England: Liverpool draw and fall behind again in the title fight

Liverpool once again fell behind in the title competition. After the defeat in the Merseyside derby against Everton, the Reds did not exceed a 2-2 draw against West Ham, in their visit to London. Without the injured Jota, Jurgen Klopp's side created their first imminent goal situation through Luis Diaz in the 40th minute. In response, Bowen threatened to make it 1-0, but Alisson was the hero the Reds needed. However, the Brazilian was unable to do anything a few minutes later to stop Bowen's precise header.

The second half witnessed a positive start for Liverpool, and they were able to equalize the score in the 49th minute through Robertson. The Scot received it from Diaz in the area and fired on Arreola and he doesn't look good in the picture.

And the French goalkeeper's afternoon got worse after the 65th minute. After a corner kick, Jacobo shot the ball, it hit Ogbonna, and Soucek tried to cross the goal line, but he shot into Areola's back… and Liverpool made it 2-1.

However, the Premier League's third-placed side were unable to maintain their lead and Bowen saw a neat pass through to Michail Antonio to make it 2-2. It is true that Liverpool were still trying to win and were close to scoring the goal that would have given them great value, but Harvey Elliott hit the post in the 90th minute, so the Merseyside team had 75 points, one less than City and two less than Arsenal. However, it is important to note that the โ€œCitizensโ€ have two fewer games while the โ€œGunnersโ€ have one less game. For its part, West Ham has 48 points, two points behind Manchester United, which is in sixth place.
