Liverpool stirred 19 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a routine win that intense the pressure on West Ham at all-time low of the table.
Mohamed Salah’s first-half penalty and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s composed effort after the break maintained the Reds’ relentless march towards a primary top-flight title since 1990.
The result leaves the Hammers in seventeenth and higher than 18th-placed Bournemouth, and Watford in nineteenth, on goal distinction.
Backed by a vociferous crowd within London stadium, David Moyes’ side had started in determined fashion, limiting Liverpool to few efforts on target.
However, Issa Diop’s foul on Divock Origi allowed salah to put Liverpool ahead from a penalty and their 1st shot on target.
The Hammers did have chances to get in the playing period, notably via Manuel Lanzini’s scuffed close-range shot and Robert Snodgrass’ headlong effort.
But Liverpool continually looked capable of extending their advantage, with Oxlade-Chamberlain doubling their lead with a right-foot shot into all-time low left corner after smart work from Jordan Henderson and salah.
It ensured a snug conclusion to the evening for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are now unbeaten in 41 Premier League matches.
