Reds crash to heavy Hammers defeat
29 Aug 2015 17:05
Liverpool 0-3 West Ham
-
West Ham ended one of the longest winless runs in top-flight history with their first victory at Anfield in almost 52 years as Liverpool's defensive problems returned to haunt them in spectacularly bad style.
-
The curse of the manager's press conference came to the fore as after praising the new defensive stability which brought three clean sheets, Brendan Rodgers saw his side concede the fastest goal of the season so far to Manuel Lanzini inside three minutes.
-
Rodgers had also championed Dejan Lovren for overcoming his problems in his maiden season and showing he could be a "top-class" centre-back, but the £20milion Croatian repaid his manager's praise with a disastrous piece of defending to allow Mark Noble to score.
-
The West Ham captain was harshly sent off late on, after Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho had already been shown a second yellow card, but Diafra Sakho made it 3-0 in added time and 18,978 days after Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters - before they were World Cup winners with England - scored at Anfield, the Hammers had their long-awaited victory.
