Liverpool are in a precarious position.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin fired Everton to victory over West Ham this weekend and did Liverpool a big favour in the process.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin fires Everton past West Ham
This weekend saw David Moyes’ high flying Irons welcome the Ev to East London.
The Scottish manager faced off against his former club with the Hammers still in the hunt for a top four finish of their own.
The club’s lofty ambitions were dealt a severe blow as Dominic Calvert-Lewin fired Everton to victory over West Ham.
The 24-year-old, signed for £1.5m as a teenager, made a straightforward run past Craig Dawson and was found with an inch perfect pass from Ben Godfrey.
The striker then finished astutely past Lukasz Fabianski in goal.
The finish did Liverpool a big favour as the Reds can no leapfrog West Ham into fifth place if we win our game in hand.
