Liverpool 19 points clear in Premier League, beats West Ham 2-0

LONDON (AP) – Mohamed Salah scored a penalty and set up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s goal as Liverpool beat West Ham 2-0 Wednesday to go 19 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

The game had been postponed in December because of Liverpool playing in the Club World Cup in Qatar, a trophy which joined the European Cup from last season in the Anfield trophy cabinet.

Now it seems a matter of when – not if – Liverpool ends its 30-year English title drought given the team’s commanding lead with 14 games remaining.
