West Ham United 1-4 Liverpool: Premier League – as it happened

Mo Salah scored twice as Liverpool shredded an abysmal West Ham on the counter-attack at the London Stadium 7.21pm GMT Peep peep! That was a hideous 90 minutes for West Ham, who were routinely shredded on the counter-attack by an excellent Liverpool attack. It could have been worse than 4-1, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if Slaven Bilic lost his job during the international break. West Ham’s morale is at rock bottom. Thanks for your company, goodnight! 7.19pm GMT 90 min Lanzini…

The band plays on but dissatisfaction with the Premier League is growing | Jacob Steinberg

Many top-flight clubs have been stripped of the right to dream of anything grander than existing. The result is boredom in some places and anger in others Summer is a time of optimism for fans. The combination of new signings, managers and beginnings is the recipe for a heady, fantastical concoction. Forget about everything that went wrong in the 12 months before, the slate has been wiped clean. Hope trumps cynicism and …

Slaven Bilic mutes the mutiny at the last but West Ham’s battlers need a plan

The manager praised his side’s refusal to give up against Swansea but fraying tempers in the stands suggest fans’ favourite is using up the last of his goodwill Midway through the first half, Slaven Bilic switched his wingers. Michail Antonio went left, André Ayew went right. It was a sure sign that Bilic’s tactics were malfunctioning. In theory it made sense for West Ham United to start in a 4-4-2 system, which plays to the strengths of both Andy Carroll and Javier Hernández, …

It hurts but Tottenham’s blueprint could work for stagnating West Ham

Slaven Bilic’s side will bare their teeth against Spurs on Saturday while grudgingly admitting their rivals’ evolutionary process has its merits For West Ham United supporters, the notion their club could do worse than take inspiration from Tottenham Hotspur in their drive to evolve may seem like blasphemy.

Marko Arnautovic helps West Ham to easy victory over Bolton Wanderers

West Ham United could have been forgiven for checking the terms and conditions on the receipt when Marko Arnautovic pressed the self-destruct button in only his second match for the club. That preposterous red card against Southampton last month was certainly not what West Ham had in mind when they made him their record buy in the summer. They thought they were getting a player with the craft and guile to make them forget about Dimitri Payet, …

A Premier League season of soap opera where football felt like background music | Barney Ronay

The 2016-17 season still had its drama – moments of brilliance and booming narrative arcs to be resolved – but it was less title race than well-ordered title jog Farewell, then, to the year that almost was. This was a Premier League season that sparked with a controlled excitement, never quite caught fire but still dished up another digestible slice of high-end product. Things kept on almost happening. Leicester City almost completed the most dramatic title-plus-relegation act …

West Ham derail Tottenham’s title bid with Manuel Lanzini’s goal

Tottenham Hotspur’s title charge skidded to a halt at the London Stadium as Manuel Lanzini struck a second-half goal that was celebrated as lustily by Chelsea fans as it was by the West Ham faithful. Mauricio Pochettino’s men arrived on a nine-game winning streak and a mission to slash Chelsea’s lead at the top of the table to a single point but they performed sluggishly and left with nothing but regrets. Chelsea will be champions if they beat…

Adrián and Jack Butland star as Stoke City and West Ham hit stalemate

Stoke City and West Ham United shared the spoils in a goalless draw, as Jack Butland kept his first clean sheet since his return – and in front of watching England manager Gareth Southgate. The Potters reached the 40-point mark but they had no joy in an attacking sense, as Saido Berahino was denied a first goal for the club by Winston Reid’s fine block and Adrián’s terrific save.
