Liverpool are on the charge to win their first league title in 30 years, and took another step towards it on Monday night.
Their clash against West Ham at Anfield saw the hosts take the lead inside 10 minutes, with a run of the mill victory looking on the cards.
But David Moyes’ side grabbed an equaliser shortly after. And with the scores level at the break, the Hammers went on to grab another goal and give themselves a chance of ending Liverpool’s bid to finish the season undefeated.
But it was not to be, with Lukasz Fabianski gifting the Reds an equaliser as he allowed Mohamed Salah’s shot to slip between his legs.

And when Sadio Mane added a finishing touch with 10 minutes remaining, it sealed another win for the Merseyside club, who have dropped just two points all season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are set for a record-breaking year in the Premier League, with Manchester City’s 100-point finish under threat and their bid to better Arsenal’s infamous Invincibles season of 2003/04.
But Chelsea hold one record that this Liverpool side will not break this season.
In Jose Mourinho’s first season at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea set a remarkable record of conceding just 15 goals in 38 Premier League matches.
It is a remarkable statistic, and one that Liverpool could potentially have matched this year. But the two goals they conceded in the win over West Ham mean they have now let in 17 goals in the league, and Chelsea’s extraordinary achievement will go unmatched for yet another season.
