West Ham forward Michail Antonio later admitted it was a deliberate ploy to target Alisson from dead ball situations.
He said: ‘The whole plan was to nail it directly to the goalkeeper and we will challenge. We saw them struggling with the ball coming in, all we had to do was keep it away from Virgil van Dijk. ”
