Liverpool have a striker crisis after a 2-0 home loss to Arsenal yesterday, whilst West Ham are looking upwards and onwards, despite striker Andy Carroll’s hamstring injury in their 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.
One club in crisis, the other blowing bubbles.
Despite Carroll’s hamstring injury [which could keep him out of action for 4-6 weeks], Liverpool may still recall the striker from his season long loan to West Ham after the club failed to bring in an adequate replacement on Transfer Deadline Day Friday night. Clint Dempsey went to Tottenham in the end, and other than Luis Suarez and Fabio Borini, Liverpool don’t have any recognized senior strikers in the squad.
I hear Michael Owen is available.
