West Ham 3 vs 1 Liverpool Visualisation that shows the smoothed positions of players around the time as indicated. The locations are identified with reference to actions as seen through the eyes of Opta.
- It is noticeable that Downing played in a central attacking position; directly on top of Gerrard

- As expected, the last half hour was almost total Liverpool possession; this can be seen through the very small size of the West Ham dots
