Game over

Head on over to our main live page to follow the reaction to this game and all the rest of today's Premier League matches.

FULL-TIME

Liverpool 0-3 West Ham

It has been a long time coming for West Ham but they have their first victory at Anfield since 1963. It was fully deserved as well.

Liverpool had been so solid until today, but their own defensive mistakes, coupled with some incisive Hammers attacking led to their undoing.

The red cards will occupy some column inches but today should be all about a superb away display from West Ham.

John Hartson

Former Wales striker on Final Score

"Slaven Bilic needed a result, and they've gone to Liverpool and thoroughly deserved that scoreline."  

GOAL - Liverpool 0-3 West Ham

Diafra Sakho

If there was any doubt the points weren't heading to West Ham, it has been wiped out now. Diafra Sakho, who was a doubt to even play here after his arrest two months ago, fends off the attention of a number of Liverpool defenders and then slots a low shot into the corner. Anfield is emptying fast.

SUBSTITUTION for West Ham

Matt Jarvis for Dimitri Payet

Another West Ham change sees Matt Jarvis come on for Dimitri Payet. Surely West Ham have this game in the bag now. The Liverpool players look flat.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Dejan Lovren has a chance to make amends but pokes an effort wide at the far post following a head down from Christian Benteke.

SUBSTITUTION for West Ham

Reece Oxford for Manuel Lanzini

The 16-year-old comes on to give West ham greater numbers in the defensive part of their midfield and Manuel Lanzini, who has just been shown a yellow card, departs.

RED CARD for Mark Noble

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

The teams have been evened up. It is a controversial moment as well as Mark Noble slides in on Danny Ings with his studs up and gets a straight red. Noble complains, mainly because the whistle had already gone for a foul on him.

This gives Liverpool a sniff.

SUBSTITUTION for Liverpool

Jordan Ibe for Joe Gomez

Last change for Liverpool. Ibe has 12 minutes to make something happen.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Oh, it's nearly 3-0. Aaron Cresswell turns Joe Gomez inside out and then fires a shot from an angle in the box but Simon Mignolet saves at his near post. Three West Ham corners follow, with the last headed wide of goal by Winston Reid. That would have killed the game stone dead.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Liverpool have a free-kick wide right. Milner can deliver into the box. He does so and Christian Benteke rises to meet it but the whistle has gone for a foul on a Hammers defender. The groans of the home crowd have gone from outraged to resigned acceptance.

YELLOW CARD for Lucas

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Lucas lunges in on Mark Noble and picks up a card. That is born of frustration. No sign of a Liverpool comeback.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Danny Ings looks bright. He charges into the box to try and reach a one-two pass with Christian Benteke but Darren Randolph slides out to claim just ahead of the former Burnley man. The two-man attack is giving Liverpool more options up front, but the Reds need to score soon if they are going to make West Ham wobble.

John Hartson

Former Wales striker on Final Score

"Coutinho is incredibly unfortunate. He's slipped, it's totally accidental - not a yellow card for me."  

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

James Milner with a chance for Liverpool! The ball drops to him on the edge of the box off the boot of Danny Ings but the England man pulls his shot wide. Huge chance. Gone.

SUBSTITUTION for Liverpool

Danny Ings for Roberto Firmino

West Ham looking to strangle the life out of this game now. Cheikhou Kouyate challenges Simon Mignolet and takes a knock, dropping to the floor and ensuring play is broken up. In the meantime, on comes Danny Ings for his Liverpool debut in place of the ineffective Roberto Firmino. 

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Darren Randolph finally has a save to make as Roberto Firmini drives from distance. He does it with minimal fuss.

RED CARD for Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Now Liverpool are in big, big trouble. Philippe Coutinho, who was booked for dissent in the first half is shown a second yellow and then red card for sliding in on Dimitri Payet. It was a stupid challenge following an even more stupid failure to retreat from that free-kick before the break. Liverpool had a mountain to climb before, but now they'll have to do it without their strongest climber.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Take a bow Alberto Moreno. In his first meaningful action, the substitute dives in to prevent Cheikhou Kouyate getting in on goal during a West Ham break.

You suspect that will be the theme of this half as Liverpool press forward and the Hammers look to hit on the counter.

KICK-OFF

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

The game is back under way.

SUBSTITUTION for Liverpool

Alberto Moreno for Emre Can

Change for Liverpool as Can departs, surely through injury, and Moreno comes on. It will mean a change of system as well. Three at the back now for the home side.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Ian Dennis

BBC Radio 5 live senior football reporter at Anfield

"The scoreline at Anfield is no fluke. Liverpool's defence has been talked up but they've been breached twice and a mistake from Dejan Lovren for one of them will get plenty of attention."  

HALF-TIME

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

What a superb half from West Ham. They have harried, hassled and taken their chances when they came. In contrast, Liverpool have looked shambolic at one end and short of ideas at the other. They need to change something, and fast.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Liverpool have a corner to finish the half. James Milner takes it short and Philippe Coutinho loses the ball. That sums it up for the home side, who get a barrage of stick from their own fans.

To rub salt in Coutinho's wounds, he gets yellow carded soon after for not retreating from a free-kick.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Injury time. West Ham sitting pretty.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

As you can see, Roberto Firmino has not had much involvement in the game so far...

#bbcfootball Chambers 1st 45 mins on Monday night was inexperience what on earth are Lovren and Skirtel's excuse.

West Ham 0-2 Liverpool

Roberto Firmino's afternoon so far is summed up by him over-hitting a simple pass from the edge of the box to try and set up a cross for Nathaniel Clyne straight out of play. Big groans now from the frustrated home fans.

This game is going completely to plan for one of these sides. And it is not Liverpool.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Superb defending from West Ham as Philippe Coutinho looks to buy space for a shot but finds the door close as quickly as it was briefly edged open. Winston Reid and Angelo Ogbonna are rock solid at the moment.

YELLOW CARD

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Daniel Sturridge is suited and booted and in the stands at Anfield. He is reportedly close to returning to action. How Liverpool could do with him now. They've not had any punch in the West Ham box so far.

Mark Noble slides in on Emre Can. The West Ham midfielder limps away with a yellow card to his name.

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Mark Noble is understandably full of confidence at the moment. He attempts a long-range volley but misses the target by plenty. Still, worth a gamble when your side are two goals up.

2 - Mark Noble has scored in consecutive Premier League games for the first time. Placed.

John Hartson

Former Wales striker on Football Focus

 "Take nothing away from Mark noble's finish - he opens up his body and sidefoots it past Mignolet. It's a brilliant finish."    

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Dejan Lovren what were you doing? You can see on the goal graphic below how he loses the ball on the bye-line, allowing Manuel Lanzini to find goalscorer Mark Noble.  

Goal
Opta

Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

James Milner is lucky to avoid a yellow card as he lunges in to fell Cheikhou Kouyate on the edge of the West Ham box. The Hammers player needs some treatment but he will be OK. It would take an almighty crowbar to remove one of the West Ham players from this match now.

GOAL - Liverpool 0-2 West Ham

Mark Noble

Dejan Lovren, what have you done?! He gets in an almighty mess trying to control the ball on his own bye-line and allows Manuel Lanzini to nick the ball. The resulting low cross is cleared before Diafra Sakho can finish but Mark Noble makes no mistake with a follow-up finish, which he steers into the bottom corner of the net.

Liverpool's defending has gone from the sublime to the utterly ridiculous. West Ham boss Slaven Bilic affords a tiny smile. Inside he must be doing somersaults!

Liverpool 0-1 West Ham

West Ham on the break and Aaron Cresswell finds himself with space to shoot from the edge of the box but gets the ball under his feet and can only poke an effort over.

Liverpool may be having most of the play, but West Ham look dangerous on the break.

Liverpool 0-1 West Ham

Another corner for Liverpool, who continue to push forward. Christian Benteke feels he was being held as James Milner delivers but the referee ignores his protests as West Ham clear.
