December 7, 1957
Key note: “West Ham did what eight teams before them had failed to achieve when scoring against Liverpool at Anfield. Considering the difficult conditions this was an amazingly fast game, though with comparatively few goalmouth incidents, due to the dominance of the respective defences. The Hammers’ rearguard had most work to do and did it competently.” (Liverpool Echo: December 7, 1957)
