REDS OVERCOME SLOW START AGAINST RESILIENT HAMMERS
Jurgen Klopp’s side were rocked by Pablo Fornals’ early strike at Anfield as the West Ham midfielder punished a poor header from Joe Gomez in the 10th minute.
It has become a worrying habit for the Reds who by no means are not capable of coming back from deficits but they are making it harder than it needs to be.
The Reds drew level in the 42nd minute when Mohamed Salah was fouled by Arthur Masuaku and the Egyptian stepped up to convert the penalty for his eighth goal of the season.
Liverpool thought they had claimed the lead with just over 10 minutes remaining when substitute Jota turned in a loose ball.
Jota had pounced after Lukasz Fabianski saved Sadio Mane’s shot but after a lengthy delay that saw referee Kevin Friend make use of the pitchside monitor, the goal was ruled out for a foul by the Senegal winger.
With time running out, Jota ensured he would still finish as Liverpool’s hero.
In the 85th minute, the Portugal forward ran onto Xherdan Shaqiri’s pass to score his third goal since joining from Wolves in September.
It was Liverpool’s fourth successive victory since influential defender Virgil van Dijk was sidelined for several months with a serious knee injury suffered against Everton.
Despite their defensive issues this term, Liverpool have opened up a three-point lead over second placed Everton, with their Merseyside rivals in action at Newcastle on Sunday.
ZIYECH STARTING TO FIRE AFTER INJURY LAYOFF
Frank Lampard admitted he is excited by Hakim Ziyech’s quality after the Morocco playmaker scored his first Premier League goal on his maiden English top-flight start as Chelsea powered to a 3-0 win at Burnley on Saturday.
Lampard’s side dominated from start to finish thanks to an influential display from Ziyech.
Ziyech scored his first Chelsea goal in their midweek Champions League rout of Krasnodar and a cool finish in the first half at Turf Moor got him off the mark in the Premier League as well.
The 27-year-old, who joined from Ajax in the close-season on a deal worth $A64 million, is the first player to score in his first two starts for Chelsea in all competitions since Diego Costa in 2014.
Kurt Zouma doubled the lead after half-time and Ziyech teed up Timo Werner to seal Chelsea’s first win in three Premier League games as they climbed to fourth place.
“I’m really impressed and really excited. I could see his personality and work-rate off the ball,” Lampard said.
“You saw that today. That bit of quality gives us something different.”

After the tiring trip to Russia, this was a confident performance from the Blues, with new boys Ziyech, Werner and Kai Havertz showing they would not be intimidated by a chilly, wind-swept afternoon against physical opponents.
Well marshalled by Thiago Silva, Chelsea kept a fourth consecutive clean sheet in all competitions, banishing the defensive woes that haunted them earlier this term.
It is the first time Chelsea have kept successive league clean sheets since Lampard took charge last year and they are now unbeaten in six games in all competitions.
“It was a very complete performance from us. It’s a difficult place to come. We controlled massive parts of the game, so I’m very happy,” Lampard said.
“I was always aware at the start of the season that it wasn’t going to be easy. It was asking a lot for us to fly out of the blocks, but performances like this show that we’re doing something positive.”
Winless Burnley sit bottom of the table after losing five of their opening six top-flight matches for the first time since 1927-28.
WALKER THE WINNER AGAINST BOYHOOD CLUB
Kyle Walker’s long-range effort against his former club was enough to secure a 1-0 win for Manchester City over Sheffield United.
It was City’s fourth win in five games in all competitions as they move up to seventh in the Premier League, just two points off the top.
Without a natural striker due to injuries to Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, City struggled to turn their dominance into goals at Bramall Lane.
“We played really well,” added Guardiola.
“We struggled to score goals for the chances we created, 16 shots, eight on target, is a lot against this team.”
Aaron Ramsdale was busy in the Blades’ goal as he twice denied Ferran Torres from close range, while he unconvincingly parried Rodrigo’s long-range effort behind.
Walker finally broke the deadlock from similar range on 28 minutes as his shot arrowed low past Ramsdale’s right-hand, but there was a muted celebration from the England international against his boyhood club.
“My mum and dad live here, so if I’d celebrated I’d have got a lot of stick,” said Walker.
“I’m a Sheffield United fan, so I couldn’t celebrate.”
Kevin De Bruyne flashed a shot wide following another attacking burst from Walker early in the second-half before Ramsdale produced his best save of the game from Riyad Mahrez’s free-kick.
However, City’s failure to kill off the game gave Chris Wilder’s men chances to snatch an unlikely point.
John Lundstram had the best chance for the hosts when he side-footed Sander Berge’s low cross over.
But Sheffield United have still scored just three goals in seven games to start the season and remain second bottom on just one point.
