How important is it West Ham avoid defeat at Swansea this weekend?

Posted March 02, 2018

The Egyptian has scored 31 goals in all competitions becoming the first Liverpool player to do so since Luis Suarez left for Barcelona, which was more than four odd years ago.

Mane will be looking to continue the fine form in front of goal when Liverpool take on Newcastle United on March 3. It's always good when you train something and score like that. Sometimes he overdoes it, but in a good way.

"We play Chelsea late in the season, we play United in about two weeks I think, very decisive as well. I'm happy, of course, when I can score and help the team". It shows his hunger to win.

"Sometimes it is hard but it's always learning and trying to improve yourself".

Mane was then denied again, this time by a post, after being played in by Firmino, but made no mistake when the Brazilian crossed moments later, completing victory by lifting over Adrian from close range.

Emre Can also struck while Salah and Mane both hit the woodwork in Liverpool's dominant display. "We have got a great team".

Back in October when Liverpool lost 4-1 to Tottenham Hotspur, a top-four Premier League finish looked like a remote scenario.

Alexander-Arnold is also relishing a renewed battle for Liverpool's right-back position as Nathaniel Clyne nears his long-awaited return to first-team action.

"It was tough, Anfield is always a tough place to come", Zabaleta said.

Liverpool were in entertaining mood on Saturday against West Ham and Roberto Firmino summed up their flamboyance with another no-look finish.

However, there is a shock selection in goal with Jack Butland rated the most impressive keeper in the top flight despite scoring an own-goal against Leicester. They were better than us. We need to move on and work during the week to put in a good performance against Swansea because that is a massive game.

There also remains a three-point gap between David Moyes' men and the bottom three and they face the first team now in that relegation zone this weekend in Swansea.
