League of Legends: Liverpool wins because of own goals from Faes; Again, West Ham loses

He helped Liverpool come from behind to beat Leicester 2-1 on Friday, despite both teams making mistakes on defense. Wout Faes, a Leicester defender, had a night to remember as Liverpool closed the gap on the top four teams in the Premier League at the end of the year. He helped Liverpool come from behind to beat Leicester 2-1 on Friday, despite both teams making mistakes on defense.

After a difficult start to the season, Liverpool has won four straight games and is now just two points behind Tottenham, who are in fourth place going into 2023. A tribute to Pele, who passed away on Thursday at the age of 82, will begin both games, as will the rest of the games this weekend.
At Anfield, Liverpool allowed Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to run straight down the middle of the field unopposed after a long goal kick to chip the ball over Alisson Becker, giving the hosts the lead in the fourth minute.

But Faes gave Liverpool’s forwards some much-needed assistance on a night when they were frequently off-target. Before halftime, the Belgian center-back had a disastrous seven-minute stretch in which he first ignored a shout from Danny Ward, his goalkeeper, to leave a low cross from Alexander-Arnold, and then lunged in to attempt a clearance only to mishit the ball, causing it to loop over Ward and into the far post.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain then played Darwin Nunez through on goal, and he dinked a shot over Ward that bounced back off the far post. The back-following Faes attempted to clear the ball however just prevailed with regards to pounding it into the net — and afterward needed to persevere through insults of “shoot” from the Liverpool fans each time he contacted the ball. Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Leicester, stated, “He’s a strong character, and he will get over that this evening.”

Although Jurgen Klopp’s team’s performance was far from exceptional, Liverpool has won four straight league games for the first time since April. “It’s all about collecting three points and trying to get into a position in the league where we feel like we need to be and haven’t been this season,” said Liverpool defender Trent Alexander Arnold. “When you think back, you realize that you needed these to win.

It doesn’t really matter if you win well or poorly.” After outplaying Brentford for a lot of the game but still losing, West Ham would be happy to get an ugly win. After Josh Dasilva and Ivan Toney scored in the first half to hand Moyes yet another devastating defeat, the team was booed off the field. Brentford moved to 10th, albeit the success included some significant downfalls as Toney left on a cot in stoppage time in the wake of landing clumsily. “He had some aggravation, ideally nothing serious,” Brentford said of Toney, who scored his thirteenth objective of the time.
