Liverpool beat visiting West Ham 3-0 in Monday’s only English Premier League match to stay in contention for European qualification.Goals from Yossi Benayoun and David N’Gog plus an own-goal from West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green at Anfield lifted Liverpool into sixth place over Aston Villa, who have played one less match.The five-time European champions are unlikely to clinch a top-four spot and a place in next season’s Champions League, but can make sure of a spot in the second-tier Europa League by finishing fifth or sixth.Liverpool have 59 points from 35 matches, five behind fourth-placed Tottenham and three back from fifth-placed Manchester City, but having played a game more than both those teams.Villa have 58 points from 34 games.AP
