Data preview as West Ham welcome Tottenham Hotspur in the EPL

West Ham secured a huge London derby win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon, edging their rivals 1-0 thanks to a second-half Michail Antonio goal.

David Moyes’ men moved into the top four of the Premier League with the home victory, making it back-to-back wins this week after their comfortable Europa League outing against Genk on Thursday. Tottenham, meanwhile, suffered their second straight loss, following their defeat by Vitesse in the Europa Conference League – also on Thursday. The result saw Nuno Espirito Santo’s team drop to sixth in the table, too, as the Portuguese’s time as Spurs boss continues to disappoint fans of the north London club.

While the match at the London Stadium largely lacked the fireworks that this fixture so often produces, Antonio provided the spark for West Ham celebrations in the 72nd minute, when he stuck out a leg to convert an Aaron Cresswell corner at the near post. It was Antonio’s sixth goal of the season – his fifth in the Premier League – and marked Cresswell’s third assist of the week after his contributions in the home win against Genk. Follow all the fallout from West Ham’s Premier League victory over rivals Tottenham Hotspur below.

Manchester United vs Liverpool result: Mohamed Salah scores hat-trick in humiliating rout

Imagine if Liverpool had actually played well. As such, it would be hard to imagine any other outcome than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer losing his job – except this is Manchester United.

This is Manchester United.

And here they were, 4-0 down at half-time to their greatest rivals, to ultimately lose 5-0 but in a way that felt like 9-0. They were fortunate it wasn’t much worse, but that was in its own way an indictment. Liverpool could just ease off.

Reaction from Mo Salah

Liverpool’s hat-trick hero spoke to Sky Sports after the match and was obviously delighted with the performance of his team. He said:

I think it is great to win 5-0 here, we knew before the game it would be tough if we did not play our game.

“We knew they will come and try to give everything so we had to give 100%.We just tried to play our football and play in between the lines to create more chances. We did that and were lucky to score.

“As long as the team keep winning I am happy and to give my best to the team to win. The first goal I gave to Naby Keita to score.

“We know what it takes to win the Premier League, we did it two years ago. A big win here but still only three points.

“We try to win each game and try to win the title. We need to play to win everything. From our heads from pre-season, we need to win the Premier League and hopefully we go for that.

“After half-time we were talking in the dressing room to just keep going and score as many as we could.”

Man Utd 0 - 5 Liverpool

That defeat is Manchester United’s heaviest ever defeat at home to Liverpool, whilst it’s the first time they have lost by 5+ goals at home without scoring themselves since February 1955 when they lost 5-0 against Man City.

Manchester United vs Liverpool player ratings: Mohamed Salah nets hat-trick as Reds eviscerate rivals

Liverpool demolished an abysmal Manchester United on Sunday to secure a 5-0 derby victory and go within one point of Premier League leaders Chelsea.

It took Jurgen Klopp’s side just five minutes to open the scoring at Old Trafford, with Naby Keita the first to find the net.

Diogo Jota struck next, before Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick to pile more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the United dugout and more misery on the home fans.

Man Utd 0 - 5 Liverpool

Liverpool are back up to second place in the table, one point behind leaders Chelsea. They’re still in the hunt for the title.

With just nine games played Manchester United’s title hopes are pretty much over. They’re seventh in the table, eight points behind Chelsea, and have a lot of problems.

Jurgen Klopp wlaks over to the Liverpool fans and celebrates. They give him a loud cheer, it’s a good day for the Liverpool supporters.

Full-time: Man Utd 0 - 5 Liverpool

90+3 mins: It’s over. Liverpool completely relaxed for the last 25 minutes and let United off the hook. Jurgen Klopp was obviously happy with just five goals.

It’s been an awful day for Manchester United. The inquisition into what went wrong will begin almost immediately. Liverpool have humiliated their rivals today.

90 mins: Three minutes of added time to play. Time for one last goal?

Man Utd 0 - 5 Liverpool

87 min: Jota is brought down by Wan-Bissaka who gets booked. That’s six yellow cards and a red for Manchester United today. A sure sign of a team not drilled well defensively.

OFF THE BAR! Cavani finds the woodwork!

Man Utd 0 - 5 Liverpool

84 mins: The free kick is whipped deep into the box where Scott McTominay is free. He heads the ball into the six-yard box and finds Cavani who turns the ball towards goal and belts it into the crossbar! How’s he missed from there? It’s just not happening for Man Utd.
