We have compiled a four-man shortlist for Man of the Match after another dogged display by the Barclays Premier League leaders.
Shinji Kagawa assisted both goals and was starting to look the part in a central role after a tactical reshuffle moved him inside. Although substituted for Javier Hernandez, there were definite signs that the summer signing is going to become a key player for the Reds.
Michael Carrick was his usual accomplished self on his old stamping ground as his piercing passes looked to expose any frailties in the Hammers' defence, while Antonio Valencia showed plenty of sparkle and, of course, opened his account for the season.
Nemanja Vidic had his hands full with Andy Carroll, and was still convinced he was elbowed by the bruising target man after the final whistle, but made a number of key headed clearances and was up for the battle.
