In fairness to West Ham, they refused to throw in the towel.
However he was thrown straight into the deep end for his debut against Liverpool, in front of a very hostile Anfield crowd that clearly had not forgotten about his past altercations there while playing for Man United. He fired in after the reds lost possession in the midfield. However, he did at times give Liverpool too much space to operate.
A third would be added by Liverpool just six minutes later, as Adrian misjudged a cross that allowed Roberto Firmino to walk the ball into the back of the net. Liverpool move up into second for now with Manchester United still to play.
Javier Hernandez has scored in three of his last four league games for West Ham. David Moyes has turned Hammers' fortunes around and ensured that for them, Saturday's game is a free-hit of sorts. A draw or win, however, would strengthen the Hammers' position out of the relegation zone.
The 100th came off an Emre Can header in the first half.
Shortly afterwards Liverpool's grip on the game tightened further when Can won the ball immediately from Adriana's kick up field and lifted it over the top of the West Ham defence for Firmino to chase.

Arnautovic drew a fine diving save from Karius with a second spectacular effort from distance to almost draw West Ham level against the run of play before the break.
Having endured a bad start to life in East London, Marko Arnautovic has been a player dramatically transformed under David Moyes' guidance. If the Reds wish to win easily on Saturday, they will need to keep the Pole in check.
The only injury absence is defender Nathaniel Clyne, who is recovering from a back problem. Emre Can could play instead of James Milner and Joel Matip could partner van Dijk in defense, instead of Dejan Lovren. Provided the assist for West Ham's goal. Arthur Masuaku remains suspended. Winston Reid is back training and is back in the squad. Their visitors are also in a pretty good form. He should have got a lot closer to Salah for Liverpool's second goal.
