Liverpool have won the home game in the Premier League against West Ham United. A goal from Sadio Mane after half an hour of play, on the verge of offside, was enough for the victory over the number 5 of England: 1-0. For example, the team of trainer Jürgen Klopp, who is second, is 3 points behind leader Manchester City.
Mané was able to tap in from close range from a low cross from defender Trent Alexander-Arnold. The goal was still watched by the video referee, but he found that the Senegalese attacker had stayed just enough behind the West Ham defender. For example, Alexander-Arnold provided his 11th assist in the Premier League this season, more than any other player in the league. Virgil van Dijk played the entire match for Liverpool.
West Ham had to do without the Ukrainian Andri Jarmolenko. The attacker was given longer time off so that he can focus on his family because of the war in his country. Ukraine was supported before the game with a minute of applause.
