Bilic without number of key players for visit of Liverpool

However, it is unlikely the 25-year-old will feature from the start as the Reds take on West Ham, with boss Klopp stating in his pre-match press conference that a cameo appearance of 20-25 minutes was more likely.

In contrast to Bilic's woes, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has silenced his critics for the moment thanks to the Reds' third successive win in all competitions.

"There are two situations", added Bilic.

Liverpool's first two goals, scored within two minutes midway through the first half by Salah and Joel Matip, both came from corners - the first a West Ham one which was cleared and 13 seconds later the ball ended up in the home net.

Liverpool broke incredibly quickly after clearing the ball and Sadio Mane fed Mohamed Salah for the easiest of goals.

"Then it was key for us to make sure we defended well; West Ham came out in the second half and made it tough, it was a really intense game".

What Liverpool surely required was someone who could drop off, create three-against-two situations in midfield to bypass Noble and Pedro Obiang.

David Moyes for West Ham?




West Ham plan to sack under-fire coach Slaven Bilic in the next few days and are lining up David Moyes to replace him, a source close to the club told ESPN FC.

There have been occasions when West Ham have been genuinely awful under Bilic.

Just as it looked the home side might mount some form of comeback, Liverpool struck again through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain netting his first Premier League goal for the club. This was not one of them though the Hammers were just dreadfully flat, short of attacking spark or interplay between their attackers.

If Liverpool's opener was crafted with expert execution, their second three minutes later was a more fortuitous effort.

And speaking after Liverpool's victory at the London Stadium, Oxlade-Chamberlain vowed to continue to improve.

"We wanted to be risky on the break and the first goal showed how deadly we can be-from defending a corner to scoring as quickly as we did".

The Hammers board have finally lost patience with the Croat, and he faces the chop during the upcoming global break. The second goal we can call a lapse of concentration or unluckiness.
