Over the past week, Darren Fletcher has been strongly linked with a move to West Ham. He was in London yesterday to complete his medical and sign the contract.

It has been confirmed today that the deal has fallen through though, with Louis van Gaal revealing that the London club changed their minds, and decided they only wanted him on loan, with the option to sign him permanently at the end of the season.

I guess the word for Fletcher is probably industrious, but to West Ham he'd be so much more than that.

Last season Big Sam's side struggled. Lacking a midfielder with the bollocks to demand the ball off the defence, it was hoofed high and long to strikers for whom the word "ungainly" probably implies a little too much elegance.

Liverpool 2-0 West Ham

Goals:
Sterling 51'
Sturridge 80'

What a difference a striker makes.

Liverpool played fairly well before Sturridge came on: controlling the tempo, dominating possession, limiting West Ham's chances. As they've done in most of their matches since switching to 3-4-2-1.
