It was a heady Sunday afternoon at Anfield as Liverpool swept West Ham aside in a comprehensive 4-0 victory.

A double by Senegal star Sadio Mane, in addition to the opener by Mohamed Salah, saw the Reds in charge against the Hammers, with the returning Daniel Sturridge rounding things off just before fulltime.
