West Ham were magnificent against Liverpool yesterday and we were fully deserving of the three points.

The Hammers players did not stop running and working hard and made it incredibly hard for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Pablo Fornals helped West Ham take an early lead after his corner was punched into his own net by Alisson Becker.

Liverpool equalised before half-time but after the break the Hammers looked like a completely different animal.

West Ham boss David Moyes lifts lid on half-time Pablo Fornals switch masterclass

The 25-year-old was deployed out wide on the left in the first-half.

He slotted into a midfield three alongside Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice, however, during the second-half, with Said Benrahma moving out wide left.

And Moyes told reporters how that particular switch helped the Hammers get a foothold in the game, as quoted by Football.London:

“I thought the first half we didn’t play that well, but you’ve also got to remember that we’re coming back from a game on Thursday night. I always think that there is a chance that you can get off to a slow start [after Europe]. I’m not necessarily saying we were slow start. I just think that Liverpool were so good and caused us more problems but we did tweak it at halftime. We altered Pablo’s position a little bit and I thought the boys played really well in the second half and scored good goals and maybe a bit unlucky not to score more.”

Moyes is proving to be an absolutely brilliant manager isn’t he.


He did warn us about his brilliance on the day he took over…’It’s what I do, I win’.

What a time this is to be a West Ham fan.
