Joe Cole: Is mobbed by Jonjo Shelvey after scoring against West Ham

Joe Cole: Is mobbed by Jonjo Shelvey after scoring against West Ham

Liverpool's win over West Ham on Sunday leaves them now find themselves just four points off the Champions League places in the table after a slow start to the season.

Cole reckons the team are developing well and reserved special praise for 18-year-old winger Raheem Sterling.

"I really do think this team is making good progress," said Cole. "The players are getting better and better and really responding to the things the manager wants us to do.

"It's great to play alongside the young lads with the talent and enthusiasm they have got."

"It was a great pass from Raheem for my goal. That's what he's capable of, he is a real livewire and is always a threat. He never stops running and working hard for the team and never looks tired, and for an 18-year-old kid that's unbelievable.

"He is going to be a top player and he is at the right club to do that."

Cole scored Liverpool's equaliser against old club West Ham and the 31-year-old was delighted to get on the scoresheet.

"It was a good feeling to score again and an even better one to win for our fantastic supporters," added Cole.

"When I came off the pitch after scoring against Young Boys, considering I haven't done much for Liverpool, the reception I got from the fans was amazing and it meant a lot to me.

"The fans can see I want to do well for this club and it was great to score a goal for them and get the three points."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
