West Ham beat Liverpool to end their 25-game unbeaten run

A 3-2 victory on Sunday allowed West Ham to replace Liverpool in the third position and also ended their unbeaten run, extending David Moyes’ impressive side to the start of the season. 

Alisson failed to hold the ball properly when Aaron Cresswell crossed the ball from the corner kick spot early in the first half. Trent Alexander-Arnold equalized at the end of the first half with a brilliant free-kick, and both sides had to settle for a draw into the second half. 

A few minutes into the second half Jarrod Bowen ran at the Liverpool defense before slipping the ball to Pablo Fornals whose shot was helped into the net by Alisson’s weak touch. Bowen then with another beautiful corner kick, whipped in a cross and was headed home by Kurt Zouma through Alisson’s raised hands in the 74th minute.

Although Divock Origi pulled one back, scoring on the turn, Liverpool couldn’t find another goal to avoid a first loss in any competition since being knocked out of the Champions League last season by Real Madrid in April. It’s even further back — into February — since the 2020 champions lost in the Premier League.

West Ham is now only three points behind leader Chelsea after finishing sixth last season for the highest finish since being fifth in 1999.
