Liverpool Are Just Three Points Ahead In The Title Race After Draw Against West Ham
Liverpool's push for their first Premier League title in 29 years took another frustrating hit on Monday night after Jurgen Klopp's side could only record a draw against West Ham.
Sadio Mane opened the scoring thanks to a magnificent piece of skill from Adam Lallana in the build up to the goal, but replays showed the goal shouldn't have counted.
Liverpool's James Milner was standing in an offside position when Lallana offloaded the ball, but their lead didn't last long.

Michail Antonio leveled the scoring just six minutes later as his shot deflected off the post and into the net.
It was a deserved goal for the Hammers, who impressed throughout the tie.

Liveprool just couldn't find a winner in the second period, with West Ham's determined defending blocking out what would have been a crucial second.
The title race is still on as Manchester City sit in second place, just three points behind the league leaders.
Can Liverpool win the league or will they bottle it in the coming weeks?
Liverpool look so nervous and I think they are gonna bottle it. They haven't got champions mentality...- Andy T (@AndyTho91282209) February 4, 2019
