Sterling, Sturridge Fire The Reds To Victory

Goals from Raheem Sterling and the returning Daniel Sturridge handed Liverpool a 2-0 win over West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

The first half proved to be a dull affair, as both sides struggled to create any openings for most of the first half.

The best chance of the half arrived in the 23rd minute, as Philippe Coutinho played a neat one-two with Sterling, before firing an effort straight at Adrian.

The home side managed to open the scoring in the 10 minutes after the halftime break, as Sterling latched on the end Coutinho's deflected before curling a low effort into the far corner.

Brendan Rodgers was keen to add more goals and introduced striker, Daniel Sturridge, who made a return from a lengthy injury lay-off.

And the manager's decision paid off, as Sturridge collected a pass from Countiho before firing a right effort into the far corner 12 minutes after coming on.

West Ham, meanwhile, were poor in the second half and failed to register a threatening effort on target.

The loss has seen Sam Allardyce's side claim only win in their last seven English Premier League encounters.
