LIVERPOOL 2-0 CRYSTAL PALACE | STERLING, STURRIDGE
It's been a tremendous start for Liverpool in this seasons Premier League. They have started the season with a bang and have really expressed their desire to win. Whilst one or two of the three games weren't as convincing as you'd like, they still managed to drag out three wins in three, even at times when it looked like it wouldn't be there day. Something this team haven't done for years.
Their first game of the season came against Swansea, away from home. An interesting team whenever it came to Liverpool. One game they'd completely tear the Swans apart and the next they wouldn't be able to handle them, but they managed to get their own way this time. Adam Lallana, the leading scorer in pre-season gave Liverpool the first half lead upon 39 minutes and it took until the 73rd for them to get the cushion the red fans had been eagerly anticipating after real dominance all game, Coutinho the scorer. It didn't take long though for Swansea to reduce the deficit, only a minute later they struck back with a goal to get themselves back in it, but the second goal just wouldn't come for them.
The second game of the season came to Stoke at home. Another team that's always been a bit of a bogey side for Liverpool, and one they always seem to be playing near the start of the season. Regardless of this, the players put records and stats to one side here, and showed the Potters who's boss. Daniel Sturridge scored Liverpool's first goal of the game in the 25th, and Liverpool seemed to be at their very best.
Stoke did at one point manage to grasp a firm hold on the game though, and came close to equalizing a few times, but Liverpool responded well, and with the fans in full voice Glenn Johnson put the ball in the back of the net from the spot, after a penalty kick was given for a foul on the right back.
The last game would be expected to be the easiest of the three Liverpool took part in this month, but it was far from it. Selhurst brought a different challenge for Liverpool, and despite scoring through Sturridge in the 19th minute, it was a game that the lads just couldn't find their mojo in. Whilst they got their fair share of chances, Crystal Palace to had their opportunities to strike a blow to Liverpool's fine start, but luckily for the reds, Reina was in top form, and the Palace strikers couldn't hit a barn door.
Raheem Sterling scored a late second for Liverpool, which helped to see out the win. That would make it three in three for the reds and they were looking sharp. With Aston Villa, Spurs, Southampton (COC) and Manchester United all to come next month along with a Champions League group game which is yet to be drawn, Liverpool will have to be at their very best to get as many points from this tough challenge that lies ahead, can Brendan Rodgers' team find a way to break down their challengers?
