FOOTBALL Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez - 0

Liverpool 3-0 West Ham

Rafa Benitez on the race for fourth place: "We have to keep doing our job. It will be more difficult now because Tottenham won (against Chelsea), normally you would not expect them to win.

"But we have to be in a good position if they make a mistake.

"West Ham started the game pushing but as soon as we scored the first goal it was easier, we had more chances and we scored the second goal and the third one killed the game.

"It was important to score and control the game."

Gianfranco Zola: "I don't think it was our best performance. I think we started well and were comfortable on the pitch but the first goal changed things completely.

"I think we felt we couldn't come back from it. We all disappointed but it is not a moment to think too much about that.

"We made mistakes today. They were very costly and we didn't play very well.

"But we need to react straight away because on Saturday we have a very important game."
