Come-from-behind Reds extend incredible EPL run

Liverpool preserved their unbeaten record in the Premier League by coming from behind to beat West Ham 3-2 at Anfield on Monday.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane scored second half goals in a thrilling game at Anfield that enabled the runaway league leaders to tie Manchester City's 2017 record for consecutive top-flight wins - 18.

The victory also equalled the 1972 record for the Reds' most top-flight home wins - 21.

But it was not without a scare against the relegation-threatened opponents who equalised through Issa Diop in the first half after Gini Wijnaldum headed Liverpool ahead after just eight minutes .

Anfield was stunned further when Pablo Fornals gave West Ham a shock 2-1 lead in the 55th minute as Liverpool's ambitions of becoming only the second team to go through a Premier League campaign unbeaten - after Arsenal in 2003-04 - came under serious threat.

But the Reds were stirred into action and after Salah's 68th-minute shot squirmed through the arms and legs of West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski and over the line in front of The Kop, Mane completed the comeback in the 81st.

A 26th win in 27 league matches restored Liverpool's 22-point lead over Manchester City and left Juergen Klopp's team needing only four more victories to clinch a first English championship title in 30 years.
