Liverpool

Sturridge's scoring return accelerates Balotelli's quiet decline at Liverpool

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reacts to Daniel Sturridge's return in Liverpool's victory over West Ham.
Striker Daniel Sturridge enjoyed the perfect return from injury as he scored within 12 minutes of coming off the bench to give Liverpool's Champions League ambitions a timely boost.

There seemed to be a happy glow around Liverpool on Saturday. A win over a tough, in-form opponent in West Ham, who had a couple of former players just waiting to make them look silly; a goal from Raheem Sterling; and to cap it off, a fine strike from the returning Daniel Sturridge, whom they have missed for the better part of five months. No wonder Brendan Rodgers, and most other people at Anfield, were so delighted after the game.

There was one man who might not have been so pleased, of course....

Player Ratings: Daniel Sturridge marks Liverpool return by scoring

ESPN FC's Craig Burley reacts to Daniel Sturridge's return in Liverpool's victory over West Ham.

Daniel Sturridge returned from a lengthy injury layoff with a goal as Liverpool bounced back from their energy-sapping League Cup loss at Stamford Bridge in midweek with a comfortable 2-0 win over West Ham United at Anfield.

It was another impressive performance by Brendan Rodgers' men as they dominated for long periods and continued their recent defensive improvement with another clean sheet. Not only are Liverpool not conceding many goals of late, they're rarely even allowing opponents a shot on...

Liverpool target Mathew Ryan ready to progress to the next level

Mathew Ryan has experience playing at the World Cup for Australia and has been linked with a move to the Premier League with Liverpool.

Mathew Ryan has put in plenty of solid performances in helping Australia to reach the final of the Asian Cup. The goalkeeper, linked with Liverpool, has been ever-present and is likely to have a key role if Australia are to win the trophy on home soil.

Born in the Sydney suburb of Plumpton, New South Wales, Ryan began his training at the nearby club Blacktown City before joining the youth setup of the A-League side Central Coast Mariners. He was signed to a professional contract for the start of...

Danny Ings' rumoured move to Liverpool must not distract Burnley

Danny Ings' contract at Burnley expires in the summer and he has been linked with a switch to Liverpool this month.

Speculation regarding Danny Ings' future has been in the background all season, but widespread reports that Liverpool are preparing a bid for the striker takes it to a new level.

Ings has shown a remarkably mature ability to ignore all the paper talk and keep his focus on the pitch, but with a possible transfer suddenly a top news story it would be easy and understandable for him to be distracted ahead of a huge match at Sunderland on Saturday.

Liverpool need a reaction against West Ham after Chelsea disappointment

The panel discuss whether or not Balotelli's time at Liverpool is nearing an end after a bad start to the season.

West Ham's visits to Anfield rarely fill any Liverpool supporter with anything more than mild mirth and even sympathy at times. That, however, could be about to change on Saturday if Brendan Rodgers' men do not rediscover their winning touch quickly.

West Ham's record at Anfield is absolutely wretched -- the last time the visitors won there came in 1963 -- although during that time the east Londoners have dropped down from the top flight in England.

For one of England's finest clubs it's been a...

Liverpool, Mario Balotelli should part ways after yet more disappointment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes his side were better than Chelsea in both legs of the Capital One Cup and praises Thibault Courtois as the difference between the two sides.
ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes goes play-by-play to break down Chelsea's extra-time triumph over Liverpool on their way to the Capital One Cup final.

If they haven't already, then Liverpool need to make some calls over the next few days to see if there are any takers out there for Mario Balotelli. It hasn't worked out for the Italian at Anfield (and it's clearly not going to), but as long as he's still a part of the squad, the temptation to select him on the basis that "this might be his day" will always be there. That temptation needs to be removed, even if the only solution is to send him on loan somewhere.

Brendan Rodgers clearly does not...
