Liverpool missed the chance to move five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table as they were held to a 1-1 draw away to West Ham.
Michail Antonio scored for West Ham to earn a point, and in the process the Hammers avoided a third consecutive defeat in the Premier League.
Liverpool went ahead through Sadio Mane at the London Stadium, although it was a clear offside in the build-up and the goal should have been disallowed.
Antonio levelled quickly for the home side. It was his fourth career goal against Liverpool leaving the league leaders just three points clear of Man City, who will face Everton at Goodison Park next.
The versatile forward took to social networking site Twitter after the game to express his reaction.
Never cut corners, always aim for them! Wanted to get the fans all three points tonight, support that’s shown week in week out deserves it, didn’t quite get there but we gave our all! ⚒ #COYI pic.twitter.com/Fy595vdiLH
