There was a minute of silence before the game, with the London Stadium uniting to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Liverpool started slowly but exploded into life with two goals in just two minutes and 37 seconds of play—the first coming through Salah, who finished off a devastating counter-attack.
The lead was doubled almost instantly through Matip, who pounced to convert a loose ball from close range, handing the Reds a commanding 2-0 lead at the break.
Lanzini pulled one back for the Hammers, but just 57 seconds later—with West Ham‘s celebratory bubbles still blowing—the impressive Oxlade-Chamberlain followed up for his first Reds’ Premier League goal to restore the two-goal lead.
With Klopp’s men now firmly in control, the excellent Salah grabbed his second of the game after good play from Mane to complete the scoring and seal a brilliant victory.
It was an excellent win and one which certainly pleased Klopp, with the Reds moving into a much healthier position in the table and retaining valuable momentum ahead of the international break.
International football now rudely intervenes just as the Reds rediscover positive form, meaning it’s two weeks until Liverpool are back in action with Southampton the visitors to Anfield.
