While he isn't the most prolific front man in the Premier League, his hard-working attitude and skill on the ball makes him stand out to the Reds' supporters.

There was little sympathy for the beleaguered Bilic from Liverpool, who wrapped up a resounding success with Salah's 12th strike of the campaign, lifting Jurgen Klopp's men back above Burnley into sixth. We had two No.6s, clear No.6s, two real midfielders on the wing in Sadio (Mane) and (Alex) Oxlade-Chamerlain and Roberto (Firmino) and Mo (Salah) had to really defend.

Just prior to Salah's opening goal Liverpool had lined up as 4-2-3-1 in possession and 3-4-3 without the ball; alternating to a 2-4-4 once Joel Matip had grabbed the second.

West Ham owner David Sullivan has traditionally been unwilling to sack managers mid-season, or pay compensation to appoint replacements and Moyes would be available without a cost.

Mane, who was restored to the Liverpool starting lineup by Juergen Klopp after missing five games with a hamstring injury, set up both of Mohamed Salah's goals.

Among other experienced lads, Ayew is expected to lead the club's renaissance, having netted three times in his last two games in all competitions. Lanzini floated around on the periphery, forced to spend too long on the left rather than in the centre where he can only play when West Ham have possession.

And West Ham are lining up the ex-Manchester United boss as his replacement until the end of the season.

Klopp revealed how Liverpool had hardly practised the 4-4-2 formation that they deployed against West Ham.

West Ham got back into the game 10 minutes after the break. Oxlade-Chamberlain's goal, Liverpool's second rebound of the day after Hart had saved his initial shot, deflated the home support and many headed for the exits when, 15 minutes from time, Salah slammed in his second of the day with a fine left-footed half-volley into the far corner.

"I have to talk to the chairman because, of course, we have to discuss this defeat", Bilic told BT Sport.
