West Ham United showed that their place in the Premier League's top four was fully warranted as they outmuscled Liverpool for a memorable 3-2 victory at a rocking London Stadium on Sunday.

Victory for high-flying West Ham ended Liverpool's 25-match unbeaten run in all competitions and lifted them above Juergen Klopp's side into third place in the table.

An own goal by keeper Alisson gave West Ham a dream start, but Liverpool went in level at halftime thanks to a superb Trent Alexander-Arnold free kick.

Craig Dawson hit the bar for West Ham early in the second half as Liverpool wobbled at the back, before Pablo Fornals restored West Ham's lead in the 66th minute when he was played through and his shot evaded Alisson.

Alisson was found wanting again eight minutes later when Kurt Zouma headed in West Ham's third in the 74th minute.

Substitute Divock Origi gave Liverpool a lifeline with a shot on the turn in the 82nd minute, but the hosts clung on for a memorable victory.

West Ham have 23 points from 11 games, with Juergen Klopp's side one point behind them.
