WHO'S GOING TO BE YOUR

MAN OF THE MATCH?

Match summary

Diogo Jota came off the bench to earn Liverpool a 2-1 win over West Ham United that helped the champions equal an Anfield record.

Pablo Fornals had put West Ham in front on 10 minutes, when he collected a Joe Gomez clearance and struck in a low shot.

Liverpool's increasing pressure paid off three minutes before half-time thanks to Mohamed Salah's penalty after the Egyptian had been fouled by Arthur Masuaku.

After the break, Fornals saw one shot saved and another blocked by Andrew Robertson.

Shortly after having a goal overturned on 77 minutes after the VAR had spotted a foul in the build-up, Jota scored the winner.

Fellow substitute Xherdan Shaqiri played him in to finish and send Liverpool top on 16 points as they equalled their longest unbeaten home run of 63 matches.

West Ham stay 13th as their four-match unbeaten run was ended.
