West Ham to stick with in-form Ayew and Co - Bilic

Liverpool handed major boost as star returns to training two weeks ahead of schedule

"We wanted to be unsafe on the break and the first goal showed how deadly we can be-from defending a corner to scoring as quickly as we did".

" It was a counter-attacking line-up to use our speed from a deep situation". West Ham boast neither the technical quality nor the right system to genuinely outplay Liverpool in midfield but in those two situations, nearly outside the overall tactical battle, they might have caused problems.

Asked after Saturday's defeat if he still had West Ham's backing, Bilic told BT Sport: "It's hard for me to talk about that now".

After that Mohamed Salah grabbed his second for Liverpool and West Ham were fortunate not to concede five or six.

But Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was delighted with his team's showing.

The heads were beginning to drop for Bilic's troops as Klopp's charges turned on the heat towards the final minutes of the first stanza, but could not add more goals to their two-goal cushion.

Manuel Lanzini had briefly dragged West Ham into the game at 2-1, but they finished being booed off for the second home match in a row. "As players we can be professional and do our best".

Yet the more direct approach got West Ham back into the game. for one full minute. It was simply woeful defending and summed up yet another miserable night for West Ham at the London Stadium.

Mane lasted 77 minutes despite having had only two training sessions, while Georginio Wijnaldum lasted the full game despite looking certain to miss the match with an ankle knock.

A mis-judged timing on the path of Joe Gomez saw Manuel Lanzini chest down Andre Ayew's cross to the back post before the Argentine poked the ball past Simon Mignolet to bring the Hammers back into the game but their celebration was shortlived. This was not one of them though the Hammers were just dreadfully flat, short of attacking spark or interplay between their attackers.

The bubbles were still streaming across the London Stadium when Liverpool immediately restored their two-goal lead.

"The global break does not change my situation, it makes no difference". The second goal we can call a lapse of concentration or unluckiness.
