Dreadful mistakes were made as third placed Liverpool took on out of form West Ham. The match was error strewn on both ends as the two teams played out a very entertaining 2-2 draw on Sunday.
Divock Origi, salvaged a point for Liverpool as he scored in the 48th as West Ham stopper, Darren Randolph fumbled the ball as he attempted to catch it. Origi waited like a predator and put it in quickly before the defender could get to him.
The Belgian international has now netted in four consecutive matches as he saved the Reds from a defeat at home.
Adam Lallana opened the scoring as Sadio Mane put in a low cross which Lallana controlled and slotted it into the goal with his left foot.
The equaliser came from Dimitri Payet with one of his signature free kicks as he capitalized on Karius bad positioning as he put it into the bottom left corner of the goal. Lately Karius has been making quite a few mistakes with this goal certainly not helping his cause.
Michail Antonio put West Ham in front as he capitalized on Joel Matip’s mistake. The hesitant Karius came out but suddenly stopped as the English international put it past him.
The visitors went into the break one goal up but that changed in the 48th minute as Divock Origi made it 2-2.
Jordan Henderson was looking to recreate his fantastic goal against Chelsea as he hit a shot but was denied by Randolph as he pulled up a superb diving save.
The rest of the game was a stalemate with no goals scored but some there were some chances created.
One thing that was very notable was Karius’s hesitance and his errors.
Also Liverpool’s defense made quite many errors some of which resulted in a goal for their opponents.
Will Liverpool’s defense get better or will Klopp delve into the transfer window to buy new centre backs?
