LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -- Liverpool's hopes of qualifying for Europe experienced a setback as the team failed to break down West Ham's stubborn defense in a 0-0 draw on Sunday.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard came closest to a winner when his effort was cleared off the line by James Tomkins.

And Lucas Leiva denied West Ham a first win at Anfield in 50 years when he turned away Jack Collison's header five minutes from the end.

The draw left Liverpool seventh, a place below what is set to be the final Europa League qualification place.
