Liverpool’s 3-0 home defeat to West Ham last weekend had everyone scratching their heads, not least the happy Hammers themselves.
Slaven Bilic’s men hadn’t won at Anfield for over 50 years and after losing to both Leicester and Bournemouth before their visit to Brendan Rodgers’ side, everyone expected them to get absolutely nothing on merseyside again this year.
But the Hammers surprised everyone with a well deserved victory to leave Rodgers red faced on his own turf. That led to former Chelsea star Ruud Gullit claiming Liverpool need a bigger ground in order to be successful. Really? Is that all it takes to become a successful? We’ll soon found it West Ham.
Meanwhile, David De Gea’s dream move back home to Madrid fell through after a shambolic episode between Manchester United and Real Madrid right at the very death of Spain’s transfer window deadline. The deal involved Real stopper Keylor Navas going the other way, which also fell through, and as a result we’ve got two unhappy goalkeepers in the middle of two angry clubs.
Richard Keys (remember him) has piped up, though, by claiming the deals will still happen in January. Does he know something we don’t? We’ll soon find out, I suppose.
And finally, Alex Song returned to West Ham on a season long loan from Barcelona on deadline day and the good guys over at Opta have revealed a stat that suggests the Hammers have completed a very shrewd bit of business.
