give Liverpool hope of rescuing something, but West Ham kept their nerve to take the three points.

Arsenal beat Watford 1-0 at Emirates with Emile Smith Rowe goal in the second half.

Everton and Tottenham played 0-0 in Antonio Conte’s debut on the Spurs’ bench.

Chelsea remains on top of the Premier League with 26 points, three more than Manchester City and West Ham. Liverpool is third with 22 followed by Arsenal with 20.
