BBC Sport - Liverpool 2-0 West Ham: Sam Allardyce blames injuries

Allardyce blames injuries for defeat

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce blames his side's defensive injuries for a 2-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

The Hammers fell behind to a Raheem Sterling goal, before substitute Daniel Sturridge, playing for the first time since August, wrapped up the three points.

Defeat extended West Ham's miserable run at Anfield where they have not won in their last 42 visits - a run stretching back to September 1963.
