West Ham United 0-4 Liverpool - Goalscorers R. Kent (13), S. Ojo (26, 90+3) and S. Yesil (38)
Liverpool U21 move to the top of the Group One table last night after securing a remarkable 4-0 victory at West Ham United.
Whilst the second half didn’t quite match the first 45 minutes on entertainment, Sheyi Ojo capped off a fine game by firing home in the last minute of stoppage time to grab his second and Liverpool’s fourth.
Former Anfield hero John Aldridge was enthralled whilst watching on Liverpool TV and took to social networking site Twitter in order to credit both teams on a fascinating match.
