The defending champions Liverpool are at the top of the Premier League table, after their dramatic victory over West Ham United 2-1 on Saturday in the seventh round of the Premier League.

And at Anfield, Liverpool succeeded in converting from a goal against West Ham to a two-goal win to win the lead.

West Ham led by Pablo Fornals in the tenth minute, but Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah equalized for Liverpool from a penalty kick 3 minutes before the end of the first half.

Salah raised his score to 7 goals to rank second in the Premier League scorer list this season, one goal behind leaders Heung Min Son of Tottenham Hotspur.

Diego Guetta believed that he put Liverpool ahead when he fired into the empty goal after goalkeeper Okache Fabianski blocked Sadio Mane's attempt, but the goal was canceled after the referee, after watching the game on the screen outside the stadium, saw a foul against the Senegalese striker.

But Jota managed to score the winning goal after receiving a smart pass between the defenders of substitute Xherdan Shaqiri and the Portuguese striker did not miss the goal, scoring his third goal in three matches at Anfield with Liverpool.

With this victory, Liverpool equaled the club's record of keeping their record unbeaten in 63 consecutive home games in the league.

The victory raised Liverpool's score at the top to 16 points, 3 points behind their closest followers, Everton, who meets on Sunday with host Newcastle United, while West Ham's balance stopped at 8 points in 13th place.
