Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling looked like he was denied a PK near the end of the first half against positional rival West Ham. That, along with the few chances from either team, was making this a deadlocked battle.
Then after 51 minutes, things changed and we have a leader. Sterling chested the ball down to Coutinho who passed it right back to Sterling as he used his short frame to slip behind the tall West Ham backline. After that, it was a clear path between him and the goal and it was 1-0 Liverpool.
