Liverpool 0 Vs West Ham United 0

West Ham James Collins was man of the match today, he has been one of the only defenders to visit Anfield this season and shut out Luis Suarez. Although the reds  forward did force an injury-time save from Jussi Jaaskelainen at the goalkeeper's near post with a low shot.
The draw leaves us in seventh, three points behind the blue noses having played an extra match.

The central-defensive pairing of Collins and James Tomkins were crucial to securing West Hams clean sheet today, as Fat Sam earned a first point in his last nine games against the Reds.

The match had been preceded by a minute's silence in the last game at Anfield before the 24th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster on 15 April.

When the action got under way, the reds had the majority of possession and looked the more threatening going forward, without creating any clear-cut chances.

And it was West Ham who went close to taking the lead when midfielder Mohamed Diame, showed his quality, beat four defenders inside the box before hammering a strike over the bar.

Frustrations increased when Daniel Sturridge, who replaced Stewart Downing midway through the first half, saw his shot on the turn saved at the far post on the stroke of half-time.

After the break, the reds increased the pressure but the visitors held firm, Tomkins blocking a goal-bound Steven Gerrard effort just in front of the line.

We did have the ball in the net when Sturridge turned in Jordan Henderson's shot only for the goal to be disallowed for offside.
West Ham thought they should have had a penalty for a Jose Enrique tackle on Tomkins, who then might have conceded a spot-kick himself for a challenge on Gerrard.
