Liverpool extended their winning run to five consecutive games with a 3-1 victory over West Ham at Anfield.
Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners in an entertaining Premier League match against West Ham United at Anfield, their fifth straight win of the season.
How it happened
West Ham started brightly as Tomáš Souček forced a superb save from Alisson with a brilliant header.
They were made to regret that miss almost immediately after, though, as Luis Díaz’s pass took a flick off Darwin Núñez to find Mohamed Salah, who was fouled by Nayef Aguerd.
The Egyptian dusted himself off and emphatically dispatched his 10th career goal against West Ham from the penalty spot.
After Salah missed a glorious opportunity to double the lead, Jarrod Bowen reacted quickest, diving at Van Dijk’s feet to head Vladimír Coufal’s header in off the post.
Liverpool regained the advantage after the restart as Darwin Núñez struck on the hour mark, meeting Alexis Mac Allister’s ball behind with a deft finish to score in back-to-back matches.
The home side got the third in the 85th minute when substitute Diogo Jota showed the awareness to convert from Van Dijk’s knockdown, as Liverpool extended their division-best unbeaten run in the PL to 17 matches
