Liverpool 4 – West Ham 1
Man United take on Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Red Devils will now come into that game in third place in the division following another Liverpool win on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side scored four times as they put West Ham to the sword.
The writing was on the wall for the Hammers after just two minutes, when a Mohamed Salah shot hit the inside of the post and stayed out.
Emre Can broke the deadlock with a 29th minute header from a Salah corner. Salah then doubled the lead early in the second half.
Roberto Firmino made it 3-0, Sadio Mane added a late fourth, while Michail Antonio scored a consolation for West Ham.
Roberto Firmino’s ‘no-look’ goal
Of all of Liverpool’s goals, Roberto Firmino’s garnered the most chatter.
That’s because the Brazilian stroke the ball into the back of the West Ham net without even looking at the target.

West Ham goalie Adrian gifted Liverpool the goal with a kick straight out to Emre Can.
Can played in Firmino, who rounded Adrian and scored with a ‘no-look’ goal.
Earlier in the game, Firmino also got people talking with his celebration for Salah’s goal.
As Salah and Mane celebrated with Firmino, the Brazilian lifted up his partners in crime at the same time in a quality moment.
