We review Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday with ‘five things we learned’.
The match was Jurgen Klopp’s first home Premier League game as Liverpool manager.
The Klopp Era hasn’t started as well as planned with two draws to Tottenham Hotspur and Rubin Kazan in the Premier League and Europa League respectively.
However, there is still a positive atmosphere around Anfield due to the new manager coming in for Brendan Rodgers, but once again, the Reds fans had to settle with just a point.
Christian Benteke’s opener was cancelled out by Sadio Mane, who later got sent-off for two bookable offences.
So after the 1-1 draw at Anfield, here are the Five Things SillySeason learnt from the match.
1. Benteke returns to usual business
The Liverpool forward scored a brilliant headed goal, leaping with superb agility above centre-half Jose Fonte to nod the ball out of Martin Stekelenburg’s reach. The Belgian certainly provided more of a dangerous attacking force than his compatriot Divock Origi in the first-half.
With Danny Ings out until at least April, and Daniel Sturridge once again watching from the sidelines, Klopp will be hoping that Benteke can serve the goals his side need to climb the Premier League table.
