West Ham Utd v Liverpool: live

By: Staff Writer


West Ham can return to the top six of the Premier League by beating Liverpool at the Boleyn Ground this afternoon.

Eighth at the start of the weekend, Sam Allardyce's side dropped two places thanks to wins for Arsenal and a draw for Stoke but remain in the top ten where they have been since the start of the season.

And a win today over a resurgent Liverpool team, who are currently four places below West Ham in 14th spot would take United above Stoke, Swansea, Everton and Arsenal.

For those unable to attend the match in person, live updates from the Boleyn Ground will be provided throughout the afternoon on our forum match thread, which may be found here: www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=144721.

''As all West Ham fans - totally gutted to have lost today - especially as we dominated the match and should have put it to bed at 2-1. They had just a few attempts on goal - albeit that they were good shots - the third was a bit jammy, but it seems we have a mixture of class and those lacking talent.

Cole was outstanding, Diame, Noble, Jarvis, Jussi and Nolan brilliant, Collins gives 100%, but then we have the likes of Taylor who works real hard, but has the ball control of a donkey. I don't rate Maiga either, without Cole, now that Carroll is out I can't see us scoring.''
