WEST HAM 2-1 LIVERPOOL - SUMMARY

If such a thing exists, I imagine this is The West Ham Way fans have been referring to for so many years. It was a brilliant first-half performance from the Hammers and they could easily be going into half-time with a few more goals. Liverpool are nowhere near the standard of last season and have produced a display similar to their defeat against Aston Villa last week. Time to step up...

HALF-TIME: West Ham 2-1 Liverpool

18:19 BST

TIME'S TICKING...

It looks like we'll be heading into half-time with West Ham leading 2-1. The best chance in added time sees Enner Valencia have a free kick deflected away by the Liverpool wall.

ADDED TIME

We'll have SIX minutes added on following that head injury to Dejan Lovren.

STERLING WATCH

Raheem Sterling wasn't introduced until the hour-mark of last week's defeat to Aston Villa. Liverpool can have no excuses today, though - they've been poor all match. Can they really afford to lose a third league game already this season?

WEST HAM ON THE ATTACK

Sam Allardyce promised to bring exciting, attacking football this season and I don’t think the West Ham fans can have any arguments so far. They’ve been fantastic. The latest attack sees Mark Noble delay shooting from the edge of the box before finding the lively Diafra Sakho on the right-hand side of the area. He’s soon crowded out, though, and Liverpool clear the danger.

LOVREN INJURY

Dejan Lovren is down for over two minutes after clashing heads with team-mate Mamadou Sakho. He walks off the pitch with an ice pack held to the side of his head and continues to receive treatment on the touchline. He’ll return to action with a bandage around his head.

KOUYATE WATCH

The West Ham midfielder attempts to get on the end of an excellent Diafra Sakho backheel inside the Liverpool six-yard box but only succeeds in two-footing Alberto Moreno. He receives a booking for his troubles and then goes down moments later with an injury. It looked as though he would have to come off but is continuing for now.

VIEW FROM UPTON PARK

Liam Twomey reports: “Brendan Rodgers shares little in common with Jose Mourinho in terms of managerial style but he has employed one of the Portuguese's favoured tactics here, making his disgust for his team's defending abundantly clear by hauling off Javi Manquillo for Mamadou Sakho and switching from a 4-4-2 diamond to a 3-5-2, with Raheem Sterling moving to wing-back in a bid to exploit West Ham's lack of attacking width. The ploy does not take long to pay dividends as Sterling smashes Liverpool back into this match.”

WEST HAM 2-1 LIVERPOOL - STERLING GOAL

GOAL: They’re back in it! Raheem Sterling gets the goal but Mario Balotelli plays a huge part in the build-up. The Italian does brilliantly to bring the ball under control before having his shot blocked by Aaron Cresswell. It then falls kindly on the edge of the box for Raheem Sterling to find the far corner. It's up for grabs now!

VALENCIA KNOCK

Enner Valencia requires treatment after colliding with the right shoulder of Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. He goes off to receive further treatment on the sidelines but should be okay to continue.

SUBSTITUTION - SAKHO ON, MANQUILLO OFF

Oh my. Twenty-one minutes in and Brendan Rodgers has seen enough. Off goes Javier Manquillo, who doesn’t appear to have an injury, and on comes Mamadou Sakho. It's now a back three of Skrtel-Lovren-Sakho with Steven Gerrard in front.

BALOTELLI v ADRIAN: ROUND ONE

We have a stand-off! Is frustration getting the better of Mario Balotelli? The striker gets in a scuffle with West Ham goalkeeper Adrian. He receives a completely unnecessary kick from the Spaniard and appears to try to grab his goalkeeper top. The two then go nose-to-nose before the referee separates them and books both players. Tut, tut.

WEST HAM IN CONTROL

Incredible opening to the game at Upton Park. It could be 3-0 already but Simon Mignolet gets down well to palm away a dangerous effort from Aaron Cresswell towards the bottom right-hand corner. Liverpool are struggling and it’s all West Ham so far.

VIEW FROM UPTON PARK

Liam Twomey reports: “The Upton Park crowd are notoriously volatile but they can make life very difficult for a visiting team if given something to cheer, and they are absolutely roaring now. A classic Sam Allardyce training ground routine has exposed Liverpool's chronic weakness at set-pieces while a moment of brilliance from Diafra Sakho has given the visitors a mountain to climb. Is this the first of many Champions League hangovers this season or are Brendan Rodgers' men simply in shock?”

WEST HAM 2-0 LIVERPOOL - SAKHO GOAL

GOAL: What a start by West Ham! Diafra Sakho clips what looks to be a cross over to Enner Valencia at the far post from the right-hand side of the area. There’s not a lot the Liverpool defenders can do about it and the ball floats over the head of Simon Mignolet and finds the far corner without Valencia even getting a touch. Two-nil!
