Nathaniel Clyne was pretty much unplayable all day. I was suprised that Brendan Rodgers picked Lucas and Gerrard to play together. I was hoping to see a little bit of Can, today. I think he reads the game better than Lucas, but then, Can didn't have the best game against Dortmund, so maybe that could be a reason.
Henderson just keeps getting better and better, and I'm happy to say I was completely wrong about him, when I wrote him off in his first season at Liverpool. Skrtel, still switches off way too often, and I would imagine that a third way into the season we will be seeing a rear guard partnership of Lovren and Sakho. Both Lovren and Manquillo were fantastic.
Liverpool still showed their tendency to start sitting back and inviting pressure later into the game, and they really need to remove this element from their game. 3 points were scraped, but the team needs to do better.
Southampton did fantastically well considering they lost so much of their team. I'm glad about this, because even as a Liverpool fan, I am not happy with how we basically led the way in marauding that team. I hope they do well this season, because they are a fantastic team to watch.
