Jurgen Klopp’s team failed to cut the gap at the top as Chelsea were held by Burnley on Saturday, while the Hammers moved above Liverpool into third place.

After four minutes, Alisson only managed to push Fornals’ whipped corner into his own goal, despite Liverpool’s protests for a foul from Angelo Ogbonna falling on deaf ears.

Following a quick free-kick routine with Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota headed over before Alexander-Arnold leveled with a stunning drive into the top-right corner. After the half, Craig Dawson hit the crossbar with a header, while Lukasz Fabianski had to save a left-footed volley from Sadio Mane at the other end.

After 67 minutes, West Ham seized the lead again when Jarrod Bowen went on a driving run before releasing Fornals, who managed to squeak a left-footed effort past Alisson.

The visitors’ woes were compounded when Zouma rose highest to head home Aaron Cresswell’s corner – the Hammers’ 32nd top-flight goal from set-pieces since Moyes took over, six more than any other team.
