Liverpool clinched the victory from the jaws of defeat and took a giant stride towards ending their long-awaited Premier League trophy wait after defeating West Ham United by a scoreline of 3-1 at Anfield. With this victory, Liverpool goes 22 points clear of Manchester City and are just 4 victories away from sealing the Premier League title in a quick possible fashion.
On the other hand, the defeat for the Hammers meant that they will end the week in the relegation zone with 24 points from 27 games. They are a point behind Aston Villa who are also fighting the relegation battle. Liverpool won their 21st straight home game breaking the previous record in the English top tier which was set by themselves in 1972.
Liverpool started the proceedings in a great fashion when Wijnaldum scored a header in the ninth minute when Trent Alexander Arnold whipped a cross from the right flank. However, the runaway leaders’ joy couldn’t stay long as the relegation fighting West Ham equalized from Issa Diop’s angling header which was a regular save for Alisson.
