Mane Returns As Liverpool Crush West Ham

Mane Returns As Liverpool Crush West Ham

Quickfire first-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Joel Matip saw the hapless Hammers booed off at the interval.

Juergen Klopp's side won at West Ham 4-1 to secure successive league victories for the first time since August.

West Ham player Aaron Cresswell was also asked about Bilic's position.

Two weeks ago Liverpool left the capital with their tail between their legs after a 4-1 mauling by Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, but have racked up 10 goals and conceded one since.

"I have to talk to the chairman, we are going to discuss this defeat", Bilic said.

The source said West Ham's hierarchy feel the timing is right to make a change in the hopes that the upcoming worldwide break will give the new manager time to settle in before the Hammers' next game, away to Watford on November 19. They have been supportive, very good to me in my two and half seasons, but the situation is very hard.

And, whilst the West Ham board have been incredibly patient, losing to Liverpool may force their hand. "We wanted to strike back and we have with really good results".

The Hammers dropped to 17th, with just a point separating them from the relegation zone.

His presence was felt nearly instantly as Liverpool looked more threatening with him in the side, the speed he offers giving Klopp's attack an extra boost.

Mane didn't score, but coming through 77 minutes unscathed with assists for both of Salah's goals vindicated Klopp's decision to start him.

Mane lasted 77 minutes despite having had only two training sessions, while Georginio Wijnaldum lasted the full game despite looking certain to miss the match with an ankle knock. "I never did it before", Klopp said.

"The first goal was a fantastic counter-attack, the second from a corner and that's two goals from set-plays in a week".

West Ham came close to making it 3-2 in the 62nd minute from a free-kick from the left by Lanzini, but Javier Hernandez's flicked header went inches off target.
