Liverpool’s new SAS partnership secures victory in opener v Southampton [Tweets]
In a hard-fought victory, the difference between Liverpool and Southampton was the partnership between Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling.
While it will undoubtedly be a tough task replacing the maverick Luis Suarez, Brendan Rodgers has two attacking players capable of combining to a match-winning effect.
A new SAS partnership is forming and both components seem to have boundless potential, continuing to improve with every passing season.
Shane Long’s late miss summarizes how important it is to have clinical players up front; he fudged up the opportunity to equalize and Liverpool were delighted to escape with a 2-1 win.

Sterling, he gets better every game. Allen did well coming on, should’ve started. Southampton were good, cut Phil out the game. — MrBoywunder (@MrBoywunder) August 17, 2014

Can’t remember who originally said that Raheem Sterling runs like he’s drying his nail varnish, but it’s a brilliantly accurate description

Expecting even bigger things this season from Sterling, who is my shout for Young Player of the Year. I reckon Ramsey will win senior award. — Wayne Veysey (@wayneveysey) August 17, 2014
Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge is a great core to build on

MOTM for today’s clash: Raheem Sterling. His partnership with Daniel Sturridge proves we never needed Luis Suarez at the first place #YNWA

Phew. Sturridge criminally underrated. Great save by Ming. Horrific gaps in front of our back four. Winning ugly #LFC
