Liverpool suffered more than their fair share of injuries in the game, and Pablo Fornals, who scored an early goal for West Ham despite the restart, won 2-1, setting the Enfield Series record in 63rd place.
The home side had a chance to return in the game just before the break when Mohamed Salah won and converted a penalty.
Diogo Jota put the ball into the goal from behind in the 78th minute, but was blocked after checking the VAR. He then worked with the successor of Xerdan Shakiri to score the three points for Liverpool.

Liverpool managed to keep and dominate the ball for a long time. On the other hand West Ham was very well defended, but Liverpool attacked and defended so the opposition usually fought for the exit. They showed their usual ability to do enough to win races.
As long as they manage to get back in the game, it would be a shame for Liverpool to make it difficult for themselves with a reckless defense. They also struggled to really break the determined Western Ham by making their way through Arthur Masuaku’s mistake. A lot of passes were played, but the red dot game stopped.
Score of 10 for managers
7 – Jürgen Klopp has had a lot of dilemmas due to several injuries, but he and his team manage them pretty well because they continue to dominate the games. The German’s decision to offer Nathaniel Phillips a Premier League debut was confirmed by an encouraging performance. His replacement also worked miracles, as Jotha and Shakiri joined forces to ensure victory.
Player rankings (1-10; 10 = the best players registered after 70 minutes are not scored)
GK Alisson, 6 — It would have been hard to believe he had to stop the Fornals’ efforts and he seemed to dominate most of his game.
DF Trent Alexander-Arnold, 6 — Sometimes he met Masuaku if he didn’t have the same quality of landscape.
Six-year-old DF Joe Gomez was confident for most of the match, but his attempt to get into the Fornals’ opener was so weak.
DF Nathaniel Phillips, 8 years old. He started in the Premier League, but he seemed confident from the beginning. He was probably Liverpool’s most reliable protector.
DF Andrew Robertson, 6 years old… He had some big moments in defense, but there were other moments when he was caught too easily. In the direction of the attack, it may not have had the usual effects.
MF Curtis Jones, six years old… He had his moments, but he did nothing to break the West Ham defense.
MF Jordan Henderson, 7 years old… He played a lot of good balls and came close to scoring. Although they were not filmed, he still played an important role in the victory.
MF Giorginio Viinaldum, 6 – In the first half he seemed invisible for the points, but in the second half more points came into play.
FV Mohamed Salah, 7 — Won and converted the penalties into compensating fines, but was very quiet for long periods of time.

FW Roberto Firmino, 5 — Sometimes the part was well combined, but it could hardly have had a significant impact on the process before it was taken out of production.
FW Sadio Mane, 6 years old — He always defended the Hammers, but mostly he didn’t go anywhere.
Xerdan Shakiri, N.A. — replaced Jones in the ’70s. Minute and put Jotha on the winning goal.
DIogo Jota, N/A — After 70 minutes, Firmino was replaced, the ball was in the net, but a VAR check was denied, so he made sure the ball went back into the net. Firmino may have been worried about his performance.
James Milner, N.A. — replaced Sala in the ’90s. Minute and helped Liverpool watch the game.
