Liverpool gave their fans another scare on Saturday night when they left it late to complete a nervy recovery against West Ham. It was the third home game in succession in which they have had to come from behind but even though it seems to be Fright Night every night at Anfield, their win brought them to the top of the table for the first time this season.
Fireworks from improvised Hallowe’en displays illuminated the night sky in Anfield, but this is not one of the most explosive displays in Liverpool. You deserved your victory, but you looked in vain for your old flow. You might be back at the top of the heap, but few will bet a lot on them, just as they did last season.
The two-to-one victory meant that they set a new class record of 63 league games at home, a race that lasted 2-1 at Crystal Palace until the 23rd of April 2017. When David Moyes’ side was shot early by Pablo Fornals, this record was at risk and the points were scored by Mohamed Salah and a late winner from Diogo Jota.
