Egyptian nets 23rd PL goal of the season as Reds win 4-1 against West Ham at Anfield

Liverpool went above Manchester United into second place by beating West Ham United 4-1 at Anfield.

The hosts took the lead on 29 minutes when Emre Can headed in Mohamed Salah's corner for their 100th goal of the season in all competitions.

Shortly after half-time Salah moved level with Harry Kane on 23 goals for the season after good work from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Roberto Firmino made it 3-0 before the hour, collecting Can's pass and rounding Adrian for an empty net.

Michail Antonio pulled one back a minute after coming on as a substitute but Sadio Mane's close-range finish restored Liverpool's three-goal advantage.

The Reds are a point above Man Utd, who host Chelsea on Sunday. The Hammers drop to 13th.
