Robert Snodgrass starred for West Ham United on Monday night as the Hammers almost upset the odds against Liverpool at Anfield, before Jurgen Klopp’s side came back to win 3-2 – and Leeds fans have applauded their former winger on Twitter.
West Ham went 2-1 up in the second half through Spanish midfielder Pablo Fornals and looked in a good position to keep Liverpool at bay, before Klopp’s Premier League leaders went up a gear – and secured all three points.
Liverpool took the lead early on through Georginio Wijnaldum, as he headed in Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross – but £10million signing (Sun) Snodgrass was on hand to lay on an assist of his own. His outswinging cross was headed in by Issa Diop.
Fornals made it 2-1 to West Ham after the restart, but a mistake from Lukasz Fabianski saw Mo Salah equalise. Alexander-Arnold was on hand to nab his second assist of the night to secure all three points for Liverpool, handing Sadio Mane a tap-in.
West Ham, though, fought bravely and were unlucky not to have rescued even a point from the match. Snodgrass, certainly, was one of West Ham’s better players – as he took his goal involvement to 10 this season in just 24 league games.
The 32-year-old is fondly remembered by Leeds fans after he scored 41 goals and created 40 more in 187 outings for the Whites during a four-year spell between 2008 and 2012. With promotion a possibility, some even want him back at Elland Road.
Snoddy a great player….
