Guidolin's position has come into question in recent weeks, but the Italian insists he's not thinking about where he'll be at the end of the season.

I said before, now is not the time to say other things. I am happy because of this experience for me in the Premier League. When I arrived the situation was difficult and now we have 43 points and this is an important experience for me and my career, so thank you to my players. I hope I can stay (in the Premier League), now I only think about this match, tomorrow is another day.

Two goals from Ghanian forward Andre Ayew and a curling Jack Cork effort was enough for Francesco Guidolin's men, with Christan Benteke's header a mere consolation for the away side.

Liverpool also had young full-back Brad Smith sent off late on for two bookable offences.

On Tuesday, an inquest concluded that the 96 Liverpool fans who were killed as a result of a crush at the Hillsborough football ground in April 1989, including two from Wales, died unlawfully.

It marked the end of a 27 year campaign from families of the victims to seek justice, as it was determined that the behaviour of the Liverpool fans on that day was not to blame.
