Two 1-0 wins and a goalless draw at Arsenal had gotten the Reds off to a solid enough start, albeit Christian Benteke’s winner against Bournemouth should have been ‘chalked off’ for offside – just as Aaron Ramsey’s early strike at the Emirates should have been, well, ‘chalked on’.
And they well and truly lost the plot here, trailing 0-2 by the half-time break and having the influential Philippe Coutinho sent off soon after.
For West Ham’s part, it was another shock result in a sequence that’s seen them somehow contrive to win 2-0 at Arsenal before losing back-to-back home games against Leicester City and Bournemouth.
Now kick back with a cuppa and enjoy these Liverpool jokes…

The good thing for Brendan Rodgers is that managing Liverpool has not aged him. He looks younger each year. And more surprised.

As post-match analysis goes, Ruud Gullit's assertion that "Liverpool need a new stadium" is quite a bold, all-encompassing statement

@Zonal_Marking 'stadium' is Dutch for 'manager', right?
