In what has looked thus far to be a tight battle at the top of the English top-flight between Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea, few mistakes can be afforded across the course of a season.
Chelsea’s recent slip against West Ham United has afforded the Reds an opening at the league summit, courtesy of a frankly ridiculous (and, evidently, accidental) effort from Arthur Masuaku.
Wide on the left-flank, the Hammers star appears to attempt to float in a cross with the game balanced at 2-2, with his effort going wayward of its intended target and into the top-left beyond a wrong-footed Edouard Mendy.
With a two-point gap all that separates Jurgen Klopp’s men from their London-based title rivals, Liverpool have an irresistible opportunity to launch themselves toward the top of the table (depending on the outcome of Manchester City’s evening game).
