So close but yet so far, this might be the apt description for Liverpool at the end of the season.

Liverpool have missed the chance to restore their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table courtesy of a disappointing 1-1 draw against West Ham United at the London Stadium on Monday night.

Sadio Mane midway through the first half had given the Reds the lead, but it was an unconvincing performance from Jurgen Klopp's side and the Hammers were well worth the point given to them by Michael Antonio's quickfire equaliser.

Indeed, the hosts may feel that they could have come away with all three points given that Liverpool's goal should have been ruled out for a clear offside in the buildup.

The result does mean that Liverpool - who have now drawn back-to-back league games - extend their advantage at the top to three points, but Manchester City will have the chance to leapfrog them in the table by beating Everton on Wednesday night
