Bilic's future at West Ham has been the subject of constant speculation for several weeks after a disappointing start to the season. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

Plenty of West Ham fans have been calling for Slaven Bilic to be sacked during the first half of their match with Liverpool. Find out by following our live matchcast. West Ham boast neither the technical quality nor the right system to genuinely outplay Liverpool in midfield, but in those two situations, nearly outside the overall tactical battle, they might have caused problems.

Less than three minutes later the lead was doubled.

Salah took his tally to seven, one fewer than Premier League top scorer Harry Kane, and was joined on the scoresheet for Liverpool by Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Two minutes later it was 2-0 as Salah's corner nearly forced Mark Noble into an own goal and when Hart pushed the ball out, Matip was on hand to prod in the rebound.

Mohammed Salah opened the scoring for Liverpool, as the away side hit their struggling opponents with a devastating counter attack.

Saudi air defence forces, quoted by broadcaster Al-Arabiya, said they intercepted the missile north-east of the capital. Rebels continue to hold much of Yemen and the United Nations has warned the country is on the brink of starvation .

Huddersfield Town beat struggling West Bromwich Albion 1-0 at home to stay safely in mid-table - Dutchman Rajiv van La Parra deciding it with a curling shot just before halftime.

The Hammers board have finally lost patience with the Croat, and he faces the chop during the upcoming global break. Sane picked the ball up outside his own penalty area, raced into the Hammers half, stormed in on goal then unselfishly passed to the in-coming Salah.

And West Ham are lining up the ex-Manchester United boss as his replacement until the end of the season. Swansea City dropped into the relegation zone after slumping to a home defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion. A deep cross from the right found Lanzini, who brilliantly shrugged off Joe Gomez, brought the ball down on his chest and lifted the ball into the net off the far post, a genuinely excellent finish boasting both strength and skill.

West Ham came close to making it 3-2 in the 62nd minute from a free-kick from the left by Lanzini, but Javier Hernandez's flicked header went inches off target.

"I have to talk to the chairman, we are going to discuss this defeat", he said.
