The win sees West Ham move up to seventh in the Premier League standings, while Liverpool drops to sixth spot.
Of the remainder, only Emre Can, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren have started a match this season.
Dejan Lovren admits he has to prove himself this season after another mistake put his Liverpool future in question.
Coutinho will miss Liverpool’s crunch trip to Manchester United on September 12, and Carragher concedes his absence could be costly.
West Ham, however, who have lost their previous two games, destroyed the Merseysiders with three goals from Lanzini, Mark Noble Diafra Sakho after a masterclass of counter-attacking football.
“There is a long way to go yet”.
“That is what inspired us for this match, winning so well at The Emirates”, he said. “At this level, you have to be able to bounce back – and that’ll be the job in the next game“.
Rodgers claimed that he will do no further business in what has been a busy transfer market before the window closes on Tuesday.
“Our confidence had been really high until today, but a lot of this defeat was self-inflicted”, lamented Rodgers, who found no answer to West Ham’s deep defensive block. The lack of ability to score frustrates the home side, also the fans and thus in attempt to try harder lose their grip over the defense.
“We have seven points from 12”.
At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea secured the title with a 1-0 defeat of Palace on May 3 but the Eagles were triumphant on this occasion, stunning the hosts just when they thought Radamel Falcao had got them back into the game with his first goal for the Blues.
“I got a straight red, but I’ve watched it 10 times and there’s no malice in it whatsoever”.
But Lovren insisted that there was very little he could do to make up for the error and said he had to keep his head up and continue playing the rest of the game.
“Our main emphasis was getting the second balls, because against Bournemouth we didn’t win any of them”. When you play at home your opponent is like that and they want you to come and then organization is not enough.
Having given the ball away while looking to run through midfield, Lovren wasted two opportunities to clear his lines under pressure from Lanzini, whose attempted cut-back fell to Noble on the edge of the box and the away captain swept home a calm finish.
‘We need to keep our heads up’
“We need to show up for the lesser sides as well”. We’re not going to panic, it’s not time to panic, it’s still early days. He does things in his own way. All of a sudden we’re 2-0 down.
