Shearer: “West Ham absolutely battered ’em”

ashearAlan Shearer described West Ham as “absolutely brilliant ” as they crushed Liverpool in perhaps their most compelte victory of the season.

The Match of the Day pundit had nothing but good to say about the team’s performance and added: “To be honest they absolutely battered Liverpool and should have had several more goals.

“You couldn’t fault them. It was an absolutely great performance all afternoon.”

And he pointed to the excellence of Andy Carroll in the air describing his goal as superb whilst making the comparison between him and Christian Benteke.

He said: Carroll gets right in there and does it whilst Benteke for some reason – and I don’t know why – hangs back and until he does it the way Carroll does he will struggle.”

Shearer also had high praise for Michail Antonio pointing out his non sop running and brilliant goal adding: “He didn’t stop all afternoon – a great performance.

“He was ready to run the length of the pitch and then ¬†get on to the end of things. West Ham were so dangerous.”

  1. Liverpool were suffering with the Carroll syndrome and couldn’t find a cure so they sold him.
    West Ham also suffered with the Carroll syndrome , but found the cure .. And what a remarkable cure it is . Carroll for me all day long . Let’s get this window shut and lock it .

  2. Someone tell me what I missed with the tackle on moron , all I saw was Antonio making contact with the ball and play acting from the Spaniard !
    Shearer and lesac see it as a foul ???
    But didn’t show the tackle by Lucas on noble , which under a proper ref would have given a red !!
    What did I miss ?? Was it or wasn’t it a foul ! Just for the record mind , I don’t give a tosska!
