Rejuvenated Liverpool Thrash Woeful West Ham At The London Stadium

West Ham team news: Bilic without number of key players for visit of Liverpool

While he isn't the most prolific front man in the Premier League, his hard-working attitude and skill on the ball makes him stand out to the Reds' supporters. "If he can play for Senegal, I think he should - good for rhythm", he concluded.

West Ham started their match against Liverpool in fine form. Some of their fans left after Liverpool's second goal, however, fearful of what was to come.

Performing at the highest level for both club and country, Salah is as important to Liverpool as his counterpart Mane. What Liverpool surely required was someone who could drop off, create three-against-two situations in midfield to bypass Noble and Pedro Obiang.

Salah stayed rather too high up the pitch, with he and Firmino playing into the hands of West Ham's three-man defence. Sane picked the ball up outside his own penalty area, raced into the Hammers half, stormed in on goal then unselfishly passed to the in-coming Salah.

David Moyes for West Ham?

Salah took his tally to seven, one fewer than Premier League top scorer Harry Kane, and was joined on the scoresheet for Liverpool by Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Two early goals from set-pieces, though, meant Liverpool didn't need to prove themselves unsafe in open play.

Expecting a 4-3-3 it was evident within the opening moments that Liverpool were adopting a 4-4-2; however, as Klopp has mentioned on several occasions, players' starting points are purely that. "It's not the first one, it's the second in a row at home".

West Ham got back into the game 10 minutes after the break.

Asked after Saturday's defeat if he still had West Ham's backing, Bilic told BT Sport: "It's hard for me to talk about that now".

A mis-judged timing on the path of Joe Gomez saw Manuel Lanzini chest down Andre Ayew's cross to the back post before the Argentine poked the ball past Simon Mignolet to bring the Hammers back into the game but their celebration was shortlived.

The bubbles were still streaming across the London Stadium when Liverpool immediately restored their two-goal lead.
