liverpool vs southampton
Liverpool won their first EPL encounter, it was a tough one but thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling who secured 3 points for reds.
Raheem Sterling got to a dream start when he latched one early in the match, when saints’ defence collapsed badly and debutant goal keeper Fraser Forster failed to stop it.
But after that Ronald Keoman’s men fully gripped the match and found an equalizer just after the half time whistle, when Nathaniel Clync scored an outstanding goal.
Southampton was all over Liverpool as they were looking as the favorite to take 3 points with them.
The second half was the same story as 1st one, Saints fully controlling the ball possession but it was Daniel Sturridge who saved Liverpool from started loser and disappointed start.
Liverpool started their EPL campaign successfully along with Gunners, Swansea City, Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspurs and Hull City.
