West Ham thwarts Liverpool's title ambitions with dramatic draw

Posted : 27 April 2024

West Ham dealt a significant blow to Liverpool's dwindling Premier League title aspirations with a hard-fought 2-2 draw at the London Stadium. Despite Jarrod Bowen giving the home team the lead just before halftime, Liverpool responded strongly after the break, with Andy Robertson leveling the score.


A bizarre own goal by Alphonse Areola momentarily put Liverpool in front, but Michail Antonio's equalizer in the 77th minute ensured West Ham salvaged a point. With this result, Liverpool remains third in the table with 75 points, trailing behind Manchester City by one point, who have two games in hand, while leaders Arsenal hold a two-point lead over them with a game in hand.


The match started with Liverpool dictating the tempo, but the energy gradually faded, leading to a flat atmosphere at the London Stadium. Despite a few lively moments towards the end of the first half, including Luis Diaz hitting the post and Allison Becker making a sharp save, it was Bowen's header that broke the deadlock for West Ham.


Liverpool showed renewed determination in the second half, quickly restoring parity through Robertson's goal. However, they found themselves behind again after Cody Gakpo's shot ricocheted off several players into the net. Antonio's late equalizer dashed Liverpool's hopes of securing a vital win, leaving them with a challenging path to the league title.


While West Ham's David Moyes remains uncertain about his future, their European qualification aspirations remain alive, showcasing the unpredictable nature of the Premier League season. Meanwhile, Liverpool's pursuit of a quadruple title haul appears to be slipping away, raising questions about Jurgen Klopp's final season at the helm amidst inconsistent form and recent cup exits.
