Preview: Liverpool vs. West Ham – prediction, team news, lineups
Many questioned whether Liverpool’s 7-1 drubbing of Rangers at Ibrox in the Champions League was a sign that the Reds were heading back towards top form, and they appear to have received their answers after Jurgen Klopp’s side inflicted Man City’s first defeat of the season at Anfield on Sunday.
Mohamed Salah – who scored the fastest hat-trick in Champions League history at Ibrox – performed a magical turn from Alisson Becker’s long punt forwards to spin Joao Cancelo in behind, before delicately placing the ball over the onrushing Ederson and into the back of the net with 14 minutes of normal time remaining.
The Egypt winger had been denied by Man City’s goalkeeper in a similar incident earlier in a frantic second half, which also saw the visitors have Phil Foden’s goal chalked off due to a foul by Erling Haaland on Fabinho in the build-up.
Given the amount of effort that Liverpool had to put into the match to claim all three points, it may not be the worst time for West Ham to play them only 72 hours later, although Klopp will be determined to ensure those performances levels do not end up being a one-off after a difficult start to the season.
The German has avoided a touchline ban for now despite being sent off after reacting angrily to Salah being denied a foul despite the match-winner clearly having his shirt pulled by Bernardo Silva, with the Football Association wanting to review the incident further before taking any action against the 55-year-old.
