Liverpool FC vs West Ham United || Saturday December 7th

Post by Don't call me James on 6/12/2013, 06:31

Another game in quick succession. Midweek we (Suarez) completely obliterated Norwich while West Ham lost to not-so-struggling now Crystal Pulis. So momentum is with us and we're also at home Thumbs up

West Ham are still missing former Liverpool legend Andy Carroll while their best player this season Ravel Morrison is suspended. Carlton Cole will probably start in the absence of Carroll. Nolan has been in terrible form this season and Diame looks a shadow of his last seasons self. Also Jaaskelainen has been one of the worst keepers in the PL this season. However looks like LFC greats, magnificent Joe Cole and resilient Stewie Downing will both be looking to show their former employers why it was a mistake getting rid of them.

Last season Jason Collins delivered arguably the greatest defensive performance against Loose Wires in the 0-0 match at Anfield.

This match is very winnable and god forbid any surprises we should do very well.

As far as the line up goes hoping for Aspas for Sterling and Lucas returning back to the line up.


Mignolet
Johnson - Sakho - Agger - Flanagan
Lucas
Hendo - Gerrard - Coutinho
Aspas - Suarez

Mignolet
Johnson Skrtel Sakho Agger
Lucas Henderson
Sterling ------------- Coutinho
Aspas Suarez

Gerrard's 34 now. No chance he can play 3 games in 1 week without it having a toll.
Flanagan has been solid, but we need height. Agger offers a lot more going forward as well.
The only chance West Ham will score against us are from set pieces. Sakho is a MUST in this game, and he can't play on the left.
Henderson has to play in the MIDDLE, preferably deeper and not as a number 10 to tame Diame, or we're in trouble.
Lucas should come back in after his rest.
Aspas to come in and try to take the pressure off Suarez.

4222. Suarez to inspire another Liverpool win.


Fun facts:
Suarez has scored more goals this season (13) than West Ham have as a team. (12)
10 of Suarez' 13 goals have come at Anfield.
West Ham haven't scored in 5 of their last 7 away PL games. (Liverpool haven't kept a clean sheet in their last 12.)
GJ has 3 goals in 4 games against his former club.
WHU haven't beat Liverpool at Anfield in the league since 1963; they've recorded 29 loses and 11 draws there.
Liverpool have hit the woodwork 10 times this season, the most in the league.

Lucas needs a time on the bench for me . . his performances have been disappointing lately! But the changes that need to be done have to be in the defense significantly!

I don't know what Johnson is going to do with Johnson! For me he is a nightmare!

Lucas needs to play. We looked average both in midfield and in defence with Allen playing as the controller.

Lucas definitely should come back into the team as he's had his rest. Sure agree that playing Gerrard 3 times in one week might take a toll on his body but these are the sort of games he plays well in. He's also very integral in our build ups in these sort of matches, I'm sure he'll play. And I much rather he's benched against Spurs or a big team where we'll need fresh legs to press, run, and cover.

We "should" be beating them without Gerrard though. Gerrard well rested is key to us getting any points against Chelsea, City and Spurs away and points in the long term. Even at 34, he can win us points as he can still be an X factor. He's been "poor" this season, yet he has 5 assists and 3 goals. We need to manage him well, and we haven't at all this season. He really should of came off at half time against Norwich. We were 3-0 up, it's not like we needed him after that...

Ahem.




Anyway, a very very winnable game, the only trouble I can foresee is us struggling to score if they manage to silence Suarez. In spite of the Hammers laying down in 17th place they have actually conceded less goals than us (15 v 17).

Migno
Johnson - Toure - Sakho - Cissokho
Sterling - Lucas - Henderson - Alberto
Coutinho

It's a bigger risk not playing Gerrard as opposed to playing him. I can't see Hendo, Allen or Lucas doing what Stevie does on the ball.

I seriously agree with this...play the midfield of Lucas, hendo and alberto against spurs. RUN RUN and RUN keep running all the day and then introduce Gerrard in last 30 minutes or so, win the match n come home happily with three points. I dont think BR will do that so at least let Gerrard take some rest now

I think Hendo should be given more responsibilty, he aint a kid anymore. I am sure he can do decent in midfield if given the responsibility

Ok it seems im the only one opposed to Lucas playing . . but would like to try it out once more! It was Allen's 1st full game back & thought he controlled ball position better!

No, I think we should Gerrard, Allen, Henderson. Gerrard has to start as it's a home game, but can and should be taken-off around 70-80 mins.

Anything less than a win here is a loss. Or a draw.

the stats is on our side this time. Westham have only managed one away win and three draws this season while we have only lost once and no draws.I dont expect us to start now.
though we have limited options infront i dont seem to be bothered, its the defence that scare me the most. they dont seem to remember what it means to have a clean sheet and this puts lot of pressure on the strikers knowing fully well they have to score more than a goal else....... i would like sakho in that defensive line up so he neutralise aerial threat and maybe pair him with skrtel then bring agger in when the points are secured......Must win.

That was a pretty good first-half. Some better chances would be nice, but they're sitting so deep it's hard to break that bus down. Just need to score a second to guarantee the points.
