Liverpool 4 Vs West Bromwich Albion 1

 

So the week that saw the purpled nosed drunk tell everyone that Steven Gerrard, is not a top, top player. Jordan Henderson has an odd posture and Liverpool are eight players away from challenging for the Premier League title. Yes its early days in the season, but things are looking a lot rosier this end of the East Lancs Road.

When Luis Suárez plays like this, the Reds look like a team capable of winning trophies. Suárez performance today was pure genius, his first Anfield hat-trick executed magnificently.

When Luis was substituted with a few minutes left, the Kop roared there approval of the magician. Suárez could not stop smiling, he saluted the Kop. He saluted the Centenary Stand. He saluted the Main Stand and, finally the Anfield Road. Every Liverpool supporter was on their feet.

Listening to the post-match interviews in the Soli after the game, Rodgers was keen to eulogise about the contributions of others, especially Gerrard and Henderson. While Luis’s presence was most important in terms of scoreline, Henderson again showed that he is growing into player the club hoped he would be, he ran, ran and ran – his posture not appearing to be inhibiting him just yet, Gerrard, positioned in an advanced midfield position, was as significant.

Whenever there have been doubters - about the team or himself - Gerrard has produced something that makes you gasp with awe. His contributions are tangible – the reaction of the crowd, audible and are louder than any drunken ex managers bile.

Suárez was unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty after a drag inside the box but the ref didn’t have time to blow the whistle before he had scored the Reds opener. Receiving possession 30 yards away from goal and surrounded by three West Brom players, a nutmeg on Olsson and a right-footed drive into the bottom corner, and the Reds were off and running.

Suárez’s second goal, was scored shortly after. Again, the odds were against the striker as he met Aly Cissokho’s deflected cross on the edge of the 18-yard box.

Suárez seems to be a man on a mission making up for lost time, just as you think the chance to score from certain balls or angles are impossible the Uruguayan finds away. This time with a header which was more of a head-butt, bulleted the ball past the West Brom stopper.

Luis and Daniel Sturridge dubbed the new SAS both see chances hit the bar. West Brom pulled a goal back from what seemed like a soft penalty from my position, I felt it was a fair challenge by Lucas, but minutes later James Morrison smashed home the spot kick.

But the best was yet to come as if placing a cherry on the top of this particular cake Sturridge from twenty-five yards out, spotted the West Brom keeper a couple of yards off his line and floated the most beautiful lob over the stopper, it was a piece of art in its self, taking Sturridge to his 14th goal in 14 games.

And to the white noise coming from the other end of the East Lancs, those who laugh last…
