Liverpool 2 West Ham 1: Jota strikes winner to send Klopp's champions to top of Premier League

DIOGO JOTA went from heartbreak to elation as his 85th minute goal secured Liverpool a 2-1 win at home to West Ham.

The former Wolves man thought he had netted what would have been the matchwinner 14 minutes from time.


But Sadio Mane was adjudged to have fouled Hammers keeper Lukasz Fabianski and the goal was chalked off.

But less than ten minutes later the 23-year-old striker was smiling after a beautiful move saw him ping past Fabianski to seal the three points.

Pablo Fornals had given a resurgent West Ham the lead in the 10th minute, but Mo Salah levelled things up from the penalty spot.
