The Meyerside Reds got the better side of the visitors, West Ham, at the Anfield stadium in Sunday, winning by 3-1.

Mohamed Salah opened the score sheet in the 15th minute after he was tripped by Aguerd in the penalty box.

Salah slotted the spot kick into the centre of the goal post, leaving Areola dive in the wrong direction.

The visitors got an equaliser just three minutes before he half-time courtesy of Jarred Bowen’s 42nd-minute strike.

Nunez almost got a lead for the home team as Salah managed to tip the ball towards him in a crowded West Ham penalty area.

The Uruguayan fired the ball wide off the post.

Finally, in the 60th minute, Nunez extended Liverpool’s lead as he received a wonderful tipped pass from Mac Allister.

The striker took his time well enough before firing the ball past Areola.

Substitute Diogo Jota came in for Luis Diaz nine minutes to the end of the game.

Jota registered his name on the score sheet four minutes after coming in.

Robertson took a corner kick which was headed down his direction by Van Dijk. The Portuguese slotted in the ball in a cool manner.

Today’s victory over the Hammers extends Liverpool’s unbeaten record in all competitions, after playing a draw in their season opener against Chelsea.

With their fifth win in the league, Liverpool stay two points behind table leaders Manchester City.
