    FULL-TIME: LIVERPOOL 3-2 WEST HAM. What a roller-coaster night and in the end it's same old same old, as Liverpool win again! Not their best performance, but they win!

  • 96'

    West Ham have a last minute free-kick after a silly foul. They get a corner out of it after a deflection.

  • 93'

    SUBSTITUTION: Mane is replaced by Matip, as Klopp wants to seal this game now.

  • 90'

    We will have five minutes of time added on for stoppages. Is that more drama?

  • 89'

    SAVE! Bowen runs at an angle and forces a save out of Alisson, who concedes a corner. The corner is cleared.

  • 86'

    NO GOAL, LIVERPOOL, MANE! Mane is adjudged offside by VAR! The correct decision and probably one of the fastest VAR decisions EVER!

  • 83'

    SUBSTITUTION: Snodgrass is off for West Ham and has been replaced by Bowen.

  • 81'

    GOAL, LIVERPOOL, MANE! (3-2) And there it is! Liverpool lead through a sheer force of will! Chaos in the box again! Robertson draws the keeper and Mane slides home the deflection into an open goal!

  • 79'

    YELLOW! Noble is booked for grabbing at Oxlade-Chamberlain. A fair booking this time.

  • 77'

    Salah gets the better of Ogbonna and then secures a corner.

  • 76'

    This is not a good time to make some tea or pour a glass of wine. What a game!

  • 76'

    This is not a good time to make some tea or pour a glass of wine. What a game!

  • 74'

    CLOSE AGAIN! Liverpool secure a corner and this time Salah can't push it in! How did West Ham keep that out?

  • 71'

    CLOSE! The flag stays down, as Antonio fails to control the ball with only Alisson to beat! WOW!

  • 71'

    CLOSE! The flag stays down, as Antonio fails to control the ball with only Alisson to beat! WOW!

  • 68'

    GOAL, LIVERPOOL, SALAH! (2-2) Oxlade-Chamberlain finds Robertson on the left with a brilliant pass. He in-turn finds Salah, who beats the keeper easily! Was that a mistake? Fabianski should have done better there!

  • 66'

    YELLOW! Diop is booked for a foul on Mane, but did Mane actually clip him? Unlucky!

  • 65'

    SUBSTITUTION: West Ham now bring on Sebastien Haller for Felipe Anderson.

  • 63'

    It's a question of can West Ham hold on?

  • 61'

    SAVE! Liverpool have a corner and Alexander-Arnold fires it home, but GREAT work by Fabianski again!

  • 59'

    WIDE! Oxlade-Chamberlain tries a long-range shot, but Lukasz Fabianski was not really worried. He had that covered.

  • 57'

    SUBSTITUTION: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is on for Naby Keita. Klopp is not happy!

  • 55'

    GOAL, WEST HAM UNITED, FORNALS! (1-2) Anfield is stunned! What a goal by Fornals off the bench! Noble sends it to Snodgrass and Rice finds Fornals. The rest is history!

  • 51'

    YELLOW! Rice is booked for a stupid foul and that may well prove costly later on.

  • 49'

    Soucek had a very good first half and he will be missed.

  • 48'

    Soucek is down and we have a stoppage in play. We have a forced SUBSTITUTION for West Ham and Pablo Fornals is on for Soucek.

  • 46'

    Kick-off! We are back underway. It's a proper contest here. Can the Hammers cause an upset?

  • 45'

    HALF-TIME: LIVERPOOL 1-1 WEST HAM UNITED. West Ham can be proud of that 45 minutes. They have showed more than when they played City last week and they scored at Anfield.

  • 44'

    We will have one minute of time added on for stoppages.

  • 43'

    Noble is lucky to get away with no card after a silly foul.

  • 40'

    Ngakia now secures a corner after a deflection off Van Dijk.

  • 38'

    CLOSE and WIDE from Alexander-Arnold after beating the wall! Liverpool then have a corner and the Van Dijk header hits the cross-bar! WOW!

  • 35'

    Mane draws a foul out of Ngakia and Alexander-Arnold is all over the set-piece.

  • 33'

    Cresswell secures a corner after a deflection off Alexander-Arnold. The flag is up for offside and Liverpool breathe.

  • 32'

    Cresswell secures a corner after a deflection off Alexander-Arnold. The flag is up for offside.

  • 31'

    CLOSE! West Ham is caught out after a Salah run and Firmino finds Alexander-Arnold, who shoots WIDE!

  • 29'

    Currently West Ham have six players back in defence at any given time. They are defending with determination.

  • 26'

    The question has to be - Can West Ham continue at this pace?

  • 24'

    Another Liverpool corner not long after that. We then go to the other side and West Ham secure the ninth corner of the match after a Gomez error. What a game!

  • 21'

    Liverpool secure a corner after just conceding one on the other side, but their counter-attack on fire as usual.

  • 19'

    A good passage of play for West Ham since that goal. Good for them!

  • 15'

    Rice is guilty and Liverpool secure a promising free-kick. West Ham clear it, but only just.

  • 12'

    GOAL, WEST HAM UNITED, DIOP! (1-1) WOW! Well Done WEST HAM! They hit back after a corner and the Diop header is even better than that of Wijnaldum! Alisson was caught by surprise there!

  • 9'

    GOAL, LIVERPOOL, WIJNALDUM! (1-0). What a classy and clever finish after some superb passing and crossing between the various Liverpool players. Another assist by Alexander-Arnold, as Wijnaldum slots home the opening goal.

  • 8'

    Noble feeds Antonio for West Ham, but somehow Gomez sticks to Antonio and secures a free-kick.

  • 7'

    The first shot towards goal comes from Robertson after some crisp Liverpool passing. It just goes OVER!

  • 5'

    Liverpool secure the first corner and Ogbonna is up to it also, as he clears the Alexander-Arnold in-swinging corner.

  • 2'

    Van Dijk the captain on the night finds Robertson, but the latter just loses the ball. A good Van Dijk pass though. Will we see more of that?

  • 1'

    Kick-off! We are underway! Our referee is Jonathan Moss. He will be assisted by Marc Perry and Eddie Smart and the fourth official is Lee Mason. The VAR is Paul Tierney.
