The Guinean striker received news earlier in the day that his father had passed away but resolved to turn out for the Reds that evening as a mark of respect and scored the winning goal of the game on the stroke of half-time, converting Rigobert Song's cross at the far post. 23 May 1989: Liverpool 5 West Ham 1 Just three days after beating Everton in the FA Cup Final at Wembley, the Reds secured three vital points and enhanced their goal difference significantly while relegating their luckless visitors in the process. The result meant that Arsenal, visitors to Anfield for the final game of the league season three days later, would have to win by two clear goals to pip Liverpool for the title, a task that would surely prove beyond them... 27 August 1984: Liverpool 3 West Ham 0 Treble winners Liverpool marked their first game at Anfield since beating AS Roma in the European Cup Final on their own ground in fine style by seeing off the Londoners easily, Paul Walsh marking his home debut by scoring after just 14 seconds with John Wark adding a brace in the second half.
