The Heat Is On As Liverpool Keep Title-Chase Pressure On Manchester City.
Liverpool Win’s At Home, 1 : 0 Against West Ham United This Evening.
Liverpool kept pressure on Manchester City in the title race on Saturday evening as they secured a narrow 1-0 victory over West Ham United at Anfield.
The Reds almost got off to the dream start as Trent Alexander-Arnold picked out Mohamed Salah, but the Egypt international’s effort was too close to Lukasz Fabianski who denied him from putting Liverpool into the lead. Alexander-Arnold enjoyed his best game of the season on the day as he continued to be involved in all of Liverpool’s positive moves.
Naby Keita found the right-back in space who drilled the ball into the danger area for Sadio Mane to apply the finishing touch for the opening goal. West Ham were unlucky not to score as they threatened on the counter-attack, and they forced Jurgen Klopp’s defence to be at their best to earn the cleansheet on the day. First Alexander-Arnold’s heroics kept the score the same heading into the break from Pablo Fornals’ chip over Alisson, while Andy Robertson and Keita combined to stop a glowing chance for Michail Antonio.
Salah was eventually replaced for Diogo Jota on a day where he didn’t seem to have his shooting boots on, but the Reds were able to hold on despite a very respectable performance from David Moyes’ side. Klopp’s system created plenty of opportunities and his timing of substitutions helped take the sting out of the game.
Liverpool managed to find the back of the net and held on till the blast of the final whistle. they took all three points and are right on the tail of Man’ City. Points difference between the two teams is three, there are still few matches to be played before end of the season. They are in a good position to win the premiership if they can keep up with their winning ways.
