West Ham 1-4 Liverpool: Salah Nets Brace

Sadio is a naturally fit player, he is a machine. "That's different", Klopp said.

Remarkably, Burnley are also level-pegging on 19 points with Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool as Sam Vokes pounced late on for Sean Dyche's side against Southampton.

Manuel Lanzini hit back early in the second half but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and another Salah goal ensured the win for the Reds.

Salah poked the cleared ball onto Mane, whose searing pace took him away from his toiling chasers, and the Senegalese returned a pass to Salah for a composed finish under Joe Hart. What Liverpool surely required was someone who could drop off, create three-against-two situations in midfield to bypass Noble and Pedro Obiang.

Firmino, though, was cruelly denied his fifth assist of the campaign, with Hart's initial intervention meaning there was no official credit given to him for Oxlade-Chamberlain's goal. Meanwhile, West Ham remain a point above the relegation zone after their winless run was extended to four games.

Could West Ham conjure up a stunning comeback as they did against rivals Tottenham in the League Cup? Ayew this time crossed to Lanzini at the back post, and Lanzini controlled the ball expertly on his chest before poking a smart finish past Simon Mignolet.

Salah completed the rout 15 minutes from the end, receiving the ball from Mane before driving a powerful effort across goal into the bottom corner.

Sadly, for Slaven Bilic's side, that wasn't the case; instead, West Ham conceded twice in three first-half minutes from a counter-attack and a set-piece, essentially finding themselves defeated after half an hour.

"And I am definitely not feeling a broken man".

"On the other hand, the situation for West Ham is not good and as I said, two years ago, one year ago and now, the club is above every individual and that includes me".

After the match he admitted that he "has to talk to the chairman" and it remains "a very hard situation for me". This was not one of them, although the Hammers were just dreadfully flat, short of attacking spark or interplay between their attackers.
