It was the Hammers who created the majority of the clear chances for a winner too, but in the end the spoils were shared as Liverpool missed the chance to restore their five-point lead at the top.
Find out how all of the action unfolded courtesy of Sports Mole's minute-by-minute coverage below.
Liverpool saw both Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur close the gap at the top of the table over the weekend, and they know that only a win will do if they are to restore their five-point lead tonight. The Reds were held to a draw by Leicester last time out, but face a West Ham side in torrid form.
Let's waste no time in getting started with a look at the team news...
SUBS: Adrian, Masuaku, Zabaleta, Obiang, Diangana, Perez, Carroll
SUBS: Mignolet, Sturridge, Moreno, Shaqiri, Origi, Jones, Camacho
It is lovely play from Lallana to escape from a tight situation and feed the ball through for Milner, who plays a low ball into the box. It shouldn't go that far given Milner is so far offside, but take nothing away from the finish as Mane spins his man and makes no mistake with his finish.
First blood to Liverpool!
Antonio escapes Keita and then fires his finish in off the inside of the far post to make it four Premier League goals against Liverpool!
The visitors took the lead against the run of play, but for the most part it is West Ham who have looked most like scoring in that opening 45 minutes. Liverpool could easily be behind in this match, and if they don't improve in the second half then they could be on course for a costly defeat here.
There was a terrible decision in the buildup, though, as the linesman failed to spot James Milner a couple of yards offside right in front of him. Milner proceeded to play a low ball into the box for Mane, who turned his man smartly before picking out the bottom corner.
It came from a training-ground free kick routine as a short free kick was then slid down the channel for Antonio, who escaped Keita before firing his finish in off the inside of the far post, leaving Alisson helpless.
One of them led to a particularly good chance for Declan Rice, who could only nod narrowly over when he should have scored, while Hernandez and Cresswell have also threatened for the hosts.
They are held to a 1-1 stalemate by West Ham, who were well worth the point at least at the London Stadium. Sadio Mane gave Liverpool the lead midway through the first half, but that was a rare moment to cheer for the visitors and West Ham equalised through Michail Antonio within six minutes.
The gap inches up to three points, but Man City will now have the chance to go top on Wednesday night...
