Liverpool go top
In the Premier League, Liverpool jumped to the top of the Premier League after coming from behind to beat West Ham United 2-1.
Pablo Fornals gave the Hammers the lead after 10 minutes but Mohamed Salah equalised three minutes before half-time from the penalty spot after being fouled by Arthur Masauku in the area. It was Liverpool’s first shot on target in the game and Salah’s eighth league goal of the season.
Substitutes Diogo Jota and Xherdan Shaqiri combined for a late winner – scored by the Portuguese forward with five minutes remaining. Jota has scored in Liverpool’s last three league games.

It was West Ham’s first league defeat in five games, after playing against sides who finished in the top seven last season. They were without key forward Michail Antonio, who was injured.
Since David Moyes’ first game back in charge of West Ham in January, the London side have dropped more points from winning positions than any other side in the Premier League (16).
