Liverpool were a “joy to watch” as they thumped West Ham United 4-1 to move above Manchester United into second place in the Premier League, said manager Jurgen Klopp.
Forwards Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all scored in the second half in a resounding Anfield win for the Reds.
Klopp told BBC Sport: “You hope for a game like this, and you want to see it, but it’s really rare that you get it.
Emre Can headed Liverpool ahead from a corner – the Reds’ 100th goal this season – after Salah had been denied by a post.
Salah made it 2-0 with an instinctive, low finish after a delicious pass by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, before Firmino added the third after a mistake by goalkeeper Adrian.
Substitute Michail Antonio’s quality, low finish gave West Ham hope – but Mane, who had hit the post moments before, completed a fine Liverpool win.
“The quality of the players Liverpool have got at the moment caused us big problems,” said Hammers boss David Moyes.
