Many West Ham fans on Twitter are clear on the way they want to see the team play against Liverpool, with a bold, attacking style.

And why the hell not? The defensive gameplan failed to work against Man City, so why would we try the same thing at Anfield?

We’ve got the players back now, so why don’t we just go for it with Felipe Anderson, Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals?

Defensive substitutions can always be ordered later in the game if things have gone amazingly well and if they haven’t, they haven’t.

As one supporter pointed out, one extra point outweighs any goal difference advantage and we should be trying to pick up as many points as possible. Plus, we’ve hardly got the worst goal difference at the bottom anyway.

Another fan stated that a defensive mindset admits defeat before a ball has even been kicked and another suggested that negative tactics hurt the team’s mentality.
