Liverpool’s first loss of the season came at the hands of West Ham United, with goalkeeper Alisson to blame for all three goals in David Moyes’ side’s 3-2 victory.
West Ham climbed above Liverpool into third place in the Premier League, ending Jurgen Klopp’s 25-match undefeated run in all competitions.
An own goal by Alisson barely minutes into the game put West Ham on the road to victory. Liverpool were hauled back into the game by Trent Alexander-spectacular Arnold’s first-half free kick, but his effort was cancelled out by Pablo Fornals in the second half.
Kurt Zouma’s header from a West Ham corner sealed the victory on 74 minutes. However, late in the second half, West Ham’s pulses were racing as Divock Origi scored a header. However, it wasn’t enough to give Liverpool the victory.
Liverpool’s day got off to a horrible start as Fornal took a corner and Alisson punched it into his own net. Liverpool had objections after a foul on the goalkeeper, but the referee waived them away.
Liverpool didn’t have much of a chance until Alexander-Arnold stepped up to take a free kick on 41 minutes. He curved the ball around the wall and beyond Lukasz Fabianski, who was immobile.
After Sadio Mane lost the ball, West Ham caught Liverpool on the counterattack on 67 minutes. Jarrod Bowen sent the ball to Fornals, who fired a low shot past Alisson.
Bowen set up the third goal by throwing a superb corner into the area, which Zouma headed home.
On 83 minutes, Origi pounced on a stray ball to pull Liverpool back into the game, but they were unable to equalize.
