  • That's it. Liverpool take all three points after a brief scare in the second half. Coutinho was brilliant, Suarez scored again and the doom and gloom after last weekend's defeat to Hull is well and truly lifted. They go 2nd and loud cheers as the scorelines from elsewhere are read out. For West Ham it is a second away defeat in four days and they remain far too close to the relegation zone for comfort. Thanks for joining me here at Anfield today on a good afternoon for Brendan Rodgers side.

  • Clever pass for Allen sees Kelly in down the left but his cross is cut out.

  • James Collins is booked as he brings down Coutinho. The free-kick is straight at the goalkeeper.

  • Nearly another for Suarez as he gets in again but perhaps tries to be too clever and take it round Jaaskelainen only for the ball to go out for a goal kick.

  • And worse again. Suarez lashes a shot towards goal, probably off target but it hits Joey O'Brien and goes in off the bar. 4-1 and Anfield is a much happier place again.

  • It goes from bad to worse for West Ham as Kevin Nolan is sent off for a studs up challenge into the back of Henderson's calf.

  • 3-1! Surely game over now. That man again, Luis Suarez. Coutinho picks out Johnson with a lovely ball and Johnson's cross is equally impressive to pick out the Uruguayan at the far post. He makes no mistake with the header, planting it past Jaaskelainen.

  • Another Liverpool substitution sees Martin Kelly replace Jon Flanagan. One local lad for another.

  • Coutinho has been in the main but his needless flick as the hosts look to maintain possession does not please the fans. West Ham fail to capitalise to the Brazilian relief.

  • It's getting scrappy now and the Anfield faithful are getting very agitated.

  • First booking of the game goes to Joe Cole as he lunges in on Joe Allen.

  • Moses is on and Sterling who played well but will feel he should have had a goal goes off.

  • Mo Diame now fires a shot wide for West Ham. The visitors are looking increasingly confident, the same can't be said of the hosts right now.

  • Liverpool fail to clear and James Collins shot is guided just wide by Maiga. The home crowd getting nervy.

  • West Ham corner. Joe Cole will deliver it...

  • Henderson is up and will continue. Liverpool on the attack, the goal hasn't changed that. It looks like Victor Moses will be with us shortly though

  • Liverpool respond by going down the other end and winning a corner. It's cleared but play is stopped as Jordan Henderson stays down in the penalty area.

  • West Ham have a goal back! And it's another own goal! Demel's cross is nodded back in by Matt Jarvis and Martin Skrtel can only divert the ball beyond Mignolet and into his own net. Game on!

  • In amongst the relentless attacking from the home side, Joey O'Brien has replaced James Tomkins.

  • Wave after wave coming at West Ham at the minute and Allen tees up Sterling who is denied by a fine save from Jaaskelainen to his left.
