Arsenal's top four hopes rest on Middlesbrough as Liverpool hammer West Ham

Arsenal's top four hopes rest on Middlesbrough as Liverpool hammer West Ham

Divock Origi added the fourth goal but it was Coutinho who drew Klopp's most fulsome praise.

"[At West Ham] you could feel that we were all together and we just gave everything, we showed our quality and I think everybody enjoyed the game", he explained.

"We could have scored the first goal with [Sam] Byram, we should have equalised and the third goal was a odd decision", said the Hammers boss. So yes, a ideal afternoon.

Anything other than a victory at West Ham's London Stadium would have left Liverpool relying on other results going their way but once Daniel Sturridge put them ahead in the 35th minute they were relatively comfortable. He's a top player and an experienced player, and he's still only 24, so I think that's very special. We tried our best and went out there to try and put on a performance.

"We have to be honest about it".

"We wanted to avoid complacency but it was obviously there at least subconsciously".

"It was an important game for us".

Coutinho's exquisite through-ball from well inside his own half changed the course of the match.

Until England striker Sturridge, making his first league start since the first week of January, opened the scoring Liverpool had seemed nervy as West Ham looked intent on putting a spanner in their top-four hopes.

Playing its last game at White Hart Lane after 118 years, second placed Tottenham responded to the end of its title dreams by stylishly bringing down the curtain on 118 years at the famous north London stadium. Subs: Sofiane Feghouli (for Calleri, 55mins) 5, Ashley Fletcher (for Fonte, 55mins) 5, Robert Snodgrass (for Ayew, 77mins) 5.

There were warning signs for West Ham as Sturridge, making just his sixth Premier League start of the season, threatened with a couple of long-range efforts before Coutinho provided the clear opening he'd been waiting for.
