What's trending in world football: Liverpool ticket protest, Lavezzi to China

Paul Mariner thinks the fan protest against Anfield ticket prices may have influenced Liverpool's late collapse against Sunderland.

Here are the top stories from Monday:

LIVERPOOL: Jurgen Klopp (or one of his assistants given Klopp had his appendix removed on Saturday) will speak at 2 p.m. to preview Tuesday's FA Cup replay at West Ham but all the talk is about the ticket protest walkout in Saturday's match. Are Liverpool's owners going to review their decision?

- Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson refused to use the mass walk-out as an excuse for their late capitulation at home to Sunderland.

Dimitri Payet, Andy Carroll can't unlock solid Southampton defence

Maya Yoshida's goal was the difference, as Southampton defeated West Ham after being reduced to 10 men.

West Ham suffered a disappointing defeat against Southampton at St Mary's on Saturday, going down 1-0 in a match they dominated for long periods.

After a bright start that ended with Maya Yoshida putting the Saints ahead after nine minutes, the home side had to watch Slaven Bilic's men take a grip on the game.

The Hammers chances of getting something from the match received a massive boost when Victor Wanyama received a straight red for a needless lunge at Dimitri Payet with over 30 minutes still...

Emmanuel Emenike has the talent for his latest challenge at West Ham

Emmanuel Emenike has taken a circuitous route to the Premier League but he could make an impact at West Ham.

Emmanuel Emenike's winter move to West Ham is one that came out of left field, at least, for Nigerian football fans. But the 28-year-old striker's 2016 appears to be taking a cue from his 2015, which proved to be a year of surprises.

Pushed out of Fenerbahce given a loss of form and dwindling goal return, the forward surprised his countrymen by heading off to the Gulf club Al-Ain on loan for what appeared to be a big payday. It was not the move many expected, given his status as an elder statesman...

Dimitri Payet gaining cult status under Slaven Bilic at West Ham

Slaven Bilic was full of praise for his West Ham side after they beat Aston Villa 2-0.

Manchester City may have Kevin de Bruyne and Arsenal are feeling the benefit of Petr Cech, but in east London, officials and fans believe their club made the deal of the 2015 summer transfer window for what now looks a bargain £10.7 million from Marseille.

After five months in London, Dimitri Payet has achieved cult-hero status. In the final season at Upton Park, West Ham have the ideal man to help sign off 112 years of tradition at the ground. Paolo Di Canio, Trevor Brooking, Bobby Moore,...

West Ham maintain their good form ahead of a visit to Southampton

An early red card shown to Aston Villa's Jordan Ayew opened the door for two, second-half goals from West Ham.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic praises his squad's drive and determination in their 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.
Aston Villa manager Remi Garde refuses to discuss Jordan Ayew's sending off but praises his side's 10-man effort.

West Ham consolidated sixth place in the Premier League table with a comprehensive win over Aston Villa at Upton Park on Tuesday.

The Hammers' 2-0 victory was made easier by Jordan Ayew's 17th minute red card for elbowing Aaron Cresswell. Villa had looked as if they may have made a game of it before the bizarre dismissal, but Ayew's inexplicable action completely deflated Remi Garde's men.
