GOAL FLASH! Liverpool 1-0 West Ham United

(8’mins): Unsurprisingly, the home side, calm and comfortable, made all the early running. Andrew Robertson fired over following a free-flowing move, while Sadio Mane almost caught Lukasz Fabianski napping after the Polish stopper dwelled too long on a backpass from Issa Diop.

Nevertheless, it was clear that a Liverpool goal was already imminent. Georginio Wijnaldum’s header had too much for Fabianski – this after Trent Alexander-Arnold had expertly picked him out from the right.
