A Liverpool on ‘full force’ in London. Lovren and Wijnaldum were missing, but in front stood with Salah, Firmino and Mané the big stars of the football team, just in the basis. The leader in the Premier League had better win from West Ham. Manchester City seems to be after a slight dip in december again under steam. The team of Kevin De Bruyne was after the victory against Arsenal to two points closer in the standings.
Liverpool knew what to do, but that was not immediately visible on the field. The first big chance of the party was ‘Chicharito’ who the ball after a good attack, but just next to the farthest pole, and pushed. The contest was two minutes old. West Ham was not going to go to the slaughter be led.
