West Ham United U18 coach Steve Potts was delighted with their 5-0 thrashing of Liverpool.

The Hammers were on fire throughout the first half heading into the break 3-0 up thanks to a brilliant free-kick from Kieran Bywater and further goals from Jordan Brown and Reece Burke.

West Ham found their ruthless touch to go further ahead through Brown and Bywater's second goals to end the game as clear and deserved winners.

"Well it wasn't far off being the perfect performance and result," Potts told whufc.com. "To go and get a result like that against Liverpool, I don't think you can really ask for much more.

"During the week, we said to the boys that recently they haven't ended up getting the results they deserved based on their performances, but on Saturday they did exactly what we were looking for.

"They have all been training really well and showed it by how ruthless they were."
