We Want Second - Liverpool Star Sends Out Message After West Ham Beaten

Roberto Firmino was cleared of racially abusing Mason Holgate

It wasn't all that long ago that Liverpool were languishing mid-table and looking nearly certain to fall short in the race for Champions League football, but as we creep towards the business end of the season, the Reds have leapfrogged bitter rivals Manchester United in to second place after sweeping aside West Ham United at Anfield.

Goals from Emre Can (30), Mohamed Salah (50), Firmino (57) and Sadio Mane (77) did the damage as the Hammers were outclassed.

Liverpool leapfrogged Manchester United, who play Chelsea on Sunday, as Klopp's side took this season's goal tally to 103 during a routine victory at Anfield.

"We always thought we had a chance of scoring today but we couldn't keep their front players quiet", said West Ham boss David Moyes. "They had a hard situation and they sorted it, they are in a good way, so to play a game like we did today is really not [to be taken] for granted".

Victory at the Vitality Stadium would have moved Newcastle level on points with their hosts, but Rafael Benitez's men will continue to look anxiously over their shoulders at the bottom three following their late capitulation.

Liverpool will be up first followed by Brighton vs Swansea.

West Brom are now seven points adrift of safety at the foot of the table as Huddersfield struck twice in eight minutes at the start of the second period through Rajiv van La Parra and Steve Mounie to win 2-1 at the Hawthorns.

Murray delighted with brace for Brighton win
Glenn Murray has scored twice as Brighton beat Swansea 4-1 to boost its hopes of another season in the English Premier League. Swansea - who were truly very bad - got one back with five minutes left but even that was courtesy of an own goal.

Swansea also scored late at Brighton but Lewis Dunk's own goal proved academic with the home side already 3-0 up.

Substitute Manolo Gabbiadini scored a 90th-minute equalizer for Southampton in the 1-1 draw at Burnley after referee Bobby Madley inadvertently blocked off home midfielder Ashley Westwood to allow the Saints to break clear.

Earlier, Stoke boss Paul Lambert hailed Jack Butland as the "best goalkeeper in Britain" despite an own goal from the England global costing his side the chance to move out of the bottom three in a 1-1 draw at Leicester.

Watford beat Everton 1-0 thanks to a 79th-minute goal by Troy Deeney.

Liverpool's persistence paid off just before the half-hour mark as they took the lead from a Salah corner.
