Liverpool 3-2 West Ham: Narrow Liverpool win in a blockbuster match dooms West Ham to relegation zone

A record-breaking win for Liverpool saw Jurgen Klopp's men edge closer to lifting the Premier Lague title as they saw off West Ham 3-2 at Anfield.

The first half was full of chances and battles we all did not expect to see and the game was full of goals we all loved to watch.

Michail Antonio was a pain to Joe Gomez and at some point, the English international almost gave away a goal.

Here are the highlight from the game:

GOAL! LIVERPOOL 1-0 WEST HAM (Wijnaldum, 9)

It was another assist for Trent Alexander-Arnold after he kept the ball alive down the right. Georginio Wijnaldum got in front of his marker to flick his header beyond Fabianski.

Fabianski got a touch but he couldn't prevent the ball from hitting the net.

GOAL! LIVERPOOL 1-1 WEST HAM (Diop, 12)

A fast start to the game!

Just immediately after Liverpool scored, they conceded from a corner. A brilliant delivery towards the near post by Robert Snodgrass was met by Issa Diop who crashed his header past Alisson!

A close call for the Reds!

Half time: Liverpool 1-1 West Ham

The highlight of the half was that Liverpool finally conceded. Will there be more goals?

GOAL! LIVERPOOL 1-2 WEST HAM (Fornals, 55)

Mark Noble sent the ball out wide to Snodgrass before Rice's crossed it and it was crashed home by Fornals, who had just come on for injured Soucek.

It was a brilliant goal that stunned Anfield into silence!

GOAL! LIVERPOOL 2-2 WEST HAM (Salah, 68)

A bad Lukasz Fabianski moment led to an equalizer for the Reds. The ball went straight through his legs and Liverpool was off celebrating.

Andrew Robertson's cut-back was met by Mohamed Salah first-time, but his shot was straight at the West Ham goalkeeper! The ball squirmed horribly between his legs and Liverpool went level!

GOAL! LIVERPOOL 3-2 WEST HAM (Mane, 81)

The turnaround was completed for Liverpool, through Sadio Mane.

Gomez's shot was deflected off Noble and the ball fell into the path of Alexander-Arnold. Fabianski came off his line to meet the ball, but he was caught in no man's land and the full-back hoisted the ball over the top of him.

The ball dropped perfectly for Mane, who tapped it in.

(BOWEN CHANCE, 88)

Antonio played an exquisite ball through for Bowen who came on for Robert Snodgrass. Bowen timed his run perfectly to get in behind the Liverpool defense, but he could not convert it in a one on one with Alisson.
