Sam Allardyce gave his most delighted after match interview in years as he lauded his team to the skies after the 3-1 win over Livberpool.
And let it be said right away that the manager takes all the credit for setting up a team which played in such a thrilling fashion.
Beaming Allardyce declared: “This was not Liverpool having an off day. This was about West Ham United being absolutely brilliant.” HE WASN’T WRONG!
The Hammers took the game to the visitors from the start and were two up early on through goals from a Winston Reid close range effort on 70 seconds and a beautiful chip from Diafra Sakho.
Raheem Sterling reduced the arrears in the 26th minute but sub Morgan Amaltitano made the points safe in the 88th for the Hammers.
It truly was wonderful stuff and Allardyce said: “Stewart Downing’s cross for the first was brilliant and caught every one out whilst Sakho’s second was an effort of outstanding individual quality.
“I was a bit disappointed because Liverpool only had one shot on target in the first half and scored whilst we could have had three or four.
To beat one of the big teams like that was absolutely great and it wasn’t about them having a bad day – it was about an absolutely brilliant performance by West Ham United Football Club”
