Photo: West Ham United defender James Collins hangs out with Russell Brand after 3-1 victory over Liverpool
James Collins and Russell Brand could have been swapping jokes about Liverpool’s defending after the West Ham United defender posed for a photo with the British comedian after Saturday’s win.
The Hammers were emphatic 3-1 winners against Brendan Rodgers’s side at Upton Park, putting on an impressive performance in front of one of their most famous supporters, Brand.
“With Russell yesterday after a great win #topman #irons” Collins posted on Instagram.
Rodgers’s side were 2-0 down inside seven minutes after Winston Reid rose above the Liverpool defence to break the deadlock before Diafra Sakho chipped Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
Liverpool, who registered a 2-1 victory over Ludogorets in the Champions League on Tuesday night, hit back through Raheem Sterling after the forward scored his third goal of the season.
However, the Reds couldn’t find a second-half equaliser, and Morgan Amalfitano capitalised on another defensive mix up to put the three points beyond doubt for the Hammers.
