THREE things we learnt from Liverpool versus Southampton

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.

Glen Johnson isn’t popular with the Liverpool faithful

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.

Liverpool miss Luis Suarez

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’?

James Ward-Prowse has an exciting future in the game

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.
