History for Bilic boys; WEST HAM ..........................3 LIVERPOOL .........................0.

WEST Ham manager Slaven Bilic hailed a long-awaited victory at An-field as one for the club's history books.

The Hammers ended a 52-year wait for a league win at Liverpool with a stylish 3-0 success after goals from Manuel Lanzini, Mark Noble and Diafra Sakho.

Even a harshly-awarded red card for Noble, after the hosts had seen Philippe Coutinho dismissed for two bookable offences, could not take the shine off the day.

"It is three points but it is one of those games which, for the fans especially, it is more than three points," said the Croatian.

"Fifty-two years without winning here at a special stadium and we did it in style, we didn't nick it.

"It was a great performance in 90 per cent aspects of the modern game, so it is more than three points.

"It is great for everyone. It is one of those games that will be written in the history books of our club - you can't ask for more than winning 3-0 away at Liverpool."

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers bemoaned sloppy goals for their first defeat of the season after three successive clean sheets.
