Nunez’s Strike Helps Liverpool Sink West Ham

By: Highcelebritysquard 



Liverpool beat West Ham United by a lone goal from Nunez who fired just over from Thiago Alcantara’s pass.

Nunez opened the scoring in the 22nd minute as Uruguay forward met Kostas Tsimikas’s cross with a header that arrowed inside the far post.

Almost netting again two minutes later, Nunez pounced on a West Ham mistake and forced a good stop from Lukasz Fabianski.

Nunez was inches away from doubling Liverpool’s lead with a fierce volley from 12 yards that smacked off the post.

After all their pressure, Liverpool nearly surrendered the lead on the stroke of half-time.

Joe Gomez’s needless barge into Bowen was deemed a penalty after referee Stuart Attwell checked the pitchside monitor.

But when Bowen picked himself up to take the spot-kick, he saw his effort well saved by Alisson.

Henderson’s drive was tipped over by Fabianski early in the second half, with Nunez motoring past Thilo Kehrer to fire narrowly off-target moments later.

Despite that flourish, West Ham finished strongly and Said Benrahma almost snatched an equaliser when he shot straight at Alisson after Gomez misjudged a cross.

Tomas Soucek looked certain to equalise in the final minutes but a brilliant block from James Milner preserved the points for Liverpool.
