Premier League table: Liverpool displace Manchester United from second position

Saturday's 4-1 win over West Ham United at Anfield pushed Liverpool up to second until Manchester United's win the following day dropped them back to third. That haul has equalled Luis Suarez's tally from his sensational 2013-14 season, his final one on Merseyside, when the Reds almost ended their long wait for a domestic title.

The 25-year-old has also become the most prolific left-footer in the history of the EPL, having netted his 20th goal to surpass former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler who scored 19 with his left foot in the 1994-1995 season. Salah is so good he is now even usurping "God".

"He's obviously doing well and scored another nice goal".

To his credit, he remained focused on the task at hand - shutting down the deadly attacking trident of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. "We got it. It was a joy to watch", Klopp said.

"Now we need to stay angry with the rest of the world". You told me that we struggle around European games but we won before and we won after. "Honestly we played very good from the beginning".

Dwight Gayle also scored twice, but Newcastle United failed to back up their stunning win over Manchester United as they blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Bournemouth.

The Rolling Stones ended the first part of their " No Filter " tour in October with a series of sell-out shows in France. They will also make stops in Dublin, Berlin , Marseille , Stuttgart , Prague and Warsaw .

Liverpool spent four days in Marbella after their heroics in Porto as their early exit from the FA Cup ensured a weekend off.

"Now we know so much about each other, now we like each other, now we have better times with each other in private and on the football pitch. That is how it is", Klopp said.

However, after Mane had spurned one golden opportunity to get in on the goalscoring action when he shot against the post, he rounded off a fine afternoon for Liverpool by diverting Robertson's square pass into the net 13 minutes from time. "I'm happy, of course, when I can score and help the team".

Liverpool emerged for the second half in determined mood and doubled their advantage when Salah stroked past Adrian after a surging run from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"We have a goal to speak about and, as a team, we are going to do our best". They came within seven minutes of a draw at Manchester City on 3 December, while they have beaten Chelsea and drawn with Tottenham and Arsenal since Moyes took charge in November. He scores goals, he creates chances and he gets assists.

"We always thought we had a chance of scoring today but we couldn't keep their front players quiet".
