Mane flying as Liverpool look to go second

Saturday's 4-1 win over West Ham fired the Reds up to second in the Premier League and they fully deserve to be where they are.

Speaking before the match, the Scotsman said: "It's tough for any club going to Liverpool".

West Ham have scored 34 goals in the Premier League this season so far and 10 of them have been contributed by Marko Arnautovic. He fired in after the reds lost possession in the midfield.

West Ham, for whom Patrice Evra made his debut, were then caught out by some clever movement from the Egypt worldwide, whose touch was surprisingly found wanting as he sought to get the ball under his spell inside the area.

"We play Chelsea late in the season, we play United in about two weeks I think, very decisive as well".

On 22 October, the German's side were battling to stay in the top half after a 4-1 defeat against Tottenham at Wembley left them ninth behind the likes of Burnley, Watford and Newcastle.

Rafa Benitez's side looked to be guaranteed back-to-back victories for the first time since September after Dwight Gayle ended his recent goal drought by scoring twice before the interval. With 10 Premier League games and likely at least three Champions League contests remaining, Klopp's side seem nearly certain to eclipse that mark in the near future.

Swansea are now 17th on 27 points, just one point above the relegation zone.

Liverpool may have to be patient against a West Ham side that has picked up four points from their last two visits to Anfield.

Each supporter will find the one-off item on their seat in the away end to wear throughout the Premier League clash.

Registering four from as many different scorers against West Ham shows why Jurgen Klopp's side may soon lay siege to their 101 league goals in 2013/14.

West Ham striker Mikhail Antonio pulled a goal back for the Hammers after coming on as a substitute for Manuel Manzini.

Karius comfortably dealt with a number of floated efforts from West Ham's statue-esque forward to ensure Liverpool's advantage was maintained.

United have led the chase of City throughout the first 27 match days of the season, but its becoming apparent that their second billing has been usurped by their bitter rivals. First, it was the incident with Ederson and then it was injury, which seemed to keep Mane away from the form he showed a year ago.

"Our goal gave us a chance of getting back in the game". Dejan Lovren and Joël Matip are fighting to be van Dijk's partner at centre-back for the rest of the season, with the victor likely to remain at Anfield and the loser probably on his way out of the club, with other centre-backs such as Lazio's Stefan de Vrij linked with a move to Liverpool. "That's what you need in front of the goal, of course". Moyes had never won at Anfield during 14 previous attempts and that poor record continued on Saturday.
