When it’s not your day, it’s just not your day. Jack Wilshere and Mark Noble suffered painful low-blows within two seconds of each other in West Ham’s 4-0 defeat by Liverpool on Super Sunday.
In the 65th minute at Anfield, with West Ham 3-0 down on the opening weekend of the season, new Hammers signing Wilshere got in the way of James Milner’s free-kick, before Noble did similar from Mo Salah’s rebound.
Both went down in pain, forcing referee Anthony Taylor to stop play, despite there being no head injuries apparent.
It was a day to forget for West Ham, with Mo Salah, Sadio Mane (2) and Daniel Sturridge on the score sheet to condemn Manuel Pellegrini’s side to a heavy defeat in his first competitive game as manager since joining in the summer.
