Liverpool climbs into sixth place

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) Liverpool beat visiting West Ham 3-0 in Monday's only Premier League match to stay in contention for European qualification.

Goals from Yossi Benayoun and David Ngog plus an own goal from West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green at Anfield lifted Liverpool into sixth place over Aston Villa, which has played one fewer 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.
