Half-time at the London Stadium…

West Ham United 1-1 Liverpool

West Ham got off to a flyer in what was a well-contested opening period.

Alisson flapped hopelessly at Pablo Fornals’ fourth-minute corner – the ball spinning into the back of the net.

Liverpool pressed, enjoying plenty of the ball. They restored parity five minutes before the break. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free-kick was too good for Lukasz Fabianski, and probably Lev Yashin, Gordon Banks and Sepp Mair too boot!
