  1. Goodbye

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Mohamed Salah

    Mohamed Salah scores twice as Liverpool won comfortably at West Ham to increase the pressure on Hammers boss Slaven Bilic.

    Have a read of the report

    We are back on Sunday for more Premier League action.

    Until then.

  2. 'Letting the manager down'

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    West Ham United

    West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell to MOTD: "It's hard to take and it is not good enough. We have a two-week gap now and we have to get on the training ground to put things right.

    "Confidence is low. It's not easy being at the bottom of the table. We saw the fans leaving at the end and that's down to the way we are playing. We need to turn this mess around.

    "Times are difficult, The goals we conceded were not good enough.

    "[Bilic under pressure] They are not our decisions. As players we can be professional and do our best.

    "[Are you letting him down] Definitely, every player included. It is not good enough as a team collectively. We need to ease the pressure off the gaffer and ourselves."

  3. 'It's a very difficult situation for me'

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    West Ham United

    West Ham boss Slaven Bilic to BT Sport: "[Big sigh] We started well for the first 20 minutes, exactly what we wanted but then we conceded two goals, very cheap.

    "We tried to change the shape and be more open in the second half, we scored but they are so good on the counter attack. It is a big defeat for us.

    "It's not a lack of effort. We should have defended better, it's no excuse to concede from your own corner kick. At this level if you are 2-0 down so early it's not game over but it's very difficult to come back.

    "I have to talk to the chairman, we are going to discuss this defeat. It's not the first one, it's the second in a row in home. It is a very difficult situation for me.

    "I always believe in myself, I wouldn't be here otherwise.

    "[Do you still have the club's backing?] It's hard for me to talk about that now."

  4. Post update

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    West Ham manager Slaven Bilic says he will talk to the chairman and discuss the defeat. "It is very difficult for me".

    Doesn't sound too positive, that.

  5. 'Wijnaldum had no boots!'

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool



    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to MOTD: "The result, it feels good. We changed our approach, it was a counter-attacking line-up to use our speed from a deep situation.

    "It was brilliant play for the first goal.

    "Our counter-attacking was pretty perfect, we had some wonderful play. Roberto Firmino, I'm not sure I've ever seen a player play a third game in the week with such intensity and I'm a few days in this business.

    "3-0, 3-0, 4-1, it's a really good week. It's a good moment to have a little break. We lost our skipper overnight and Gini Wijnaldum did not have his boots here.

    "We thought he had no chance of playing, we only brought him here so he is nearer to Amsterdam, he was flying there to see the doctor.

    "And he played 90 minutes. Sadio Mane is a naturally fit player, he could have played the 90 minutes after just one training session."

  6. Post update

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp says Georginio Wijnaldum only travelled with the team to play as London is closer to Amsterdam, where he was going to visit a doctor.

    The Dutchman did not even bring any boots.

    Full quotes to come.

  8. 'It was intense'

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool


    Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah tells BT Sport: "We started the game very well and scored in the beginning which helped us to make the game easy. It's a good result in the end.

    "I was confident to come to England again but I have to carry on."

    Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: "It was definitely not an easy game Mo! It was intense, especially when they made it 2-1. We defended well, they went long to Andy Carroll and we knew that on the counter we are a big threat. We proved that time and time again."

  9. 'Liverpool wiped the floor'

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    BBC Merseyside Sport

    Ex-Liverpool defender Nick Tanner: "You can't argue with that performance. I think Jurgen Klopp is doing a great job and, of course, there will be tougher challenges ahead compared to today.

    "West Ham lay down today and Liverpool wiped the floor with them. But that is three or four wins on the trot now and it is looking good and positive for Liverpool."

  11. Post update

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Large banks of empty seats at the London Stadium when the whistle blows for full-time and loud boos from those remaining as Slaven Bilic made his way down the tunnel.

  13. Post update

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Big smile on Jurgen Klopp's face in the dugout. He has enjoyed this one.

    Into injury-time.

    West Ham's misery continues for a few more minutes.


    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Manuel Lanzini brings down Georginio Wijnaldum and gets booked.

    Hammered at home and a booking fine to pay.

  15. Post update

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Jonathan Overend

    BBC Radio 5 live at London Stadium

    It's another early walkout from a dispirited London Stadium. The ground is half empty with 15 minutes to go, just as it was in the last home match against Brighton. Even considering West Ham have four strikers on the field, with gaps inevitable at the back, Liverpool are carving them apart at will. Amazing it is only 4-1.

  16. CLOSE!

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Liverpool come again.

    They have three on three in this attack.

    Sub Dominic Solanke looking for his first Liverpool goal, but cannot get his effort on target.

    Don't look towards your team-mates, Dom. They ain't happy you went alone there.


    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    A late double change for Liverpool.

    Dejan Lovren and Dominic Solanke are given run-outs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Roberto Firmino replaced.

    Chamberlain is substituted off
  18. CLOSE!

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Liverpool bursting forward at will.

    Chance after chance.

    Roberto Firmino wasting it this time, shooting over from the angle.

  19. CLOSE!

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    West Ham have pretty much given up, sadly.

    Acres of space for James Milner to make it five... but he scuffs an effort wide from the edge of the box.

  20. CLOSE!

    West Ham 1-4 Liverpool

    Nearly gets worse for West Ham.

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has a strike from 10 yards, but it is blocked.

    How did the Liverpool man have so much room there? I guess the West Ham players did not spot him in his bright orange shirt, shorts and socks.
