Liverpool emerged as the victors from the first Super Sunday game but they were made to work for the three points as Southampton showed there is life after Rickie Lambert & co.
Following on from his rather poor showings as England’s right back at the World Cup, Johnson showed he hasn’t left those kind of performances in Brazil. At half-time of today’s game, Liverpool fans took to social media to voice their disapproval at the former West Ham player’s performance – I think the several wayward shots finally sent them over the edge.

Glen Johnson is the worst #JustSayin

30 minutes into this Season, and I already want Glen Johnson out of this club, and out of my life.

Well, this one is kind of obvious; I mean, you’re always going to feel the loss of one of the world’s best strikers. Without the new Barcelona man, Liverpool lacked bite (hehe), impetus and, the most worrying thing for the Kop, will be just how anonymous and uninspiring Daniel Sturridge was – did he even touch the ball for his ‘goal’?

It seems Liverpool need a striker, that Luis Suarez would be a good signing, great striker!

Southampton fans must hate it when one of their players gets noticed because it more than likely means he’ll be off to Anfield in the next transfer window. However, the England U21 midfielder will no doubt have caught the attention of all of the big boys, as he stepped into the role that Adam Lallana vacated.

James Ward-Prowse is the future

Ward-Prowse getting a lot of space. He's been instrumental for Southampton today. Really threatening.

How long until someone shows serious interest in James Ward-Prowse? Best player on the pitch today.
