Friends Of Liverpool

Two goals from captain Steven Gerrard and a late strike from sub Ryan Babel gave Liverpool all three points against West Ham this evening.
The Reds got off to the perfect start when Fernando Torres slid a perfect ball to Gerrard to score after two minutes.
Thereafter, Liverpool strolled through the game , keeping possession well as the Hammers struggled to get into the game.
When Louis Boa-Morte pulled back Torres in the box Gerrard stepped up to take the penalty, it was saved well by Robert Green, but the ball fell kindly for the captain to turn the ball home for a two-nil lead at half-time.
The second-half was comfortable for the Reds as they contained any threat West Ham could throw at them until Jamie Carragher miss-kicked a ball which Di Michele ran onto and with only Pepe Reina to beat, he fell over and the chance went a begging.
Ryan Babel came on for a subdued Fernando Torres and he put the game to bed late on when he drove home the ball from his saved header by Green.
So Liverpool go back on top off the table tonight, level on points with the hated Man Utd, who play Manchester City tomorrow.
Lets hope City do us a favour in that game, come on the real Reds!
