Comments:

League position: 12th In their final home game at the end of their first season at the London Stadium, West Ham United conceded four or more goals in four home games in a league season for the first time since 1998-99 in the Premier League. This was the Hammers' first defeat in their last six games in the Premier League (won two). They failed in their attempt to keep clean sheets in four consecutive home games in the Premier League for the first time since February 2010. West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic said: "We have to be honest about it. We wanted to avoid complacency, we were without a few players but we were against Spurs too. But it was there, the complacency. They were better than us. We were nowhere near close enough to them at any time and if you give time and space to like Coutinho, Sturridge then sooner or later they will kill you. That's exactly what happened."

Comments:

League position: 3rd Liverpool had now won four consecutive away games in the Premier League for the first time since April 2014. All three of the braces that Philippe Coutinho had now scored in the Premier League had been scored in games played in London (also at Chelsea on 31 October 2015 and at Arsenal on 14 August 2016). Daniel Sturridge made his first start in the Premier League since 2 January 2017 in this game and only his sixth of the 2016-17 season. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said: "It was a fantastic game but difficult. At the end it was amazing but the start was not that good. We scored some really nice goals but in the first-half West Ham had big, big chances, especially to equalise before half-time. It was really unlucky for West Ham, but it was really lucky from our position. West Ham have not had too much luck this season."
