It looked like Jurgen Klopp's halftime speech to the boys had done the job as Liverpool were playing aggressive and on the front foot. They soon turned a 1-0 halftime deficit into a 2-1 lead and looked to be in the ascendancy.

However, once again, they were undone by a defensive lapse as Jarrell Quansah was beaten in the air by Michail Antonio as the Jamaica international headed home the leveler.

It's more two points dropped and not one gained away from home as now the Reds must shift their focus to securing Champions League football over chasing the league title.

See how the players rated in this one.

Alisson - 6.5/10 - He made some very, very good saves in this one. Yet, he also looked nervous on a few occasions. Misjudged an easy catch that turned into an open play which led to the West Ham second goal.

Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6/10 - It was not a brilliant day from Trent as his passes looked to be inches away as he just couldn't find his range. Stung the palms of the keeper in the 1st half. Subbed.

Jarrell Quansah - 6.5/10 - He was rock solid as has become his norm this season. Dealt with the physical Antonio well for most of the day. Lost to his counterpart in the 2nd on the equalizer though.

Virgil van Dijk - 6/10 - Not a lot of the West Ham attack was targeted at the Liverpool Captain. When called upon, he was solid. Tried to be a vocal leader and fire his side up, but to no avail.

Andy Robertson - 7/10 - Was one of the few that played with any desire in the first half. His deliveries were off early, but progressivley got better. Did well to cushion his volley home for the opener. Willing runner throughout.

Alexis Mac Allister - 6/10 - He saw a lot of the ball in this one but did not really do a lot with it. Moved the ball along well in the attacking third but too often was bypassed in the midfield. Looked frustrated near the end.

Wataru Endo - 6.5/10 - This was a bit better from Endo as he snapped into tackles and won the ball regularly. Got the attacks moving as best he could. Faded as the game wore on but a solid day. Subbed.

Ryan Gravenberch - 7/10 - It was another confidence building day from the Dutchman as he was popping up all over the final 1/3 in this one. Put himself in dangerous spots and created chances for others. Keep him in the XI.

Harvey Elliott - 5/10 - Aside from hitting the crossbar late on, there was not much to remember about this performance from Elliott. He got the start in place of Mohamed Salah but failed to take his chance. A willing runner but nothing more today.

Cody Gakpo 7/10 - Gakpo led the line well and was constantly probing the Hammers defense. His shot led to the own goal for Liverpool's second. He was beaten by Bowen in the first half for their opener. Was always driving the side forward.

Luis Diaz - 6.5/10 - He was at his creative and inventive best, even recording an assist for Robbo's goal. His dribbling was a nightmare for Coufal to deal with on more than one occasion. Still missing his finishing boots. Subbed.


Joe Gomez - 5/10 - It was another forgettable outing off the bench for Gomez. Stumbled and gave the ball away with a chance to put an early cross in late on.

Mohamed Salah - 6/10 - The Egyptian did the best he could with the little time given to him to try and rescue the game. Made a vintage long field run on the ball before his pass let him down at the end.

Darwin Nunez - 5/10 - Did almost nothing after coming on with 10 to go alongside Salah. Teed up Elliott for his long range strike to hit the bar. Otherwise, not offered many chances to rescue things.
