Liverpool entertained West Ham United at Anfield earlier tonight as they looked to earn another positive result in the Premier League at home. The Reds made a bright start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 22nd minute courtesy of Darwin Nunez’s well-placed header. The home team sat on their lead well and survived a scare after Alisson Becker saved Jarrow Bowen’s penalty which meant that they went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

Jurgen Klopp’s men controlled the game well in the second half and managed to grind out a 1-0 victory at Merseyside.

Let’s take a look at how each Liverpool player performed during the match against the Hammers.

GK: Alisson Becker – 8/10

The Brazilian keeper distributed the ball well and made a crucial save to deny Bowen from scoring from the penalty spot. He secured a well-deserved clean sheet tonight.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 7/10

He looked a bit nervy at the back but played some decent balls in the opposition half.

CB: Joe Gomez – 6.5/10

Gomez was strong in the air and dealt with the danger when needed.

CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 7/10

The Dutch centre-back kept a solid defensive shape inside his half and played some good passes going forward.
