Liverpool won their opening game of the new season, beating Southampton 2-1 at Anfield.

There was much to be said about Liverpool’s opener, having bought three players from Southampton this summer and contributing greatly to the exodus on the south coast.

But despite early predictions that Ronald Koeman’s side would be in the mix for relegation this season, the visitors gave Brendan Rodgers’ side a tough game, one they could have easily won had it not been for some poor finishing in front of Simon Mignolet’s goal.

In all, both teams will take positives from the game, with plenty still left to do before the transfer window closes.

So with that in mind, here’s five things we learned from Liverpool in their opening weekend win.
