West Ham United v Liverpool

Liverpool's grounds staff have apparently sparked a demand for the Premier League to review their regulations on half-time pitch maintenance, after the Reds' team only cleared snow away from one half of the pitch during their 1-1 draw with Leicester City last Wednesday.

"They have midweek with the Champions League".

Sergio Aguero hit an impressive hat-trick for the Citizens as they claimed a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at The Etihad on Sunday afternoon to move back to within just two points of Jurgen Klopp's Premier League leaders. West Ham, who had been the better side to that point, levelled through Michail Antonio within six minutes, with the kind of goal that title hopefuls simply shouldn't be conceding. However, that does mean James Milner has been drafted back into the side at right-back - and he responded by assisting Mane.

"I don't know. Defensively, I did not see a mistake from Hendo". Liverpool headed into the game with Adam Lallana making his first start of any kind since November and with two teenagers, Rafa Camacho and Curtis Jones, on the bench.


It looks like Liverpool are managing expectations to ease the pressure on Gomez. "Our target is to go as far as possible in all the competitions".

Thoughts on the actions of West Ham's ground staff?

However, once again they failed to win. The 26-year-old is chasing the 50-goal mark for Liverpool in the Premier League and now has 48 strikes against his name after 60 matches. Add to that, the injuries to Samir Nasri and Marko Arnautovic, which have stacked the odds against them even more.

The 21-year-old starred for England as they reached the Nations League Finals, having missed their run to the World Cup semi-finals following an ankle injury late last season.
