Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold said the match against West Ham United was a game they should have won because they have the quality to do so.

On Sunday, the Merseyside club conceded a 3-2 loss as the east London club leapfrogged Jurgen Klopp’s Reds into the third spot in the Premier League table.

Liverpool were looking to set a new club record of 26 games unbeaten when they traveled to the London Stadium, but they were in for a surprise as they fell behind early on when Alisson, under pressure from Angelo Ogbonna, trembled at Pablo Fornals' corner, eventually guiding the ball into his own net.

But, four minutes before half-time Liverpool drew level via England full-back Alexander-Arnold, who curled home a stunning free-kick after playing a short pass to forward Mohamed Salah.

Halfway through the second half, the Hammers regained their composure and retook the lead when Fornals slipped through on goal and found the target with a low strike that keeper Alisson could not save.

The home fans went wild and even more ecstatic when loanee Kurt Zouma headed home a corner minutes later to make it 3-1.

Substitute Divock Origi scored a second for the awayside but it wasn’t enough to seal a comeback as West Ham sealed all three points.

After the clash, Alexander-Arnold told BBC MOTD: "Massively (low). This is a game we thought we could win and we should be winning it with the quality we have got. We can and should win every game we go into.

"We had big chances in the last minute, a massive chance for Sadio Mane. We did not create too many clear-cut chances and not many do here.

"The first goal was a bit dubious, could have gone either way but the second was well worked. This is something we need to work on and teams will be looking at it as a weakness.

"We are probably going into the most crucial part of the season, The Christmas period so you will be punished if you perform poorly. It is important we keep looking forward.

"It is difficult to get it up and down from there (for the goal), I was staring at giants in the wall so it was Mo's idea to create an angle. It was a good finish."
