First game back at Anfield and the first 3 points of the season. On paper Liverpool are expected to win easily but against Palace on recent season it’s been anything but easy. Today we controlled majority of the play and Palace rarely threatened except for Christian Bentekes golden opportunity, which he usually takes, especially against Liverpool.

The positives

Andy Robertson was terrific today. Obviously we can’t get too ahead of ourselves after one game but he was very impressive and how good is his left foot? He can be a secret weapon for Liverpool this season and he attacks so well I expect him to chip in with a couple of goals.

Joel Matip bossed our defence today and he bullied any form of Palace attack and brought it to an immediate end. All he needs is a partner who he can rely on. VVD????

Sadio Mane again proves how good of a signing he has been for us. His pace is frightening and he can turn nothing into something and he can score goals just like he did today.

Clean sheets are so hard to come by these days and it’s nice to get one under our belt at home. Migs had a few long range efforts to parry away but will do his confidence the world of good after the shaky display last weekend at Watford.

Negatives

Don’t really like criticise the team but we lacked creativity at times today and Ofcourse we missing Coutinho and Lallana but if Coutinho is sold and Lallana out until Nov/Dec do we need to tip into the market and do we have time to find the right player with less than 2 weeks to go?
