West Ham United fans were on a high following their 1-0 win against arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur last week, which ultimately ended Spurs’ title hopes, and they would have been expecting a similar performance when they welcomed Liverpool to the London Stadium on Sunday.
While they were organised and hurried and harried Mauricio Pochettino’s men, the Irons players failed to do the same against the Reds and they paid the price by finding themselves on the end of a convincing 4-0 scoreline.
It was the latest in a long line of poor showings from the team at their new home this term, and it is a result that could once again increase the pressure on manager Slaven Bilic, whose position has come under scrutiny in recent months.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the result via social media, and they were furious with the abject performance against Jurgen Klopp’s side and the campaign as a whole.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
@WestHamUtd if we're forgetting performances like that then I'll only remember about 3 games this season
