Liverpool have been pretty abysmal so far against West Ham. Take nothing away from the Hammers, who have been very effective, but the Reds’ blunt attacking line has contributed heavily to the current 1-0 scoreline in favour of the Londoners.
Christian Benteke’s lack of movement, touch and just about everything you’d expect from a centre-forward has been alarming… and even more worrying is that Irons goalie Adrian has ‘out-skilled’ the Belgian!
A routine knock back was taken down brilliantly by the Spaniard, who then proceeded to juggle the ball with all the panache his main enemy has failed to exhibit!
Okay, he had plenty of time, but still it showed sublime confidence, and really put Liverpool’s lack of attacking threat into perspective.

Alas, there is 45 minutes to play and Benteke has netted twice in his last two games… so there’s a long way to go!
