LIVERPOOL battered West Ham 4-0 this afternoon at the London Stadium, but how did each player get on?

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic on Andy Carroll's injury problems: "Andy is kind of a player that has such a big impact on our game that we won't give up on him".

With two Premier League games remaining, the good news is that Liverpool's fate is still in their own hands.

"We can talk about the referee, but I'm very disappointed with the result", Bilic said after the game.

Arsenal are hoping to see West Ham do them a favour by stopping Liverpool from taking all three points from the London Stadium.

The victory takes Liverpool back to third — four points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal.

Out of their 19 league games at home this season, the Hammers have lost eight of them - winning just seven.

Divock Origi broke his duck as well after a frustrating spell in the team but the most important thing for anyone at this point is the fact that Liverpool has ensured that they have a chance of securing Champions League football next season.

Sturridge was last part of a Liverpool starting XI in the league on January 2 for the 2-2 draw with Sunderland.

The Reds have already struggled against West Ham this season, recovering from a half-time deficit to earn a 2-2 draw at Anfield in December. That's our job. I thought we did really well.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed he spoke to Philippe Coutinho before the West Ham game about where he should be playing. "But if we can be as focused and fluent as today then it will be hard (for Middlesbrough)". Meanwhile, Liverpool was left cursing their luck after Joel Matip nodded Philippe Coutinho's flag-kick against the bar with their first meaningful foray forward.

West Ham were presented with the ideal opportunity to level matters just prior to the interval, but Ayew somehow managed to twice hit the post from point-blank range.

At the end of the month we'll go through the results of the month's polls and vote The Liverpool Offside's player of the month and, come the end of the season, those monthly results will help to determine your TLO player of the season for 2016-17.

The incredible double miss summed up the former Swansea striker's miserable first season with West Ham and could have changed the course of the match.
