At times West Ham looked like a team of attacking terrors and Jürgen Klopp must stitch and mend his depleted defence before the trip to Old Trafford at the end of the month
As West Ham pressed forward with real vigour in the first half at the London Stadium there was something lurking just below the background noise, getting louder with every breakaway, every snatched chance. There it was again 10 minutes after half-time as Felipe Anderson dropped deep and turned away from Joël Matip like a man absent-mindedly swerving a discarded traffic cone: the sound of something starting to creak.
At the end of this tight, fretful 1-1 draw in the Stratford leisure zone it was hard to avoid the evidence of the last few weeks. As the title race enters its early endgame Liverpool look stretched in exactly the same place they were so brutally crisp and decisive for the first half of the season.
