Liverpool 2-1 West Ham: Super-sub Diogo Jota snatches late winner for Jurgen Klopp’s side came from behind to beat in-form Hammers at Anfield.
In an intriguing encounter, the Hammers took an early lead through Spanish midfielder Pablo Fornals‘ smart finish, which clipped the post on its way in after a poor headed clearance by Joe Gomez.
That was the 15th goal Liverpool have conceded in seven games this season – as many as Chelsea let in all season on their way to the title in 2004-05.
But the Reds, who gave a league debut to central defender Nathaniel Phillips in the absence of injured duo Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho, found it tough going.
Jota, a £41m signing from Wolves in September, netted in the 85th minute after a smart pass by fellow substitute Xherdan Shaqiri – moments after Jota had a goal disallowed for a foul.
Liverpool equalled a club record 63 league games unbeaten at Anfield set by Bob Paisley’s all-conquering side between February 1978 and December 1981.
