Jurgen Klopp hails 'perfect afternoon' after Liverpool brush aside West Ham

Klopp: Liverpool are close to Chelsea Klopp: Would Chelsea be champions with Liverpool's injuries?!

However, Liverpool spurned a glorious chance to take the lead despite the Saints' setup as James Milner missed a penalty in the second half which was gloriously saved by Fraser Forster.

And they will make a player-plus-cash offer to Jurgen Klopp, with Rafinha heading to Anfield.

Liverpool eventually doubled their advantage on 57 minutes courtesy of Coutinho, who found the bottom corner with a precise finish after jinking his way into space.

Philippe Coutinho had a stunning match against West Ham, grabbing two goals and an assist, keeping Liverpool in third place.

The £20million forward prodded Manuel Lanzini's corner onto the far post from two yards out, and, as the ball rebounded to him, he hit the same upright again before Mignolet gathered.

Losses at Hull, Bournemouth and Leicester have been less than savoury results but trips to London in particular have been kind to Liverpool this season. The results of these meetings remain on West Ham's side.

However, Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge, who both came off the bench against Southampton, should be fit for selection.

Liverpool's form has been fairly inconsistent of late to say the least but there is one positive for us fans of Jürgen Klopp's men. After losing nearly half of the season's matches, West Ham was in the risk zone, but the turning point was the victory on Swansea on April 8.

Injuries to key personnel makes the task a bit more hard but Slaven Bilic's men will have the belief that they can beat Liverpool at home, especially after beating one of the best teams in the league last weekend.

Georginio Wijnaldum 7 - A quiet performance in the first half but he grew into life after the break.

"We still have two games and we are very ambitious that we get six points and climb up the table".

They're weak. Liverpool should find it pretty easy to take points away from the Olympic Stadium - should be the operative word there.

The best spot for him to play is in the attacking right wing, moving Roberto Firmino into his more natural central position and keeping Coutinho on the right.

They are the better team and they want the win a more than West Ham.
