West Ham's Darren Randolph: Key save did not atone for earlier mistake

Darren Randolph did not feel his crucial save in West Ham's 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield made up for the error that led to the home side's equaliser.

The Republic of Ireland international dropped the ball at Divock Origi's feet early in the second half and the Belgian levelled the scores after the Hammers had led 2-1 at the break.

Liverpool dominated for much of the remainder of the contest after drawing level three minutes after the break, but could not find a winner as Randolph pulled off a superb stop to keep out Jordan Henderson's long-range effort.

"We'd managed to get ourselves ahead in the game -- I was a bit disappointed,'' Randolph told Sky Sports when asked about Liverpool's second goal.

Asked whether the save from Henderson made up for that error, he added: "It does not really matter. It's one of those things that happened, move on.''

The result took West Ham out of the bottom three and Randolph said the players needed to build on it and climb the Premier League table.

"We just need to keep pushing on,'' he said. "It's massive, we're playing to get out of the situation we're in.

"It's [the draw with Liverpool] is a show of character, and shows that we've got the right players to do it.''

Adam Lallana had put Liverpool ahead inside five minutes but under-fire goalkeeper Loris Karius failed to stop a Dimitri Payet's free-kick and Michail Antonio then gave the visitors the lead before Origi struck.
