Liverpool vs West Ham United Match Report 2018

Liverpool climbed to the second position in the Premier League with a 4-1 victory over West Ham United on Saturday.

Emre Can in the 29th minute broke the deadlock with a close-range header, thereby giving Liverpool’s 100th goal of the season in all competitions.

Mohamed Salah took his tally to 31 by scoring a goal in the 51st minute.

West Ham hit the bar through Marko Arnautovic in the early stages, but were totally outplayed and managed just a goal in the 59th minute through substitute Michail Antonio.

The Hammers, whose supporters wore T-shirt following the 25th anniversary of Bobby Moore’s death, offered little and the result prolonged their manager David Moyes miserable record at Anfield.

The former Everton and Manchester United boss in 15 attempts have failed to win at this ground.

It also proved an ineffective Hammers debut for Patrice Evra, with the former United defender being booed throughout.

The Egyptian quickly made amends for that miss after the restart, continuing his prolific season by turning a low shot past Adrian after a tenacious run by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

But Liverpool regrouped and Adrian was in action again as he saved goals from Salah, Firmino and Mane in quick succession.
