West Ham 1-4 Liverpool: Salah Nets Brace

West Ham 1-4 Liverpool: Salah Nets Brace

When detailed by Slaven Bilic to stay with their man, it can't have been easy for any West Ham player to follow his instructions as Liverpool rotated from minute to minute. Find out by following our live matchcast.

"The first goal is a counter-attack, the ball dropped for them brilliantly".

This looked set to be the game's key tactical battle: could Salah help Liverpool break down a deep defence?

Deservedly named Man of the Match by BT Sport, the Egyptian was only inches away from a hat-trick, but as it was his goals bookended a professional display by the Reds.

Matteo says that West Ham should give Carroll an hour and see if he can cause problems for the Reds, dismissing the view that the England striker is better being brought on as an impact substitute.

Vicente Iborra opened the scoring with his first goal for Leicester before Xherdan Shaqiri levelled.

The Croat will at least be able to call upon left-back Aaron Cresswell, with the 27-year-old recovering from a dead leg picked up in last weekend's draw at Selhurst Park, whilst centre-back Winston Reid is also available for selection following a spell on the sidelines.

The hosts did, admittedly, hit the post at 0-0: a deflected pass ran through to Andre Ayew in the inside-right channel, and his dink over Simon Mignolet struck the outside of the goalkeeper's near post.

Javier Hernandez is a brilliant penalty box operator but didn't even get the chance to operate in the penalty box.

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.

Suprisingly from kick-off, Liverpool restored their two-goal advantage in the 56th minute when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain bundled in his rebound into the roof of the net for his first league goal for Liverpool.

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

Roberto Firmino fed Oxlade-Chamberlain, who saw his initial effort well saved by Hart but the winger reacted quickest to smash home his second attempt.
