Pre Season Report
Bury - Home
The first 45 minutes ended at 0-0 yet that didn't tell any of the story. Gerrard himself hit the woodwork a couple of times and missed a few sitters too. Hopefully a better second half. 60mins, Sterling comes on for El Shaarawy and makes a instant impact and makes it 1-0 for the Reds. 10 minutes later another substitute scores as Joe Allen makes it 2-0. New man Nkoulou gets the MOTM.
Swansea - Home
Gerrard made up for the misses against Bury and put Martinez's men up 1-0 after 2 minutes. The next goal came from star stiker Luis Suarez after 53 minutes gone. Young substitute Coates rounded off a great win on the 85th minute, 3-0 Liverpool. Gerrard gets a well deserved MOTM after a 9.2 average rating.
A short pre-season as another fixture against Barcelona coming up in the Super Cup and Euro Cup fixtures will add to a grueling season. Martinez believes they need a big enough break as possible.
