Salah scores twice as Liverpool thrash sorry West Ham

Georginio Wijnaldum

West Ham have lost six of their 11 Premier League games and sit a point above the relegation zone.

(Can you even remember the last time we scored from a corner kick?!) Salah's delivery found Sadio Mane, who flicked it on toward goal.

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, whilst the West Ham board have been incredibly patient, losing to Liverpool may force their hand.

Gophers-Michigan game now starting 7:30 pm Central
Michigan State officials project that the game won't resume until 4:15 p.m., although that is not an official time for a restart. Ultimately, not even Mother Nature could save the Nittany Lions from the tail end of a three-game East Division maelstrom.

The in-form Andre Ayew came into this clash with three goals in his past two outings and he nearly added to that tally in the ninth minute.

Sadly, for Slaven Bilic's side, that wasn't the case; instead, West Ham conceded twice in three first-half minutes from a counter-attack and a set-piece, essentially finding themselves defeated after half an hour.

This time it was from a corner kick.

Further up the field Coutinho is set to miss this third fixture in a row due to a groin issue, but Liverpool expect their Brazilian star to make his return during the visit of Southampton following the upcoming worldwide break.

The country's political future is unclear after their leader resigns, attacking Iran and Hezbollah for meddling in Arab affairs. Several Hezbollah members are being tried in absentia for the killing by a UN-backed tribunal in The Hague, Netherlands.

And West Ham are lining up the ex-Manchester United boss as his replacement until the end of the season.

"The pressure mounts game by game and at this moment it is big", Bilic, 49, told BBC Sport.

Salah took his tally to seven, one fewer than Premier League top scorer Harry Kane, and was joined on the scoresheet for Liverpool by Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The home side demonstrated they had learned from their first-half mistakes when Winston Reid prevented a carbon copy of Liverpool's opener by cynically hacking down Mane on the break in the opening period of the second half, the ultimate "taking one for the team" challenge.

"I had the confidence to come to England again, I am not surprised", said Salah when he was asked post-match if he could have imagined his start to life in a red shirt would go so well.

Then he practiced two more times before he was shut down and given a cortisone shot to see if the soreness would subside. Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will miss the remainder of the 2017 season, the team announced Thursday .

West Ham came close to making it 3-2 in the 62nd minute from a free-kick from the left by Lanzini, but Javier Hernandez's flicked header went inches off target.
