Steven Gerrard scored twice from the penalty spot to take Liverpool back to the top of the English Premier football League with a 2-1 win at West Ham United.

Liverpool are now two points ahead of Chelsea, while Manchester City, who play Liverpool next week are another two points back with two matches in hand.

It was a Merseyside double over London clubs on Monday with Everton beating Arsenal 3-0 at Goodison Park to boost their chances of a top four finish and a possible place in next season's Champions League for the first time in nine seasons.

Arsenal are fourth on the table, just one point ahead of Everton.
