Review : Liverpool vs Fulham

Updated: December 23, 2012

Liverpool end their home campaign before Christmas on a high note as they registered a thumping 4-0 victory over Martin Jol’s side .

Liverpool :

It was the perfect gift for Enrique as he had just became father yesterday . The Home side put on a fabulous display to earn them the 3 points . As in every game Liverpool dominated proceedings in the early parts , but they were rewarded today as Skrtel struck a stunner which came of from a Stevie g corner . Then it was Liverpool’s show all the way . And with the 28 old winger Downing admitting last week that he might go in January , he displayed the best performance so far in a red shirt pulling of an wonderful assist to Gerrard’s stunner  and a sweet left foot finish in the second half to silence the critics . Sterling and Allen did not start the game which gave suso and shelvey starts in which they performed very well . The great Liverpool performance was sealed by Luis Suarez as he scored from an Jose Enrique pass in injury time .

Fulham :

An usual poor away performance from fulham . They made 3 changes to their defeat at QPR as Hugo Rodallega was benched which made clear intentions that fulham will sit back and attack liverpool in the counter . Dimitar berbatov was booed by some section of the kop but he never looked like giving up possesion neither he threatened the hosts . Fulham had only one meaningful shot an target which was scampered by pepe reina , other than that there was no meaningful attack by fulham. Brade Hangeland was very slow and could not handle the swifness of suarez , overall it was a poor away performace by fulham .

Final Thoughts :

Liverpool gave their fans a great christmas present with a grt performace and 3 points. With 4 goals scored and suarez scoring only one of them , they showed they are not an one man team .But they are inconsistent , and they have to get a series of results under their belt . Martin jol’s men will feel deflated seeing the scoreline , but they must hope better is yet to come when all the suspended and injured players return back .Just like the rain which poured from the Mersyside sky , Liverpool were pouring men forward and were scoring for fun to register a comprehensive win and move up the table to 8th spot 5 pts clear of the 3rd place .

Icon Analysis :

Man of the Match : Stewart Downing

Flop of the Match : Hugo Rodallega

Final Score – Liverpool 4 – Fulham 0  (Skrtel , Gerrard , Downing , Suarez )
