Mohamed Salah scored a superb second-half double as Liverpool moved up to third in the table with a 3-1 victory at West Ham United.
Clear chances were at a premium in an even first half, with Alisson saving Michail Antonio’s header before Salah’s shot was held by Lukasz Fabianski.
But Liverpool took the lead on 57 minutes when Salah created space for himself before curling the ball in from an angle.
Eight minutes later, the Egyptian made it 2-0 with a sensational goal on the counter-attack.
After a West Ham corner was cleared, Trent Alexander-Arnold produced a magnificent crossfield pass for Xherdan Shaqiri, who then found Salah with another sublime ball. The Egyptian controlled beautifully and flicked past Fabianski.
Georginio Wijnaldum’s right-footed shot, following a slick move, put Liverpool 3-0 ahead on 84 minutes, before Craig Dawson swept home a late consolation.
Liverpool are now four points behind leaders Manchester City, who have a match in hand.
Defeat leaves West Ham in fifth place with 35 points.
