Half-hearted Reds? Since his correction received at Aston Villa at the beginning of the month with a score of 7-2, Liverpool have chained 4 good performances in all competitions, with a draw in the Mersery derby against Everton (2-2) and three successes of rank, including two in the Champions League. It was therefore a question of continuing this Saturday night against West Ham during the 7th day of the Premier League. But Jurgen Klopp’s men were very laborious in their offensive constructions and pusillanimous in their decision-making. So that the rearguard of the Reds was taken by surprise by Fornals, who took advantage of a discount in the axis of an uninspired Joe Gomez on a center of Masuaku to beat Alisson of the right. Led from the tenth minute, Liverpool had a hard time creating opportunities with a trio Salah-Firmino-Mané not really transcendent. At 5 minutes before the break, the Egyptian player nevertheless suffered the fault of Masuaku on a cross from the left in the area of the Hammers. Penalty, transformed by the former Roma who equalized with a low shot from the left. 1-1, nothing was done at rest.

Solidarity in defense and crisscrossing the field well via organized pressing, the Hammers were biding their time against in the second act. Faced with the lack of axial solutions, Liverpool tried to broaden the field of operations, but found themselves multiplying sterile side passes against Hammers not stingy in efforts in the defensive replacement. Salvation was about to come from summer recruit Diogo Jota. The expensive summer rookie of the Reds concluded a placed attack of the Reds by deceiving Fabianski with a strike without control of the right, just to render a service to his family, while he came into play 20 minutes from the end by substituting Sadio Mané. 2-1, final score, the Reds of Klopp overthrow the Hammers of Moyes thanks to their “clutch-player” of the moment. But the English champions did not show a very serene face. 63rd unbeaten home game for the Reds, series in progress.
