Liverpool earned a vital win at West Ham on Sunday afternoon, with their 4-0 victory giving their top-four chances a huge boost.
The Reds dealt with a pressurised situation very well at the London Stadium, and after a shaky start, they eased to a crucial win.
Arsenal‘s victory at Stoke City on Saturday had supporters terrified at the prospect of dropped points, but Jurgen Klopp‘s side delivered when it really mattered.
Sturridge, who hadn’t scored in the Premier League since the 2-2 draw at Sunderland on January 2, gave Liverpool the lead with a typically nerveless piece of finishing.
THAT celebration followed…..
It was so important that Liverpool got a second and didn’t allow West Ham back into the game, and Philippe Coutinho proved to be his side’s hero once again.
The Brazilian emphatically made it 2-0, just seconds after Gini Wijnaldum‘s shot had cannoned off the crossbar. There were joyous celebrations….
Coutinho had got his second of the afternoon by the time Divock Origi put the icing on the cake from close-range, capping a memorable afternoon in east London.
After some pretty poor form of late, this was somewhere close to the fluent Liverpool we saw earlier in the season – what a time to produce such a performance.
