Liverpool have won against West Ham United in the Premier League with a margin of 4-1. Both team were keen to get a win for different perspective in the League Table. The Reds’ hot form had clearly demarcated them as the favourites in this match. Liverpool have thrashed Porto in the first leg of round of 16 of UEFA Champions League with a margin of 5-0 at the home of Porto. It seems that the Reds have already qualified for the quarter final of the biggest event of Europe. Jurgen Klopp will be immensely happy with the performance of his boys against a top European side.
They are already out of the contention of FA Cup and Carabao Cup and now their focus will be only in the Premier League and in this biggest event of Europe- UEFA Champions League. The chance of winning a silverware at the end of the season is only possible in the Champions League for the Reds. So Jurgen Klopp will be now more focused in the Champions League to be a strong contender to lift the trophy this season.
The Senegal international was not in his great form this season. He was the main man upfront for Liverpool in the previous season and helped Liverpool to earn the qualification in the UEFA Champions League this season. But in this season, he was not performing in that way. Mohammed Salah have taken away all the attention from him in this season. On the other hand, Mane was not getting his goal in the recent matches for the Reds. He was completely getting subsided and Klopp might have been thinking to bench him. But the player have proved his potential at the right time for the Reds. His hat-trick was phenomenal and it was needed for both the player and the Club.

The talking points of the match are :

Mohammed Salah provided an assist and scored a Goal against West Ham United to prove his master class. The player is proving his worth day by day for Liverpool. He had scored a great goal and provided the assist for the goal of Emre Can in the first half. He has been a top player for the Merseyside outfit this season and his stature as a player is only growing with every top performance that he puts in.
2. Liverpool Moved To Second In The League Table :
Liverpool have moved to the second place in the Premier League Table and it is really one step forward to finish at the top four after the end of the season. They will want to now retain this spot if not win and will also try their best to make an impact in whatever way they can.
3. Klopp’s Tactics Working:
A couple of really good consecutive wins show that Jurgen Klopp’s plans are finally being implemented right and the team is back to good form. They are winning games by big margins, which shows their overall strength in attack and midfield. Can’s involvement will be a huge boost too.
