Yesterdays 3-0 win over West Ham at Upton Park was easy! Going into the game, I was a bit worried as I know West Ham have been playing some pretty good football this season. In seasons gone by we would have struggled in this fixture but we have come forward in leaps and bounds this season and we handled this game with ease. I guess it was all made easier due to the early goal we scored after 90 seconds. Yet again the Torres and Gerrard combination was at work. If only these two had played more games together for us this season, we may have wrapped up the title by now! But we can not live with “if only”!
At 1-0 up we were in charge then when it was 2-0 before half time we had already wrapped up the game. There was no doubt about the penalty we won. It was bit disappointing to see Stevie miss the spot kick but credit to him for the follow up.
In the second half it looked like we were disinterested in the game We were playing at such a relaxed pace. It looked like a typical end of season game of two teams playing who have nothing to fight for but we are still fighting for the league. It is up to Manchester City to do us a favour today and beat United.
Babel made it three in the end with what I think could be his last ever goal for Liverpool as I see him moving on in the summer.
I am glad we are still alive in the title race. I can not remember the last time we still had a chance of winning the league with 2 games to go! By now we would have been long out of the race and fighting to finish in the top four. No matter how the season end, we have progressed from last season. The experience has been great but we have to make sure we build on this for next season so we can go one better and get #19. Don’t get me wrong, we could still do it this season. We just have to walk on with hope in our heart!
