Liverpool are sitting in second after a comfortable 4-1 victory against West Ham at Anfield.

With Manchester United and Chelsea facing each other on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp’s side knew they could put pressure on both of those sides with three points.

It took a while for the Reds to get going, though, with the Hammers looking to continue their good league form which has seen them lose just once in their previous eight matches.

And they were looking good until Emre Can headed in from Mohamed Salah’s corner in the 29th-minute.

They were still in the match at half-time but, within 12 minutes of the restart, it looked to be game over.

Salah latched onto Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s pass to double their lead for his 31st goal of the season and, six minutes later, it was 3-0.

Roberto Firmino beat Adrian to Emre Can’s through ball and was left with an empty net.

But this is a Brazilian striker in sensational form, with high confidence.

He was never just going to roll it into the back of the net as normal.

Instead, he produced a no-look finish. Cheeky, arrogant and simply brilliant.


Take a look:

Firmino has done this on a few occasions before and it's something that the Liverpool fans love.


Check out their reaction:

They probably wouldn’t have enjoyed it if he had missed, though…

The Liverpool fans were still celebrating Firmino’s finish when Michail Antonio pulled a goal back for the visitors just one minute after coming onto the pitch.

But Sadio Mane made it 4-1 to ensure Liverpool will be sitting in second when they watch Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte do battle at Old Trafford.
