Liverpool suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season on Sunday and it was pretty clear who the fans felt deserved to take most of the blame.

The Hammers raised Liverpool to third place and denied Jurgen Klopp’s side a piece of club history with an impressive 3-2 victory.

Goalkeeper Alisson Becker certainly could have done better on all three goals and would probably do well to ignore social media for now.

“Alisson spent the game sleeping,” wrote one, while another said that “the whole result is in Alisson.”

One fan added that it was one of their worst games for the club, while another simply wrote that it was ‘horrible’.

Liverpool came to London Stadium knowing that if they avoided defeat they would extend their unbeaten streak to 26 games, beating the club’s all-time record set by Bob Paisley’s team in 1982.

They seemed set to do just that after a wonderful free kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold.

But West Ham is serious this season too, and he proved it when Pablo Fornals, whose corner kick had been placed by Reds goalkeeper Alisson for the first goal, slipped away to score a second.

Kurt Zouma then headed a third and although Divock Origi threw one back with seven minutes to go, the Hammers clung to a famous victory.

West Ham took the lead in the fourth minute when Alisson, under pressure from Angelo Ogbonna as he jumped for the ball, touched Fornals’ corner at the net.

After a lengthy VAR review, for a possible foul and then a handball, the goal was conceded, much to Klopp’s dismay.

Diogo Jota, who started in place of the injured Roberto Firmino, could have tied in the half hour, but sent his header from a Jordan Henderson cross over the bar, while Alexander-Arnold’s volley was also too high.

But it wasn’t the first-half performance of a team that had scored at least three goals in its last six league away games.

However, with five minutes remaining before the break, Liverpool received a controversial free kick on the edge of the area when Mohamed Salah fell under the entrance of Declan Rice.

West Ham lined an eight-man wall, complete with Fornals as the ‘draft excluder’, but Alexander-Arnold avoided it with a simple one-yard pass to Salah on his right.

He left England’s right-back with the simpler task of lifting the ball over Jarrod Bowen at the far end of the wall, rather than the towering Rice, Dawson and Tomas Soucek, and he put in a superb effort time after time leaving the goalkeeper for the Hammers, Lukasz Fabianski totally wrong.

Michail Antonio missed a glorious opportunity to put West Ham back ahead when Said Benrahma sent him clean, only to have his control severely disappointed him at the wrong time, and Bowen was thwarted by a challenge from Virgil Van Dijk at the time. perfect. in the area in discount time.

Early in the second half, Dawson headed in from another angle from the crossbar, while at the other end Sadio Mane’s volley was intercepted by Fabianski.

It was Bowen, a player Klopp readily admits he admires, who unlocked Liverpool’s defense in the 67th minute after Dawson and Rice passed the ball to West Ham from within their own half.

The striker ran to the rear of Liverpool pedaling backwards, drawing in defenders, before passing the ball to Fornals, who ran to shoot Alisson.

There was more to come. Antonio and Fornals were repulsed by Alisson before Bowen floated into a corner in the 75th minute and Zouma, unmarked, nodded at the far post.

Origi spun and fired home from 18 yards to set up a grandstand finish, but Liverpool couldn’t find a draw (Mane got in closer when he headed wide in injury time) and Hammers boss David Moyes celebrated. a place in the top three and a first win over Klopp in eight attempts.
