The Hammers defended resolutely and were unlucky not to end their 50-year wait for a victory at Anfield.
“It should have been our first win at Anfield in 50 years, shouldn’t it?” said manager Sam Allardyce following the game. “As delighted as we are for the West Ham fans travelling back home thinking ‘What a great point that is’ - and it is a great point - the disappointing thing is that we know we should have won it with the chances we had.
“Because the chances were clear-cut compared to Liverpool’s chances, that’s why I’m disappointed we didn’t win. That said, I’m delighted with our outstanding performance, particularly the defenders keeping Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard and all those people quiet.
“We didn’t given them opportunities to score and that’s why it was a really good performance.”
