Liverpool fight back to sink Hammers 3-2
LONDON (AFP) - Liverpool staged an impressive fightback as the Reds scored twice in the closing stages to secure a 3-2 win over West Ham at Upton Park on Sunday.
Brendan Rodgers' side were in danger of suffering the latest setback of a disappointing campaign after Mark Noble's penalty and a Steven Gerrard own goal put the Hammers 2-1 up following former West Ham player Glen Johnson's early opener.
But, to their credit, Liverpool dug deep to equalise through another Hammers old boy Joe Cole before West Ham defender James Collins turned a Jordan Henderson cross into his own net with 11 minutes remaining.
Liverpool's second successive Premier League win lifted them up to 10th place and remarkably they are now within four points of the top four despite their early-season struggles.
