Alexis Mac Allister believed Liverpool were deserving of three points against West Ham United on Sunday owing to a dominant second-half performance at Anfield.

The Reds secured a 3-1 victory in the Premier League clash thanks to Mohamed Salah's opener from the penalty spot, alongside goals from Darwin Nunez and substitute Diogo Jota.

Jarrod Bowen's header ahead of the half-time break left the game level, before Mac Allister's clever pass for Nunez's effort helped unlock the Hammers defence, giving Liverpool a vital lead ahead of Jota's late strike.

Read on below as the No.10 gave his post-match thoughts to Liverpoolfc.com…

Talking points: Reds maintain run, milestone West Ham win and Salah's record

AnalysisTalking points: Reds maintain run, milestone West Ham win and Salah's recordLiverpool secured a milestone victory over West Ham United at Anfield on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League with a 3-1 win.

On the result being a deserved win...

Yes, as you said, maybe the first half was a bit tough. They did really well. But the second half we were the dominant team, so really happy with the performance and of course the result.

On not quite grabbing the momentum after the opening goal...

We knew that they were going to play like this. They are a team that defend a lot and are very good in counter-attacks, so we scored the first goal but they got going. They are a very good side, a very tough team, but thank God we won it.

On his assist for Nunez...

It was a nice pass. I saw Mo and Darwin were going in behind, so I just had to play the ball and Darwin did the rest.

On whether Liverpool are seeing the best of Nunez...

Yeah, of course, I think he's getting better and better. I think we will see the best of him this year. He's a very nice guy, he's working very hard. I'm really pleased for him.

On playing alongside Dominik Szoboszlai...

I'm really happy. Dom is a fantastic player. As Endo and Ryan are as well - Curtis too. We have a lot of good players and I really enjoy playing with them. As I say, I'm really enjoying playing with them and I'm really happy to be here.

On returning strong results amid a busy recent run...

Of course. This is Liverpool. We will have to play games every three or four days, so we have to be ready for the next game and that's what we are going to do.
