Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League table with a late goal that secured victory over West Ham United at Anfield.
Liverpool laboured to try and break through West Ham’s obdurate 4-5-1 formation in the second half. They looked to have done it in the 77th minute when Diogo Jota tapped home a rebound, but the goal was cancelled after a VAR review for a foul by Sadio Mane on Lukasz Fabianski. Jota would not be denied eight minutes later however, when a cool finish from a superb Xherdan Shaqiri pass secured all three points.
The victory moves Liverpool above Everton and into first place, while West Ham remain in 13th in the table.
