Oxlade-Chamberlain on Liverpool Intensity, Adjustment from Arsenal

West Ham team news: Bilic without number of key players for visit of Liverpool

Klopp revealed how Liverpool had hardly practised the 4-4-2 formation that they deployed against West Ham.

SLAVEN BILIC is set to be sacked by West Ham in the coming days - and replaced by David Moyes.

Liverpool's defence has been regularly criticised this term and the Reds are widely considered to be vulnerable from set pieces, with Jurgen Klopp's men often all at sea when good quality balls are put into the box.

"I don't know. There are two situations".

The opener came when Joel Matip cleared Manuel Lanzini's out-swinging corner and the ball broke perfectly for the devastating counter-attacking duo of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to launch a sudden breakaway.

"It's a very hard situation".

David Moyes for West Ham?

Two early goals from set-pieces, though, meant Liverpool didn't need to prove themselves risky in open play. Swansea City dropped into the relegation zone after slumping to a home defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion.

Lanzini's throughball deflected kindly into the path of the Ghanaian, who lifted his effort over the onrushing Simon Mignolet only to be denied by the outside of the post. But aside from that somewhat fortunate chance, there was otherwise nothing to shout about here.

The genial Croatian has been under pressure at West Ham pretty much since they left Upton Park.

Just as it looked the home side might mount some form of comeback, Liverpool struck again through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain netting his first Premier League goal for the club. Carroll was blocked off, complained to the referee and that was about it.

Despite his unsuccessful time at United and further unproductive spells at Real Sociedad and Sunderland, he boasts a wealth of managerial experience and is seen as someone who can steady the ship at West Ham, the source said.

And speaking after Liverpool's victory at the London Stadium, Oxlade-Chamberlain vowed to continue to improve.

The Hammers board have finally lost patience with the Croat, and he faces the chop during the upcoming worldwide break.

A weak challenge in the Liverpool half saw Aaron Cresswell isolated three on one and Senegal star Mane found Salah who beat Joe Hart from close range in the 22nd minute for his 11th goal of the season in all competitions, sixth in the league.
