Cracking image this.

Even when he’s not amongst the goals, Mario Balotelli always seems to find himself in the thick of the action and it’s been no different at Upton Park this evening.

Having been involved in an altercation with West Ham ‘keeper Adrian earlier in the half, Balotelli teed up Raheem Sterling to pull a goal back for the visitors just before the break and just after laying the ball off, he had to jump pretty high to make sure he avoided contact with Sterling’s rasping effort.

Great athleticism from Balotelli and the goal itself wasn’t half bad either…
