Liverpool 2-2 West Ham United

Liverpool and West Ham earned a point apiece following an engaging draw at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s side looked destined for victory after taking the lead on five minutes when Adam Lallana converted Sadio Mane’s cross.

But the visitors levelled on 27 minutes through Dimitri Payet's 25-yard free-kick, and edged ahead when Michail Antonio latched on to Havard Nordtveit’s deflected long ball, prodding past Loris Karius.

Joel Matip headed against the bar on the stroke of half-time, but Liverpool were on terms on 47 minutes when Divock Origi pounced on Darren Randolph’s error.

The third-placed Reds carved out numerous chances but could find no further breakthrough and so move on to 31 points, six behind leaders Chelsea. West Ham are 17th with 13.
