DREAM TEAM POINTS: West Ham 0 Liverpool 4

Liverpool move back into third place after West Ham fail to turn up at the London Stadium

Liverpool are within touching distance of Champions League football next season after thrashing West Ham 4-0 at the London Stadium.

Daniel Sturridge scored his first goal since January, while Philippe Coutinho hit a brilliant brace before Divock Origi fired in a fourth to complete the Liverpool rout that moves them back up to third in the Premier League table.

The result means a win against Middlesbrough on the final day of the season will guarantee Liverpool a place in the top-four.

West Ham, in comparison, failed to show up, and manager Slaven Bilic will be bitterly disappointed with his side’s performance in their final home game of the season.

To add to their embarassment, the players had to perform a lap-of-honour at full-time to thank their fans for their support throughout the season.

But most of them had gone home well before then.

It’s a ghost town! 

Fans were told to remain in their seats with the players scheduled to do a lap of the stadium when the match finished.

But after another thumping defeat at home this season, who can really blame them if they headed for the pub, instead?
