Two in two for Liverpool, if only we were this ruthless earlier in the month.

It may of been a drab first half but the Rampant Reds were in full flow in the second half.

The win moves Jurgen Klopp’s side into third just four points off the league leaders Manchester City.

It was trademark Mo for the opening goal, Curtis Jones slipped the Egyptian in as he weaved it onto his left and threaded it into the top corner.

He soon went from 14 Premier League goals to 15 rounding off a free-flowing counter attack from the Champions.

Trent Alexander-Arnold found Xherdan Shaqiri on the far side, the Switzerland international picked out Salah, a world-class first touch killed it dead and the finish was just as good.

Georginio Wijnaldum had another fantastic game in the number six role, he topped off another underrated performance by getting himself on the scoresheet.

Substitute Roberto Firmino carried on his impressive run of form, a one-two with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain left him one-on-one with Lukasz Fabianski but his disguised pass left the goal gaping for the Dutchman.

Liverpool Man of the Match

We asked our followers to pick their man of the match from Liverpool’s win over West Ham United.

It was to be the match-winner. The Premier League top goalscorer was deservedly the man of the match winner.

You wouldn’t think Nat Phillips had played five league games, the towering defender thwarted the threat of Michail Antonio and rightly so deserved to be within a shout of man of the match for the Reds.

But Mo Salah takes it, ending a mini-league goal drought but he capped today’s performance with two tremendous goals.

He also chipped in with brilliant work-rate.
