Three massively important points take Liverpool above Spurs in the Premier League table into sixth, sat one point behind Aston Villa with a game in hand. They're six points off the top four, but with several key players hitting form exactly at the right time of the season, who's to say Liverpool can't make a return to the Champions League in the six league games they have left? West Ham come right back down to Earth after their 4-0 win over Bournemouth, but the Hammers remain five points above the drop zone with plenty of teams plugging the gap between themselves in 14th, and Leicester in the final relegation place.

Matip's winner from a corner came directly after Fabianski had denied him from close-range, and the Reds defender proved to be a vital cog at both ends on his return to the side. The Cameroonian managed two shots on target from three attempts, with his 0.76 xG the most amassed by any player on the pitch, and he also won 11 of his team-high 17 duels, nine of which came in the air. Winning possession six times, Matip chipped in with three interceptions and clearances apiece, also winning one tackle and free-kick each for good measure.

It's all over, and despite things getting rather twitchy towards the back end of that half, Matip's header secures a deserved win for Liverpool! The Reds carried on where they left off in the first half, having copious chances through Alexander-Arnold, Diaz and Matip before the latter powered in a header from his next attempt. Bowen had seen a breakaway goal chalked off thanks to being fractionally offside earlier in the half, and played a crucial role as West Ham pushed for an equaliser. Chances went begging for Cornet, Soucek, and Bowen again as the clock ticked down, with the Hammers harshly denied a late penalty after Thiago handled in the box. On the overall balance of play though, the points deserve to be Liverpool's, and they return to Anfield with all three, edging ever closer to securing European qualification.
