Liverpool stretch EPL lead to 19 points

Liverpool moved 19 points clear at the top of the Premier League after goals from Mohamed Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain swept aside West Ham 2-0.

Salah grabbed his first goal in London since May 2018 with a penalty and Oxlade-Chamberlain struck after the break as the Reds continued their inexorable march towards the title.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were not at their devastating best, but they did not have to be to make it 23 wins from 24 matches and stay on course for a 19th league title, and a first for 30 years.

Nevertheless, David Moyes’ men will host Brighton on Saturday heartened by the fact they were not on the end of the battering many expected. But it was by no means Liverpool at full throttle and they should have been pegged back after the break when Declan Rice’s cross found Manuel Lanzini eight yards out, but the Argentinian mis-kicked wildly.
