Mane secured the winner for Liverpool as they clinched a record-equalling 18th-straight Premier League win on Monday against West Ham.

Mane scored the winner as Liverpool secured a 3-2 victory against the Hammers at Anfield.

It wasn’t a straightforward win for the Reds as they were made to sweat for the win against relegation threatened West Ham.

It appeared set to be business as usual for the Reds when Georginio Wijnaldum secured a early ninth-minute lead. The cross was by Alexander-Arnold who got himself in illustrious company with that assist as well.

Home fans responded to the goal by chanting, ‘We’re going to win the league’ – only to be quickly silenced by an equaliser at the Kop end.

Liverpool’s opener lasted for only 174 seconds and Issa Diop secured the equalizer with a header from a corner.

Pablo Fornals then put West Ham ahead in the second half with a good finish from Declan Rice’s cross.

Fabianski gifted the Reds their equalizer as Salah pounced on it before Mane slotted home in the 81st minute.

That win meant it was Liverpool’s 18th consecutive win..equaling the record set by Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s men need only four more wins to be officially crowned as the Premier League champions. Quite remarkable.
