The Hammers produced a world class display against Liverpool with Manuel Lanzini impressing on his debut. West Ham won their first league match at Anfield since 1963 and inflicted a first loss of the season on Liverpool in a game featuring two red cards.
Lanzini scored the first goal and set up the second for Mark Noble, who became the second player sent off after Philippe Coutinho was red carded for Liverpool.
Diafra Sakho added a third for West Ham in injury time.
According to Liverpool website, Rodgers said at his post-match press conference that Liverpool were disappointing today.
In his words … “We arrived into the game with confidence high but when you give away a goal so early in the game, it gave West Ham the boost and the lift that they needed, because they have shown in their two games away from home now that they can sit in and defend in a low block well. That seemed to set us back a bit.
