Mario Balotelli’s ‘anger’ message just hours before West Ham United v Liverpool

Mario Balotelli takes to social media just hours before Liverpool’s Premier League clash against West Ham United away from home.

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has sent a defiant message ahead of his side’s Premier League clash against West Ham United today.

The Reds will be looking to return to winning ways in the English top flight when they take on the Hammers at the Boleyn Ground this evening.

Brendan Rodgers’s side slipped up against Aston Villa at Anfield last weekend when they went down 1-0.

Although Liverpool bounced back with victory over Bulgarian champions Ludogorets Razgrad at home in the Champions League on Tuesday, they need an injury-time penalty from Steven Gerrard to pick up the points.

Liverpool’s performance against Ludogorets was not great either, and the Merseyside outfit will be keen on giving a better display against West Ham today.

Balotelli, who scored at Anfield on Tuesday, is likely to start today’s match and is looking forward to it. The Italy international posted the following photo on Instagram with the message: ‘This is the right anger we must show every game! Come on today!’
