Liverpool are up to second in the Premier League table after seeing off West Ham on Sunday in a game that was lit up by a sensational assist by Alexis Mac Allister. The Argentina midfielder chipped the ball over the visitors' defence, allowing Darwin Nunez to volley home and set the Reds on their way to three points midway through the second half.

Jurgen Klopp's side initially took the lead early on through a Mohamed Salah penalty, but were pegged back before the break by a Jarrod Bowen diving header. Nunez missed a huge chance to make it 2-1 early in the second half, but made amends by firing home from Mac Allister's pass just moments later.

Diogo Jota then secured the points with a close-range finish just minutes after coming off the bench, and with Arsenal and Tottenham sharing the spoils in the North London Derby, the Reds are now in second place on their own and just two points behind leaders Manchester City.
