In a surprising see-saw affair, Liverpool came from behind to beat West Ham 3-2 at Anfield to close within 12 points of their first league title in 30 years.

It looked as though the Reds was going to roll on with ease when Gini Wijnaldum headed home the first goal in the ninth minute of play. Yet, within three minutes the Hammers had equalised with an excellently executed corner kick.

Employing the same tactics they used against Manchester City, West Ham challenged the Reds’ resolve and asked plenty of questions despite playing for long stretches without the ball. Their dogged defending helped them reach halftime at 1-1.

After the break, West Ham substitute Pablo Fornals shocked the Anfield Road end with a sneaky strike to give the visiting side two goals, a feat no side had achieved since Everton did it at the beginning of December in the derby.

The Reds responded by ratcheting up the pace and pressure for the final 30 minutes, forcing the visitors deeper. Mo Salah’s equaliser may have spilt over the line, but the Hammers were just hanging on.

Not to be undone, Sadio Mane capped the comeback tapping in a looping ball from Trent Alexander-Arnold for the match-winner. The best goal of the night was scored minutes with the same pair involved only to be correctly overruled for Mane being just offside.

Here are four findings from the match.
