A game that promised so much but ended goalless courtesy of some wayward
finishing and two goalkeepers who were outstanding throughout.
It was a fairly uneventful homecoming for Brendan Rodgers who saw striker Kuis
Suarez shake hands with Ashley Williams prior to the game despite the Wales
defender’s astonishing outburst against the Uruguyan in his book.
Thereafter, Suarez was in the thick of the action as both sides went for broke
in a game of many chances but sadly, no goals.
The early exchanges belonged to Swansea
City with Pablo Hernandez and Michu posing one or two problems for a Liverpool
side who came into the game as one of the division’s under achievers this
That said it was Liverpool who had the first genuine opportunity. Suarez was
foiled by Chico Flores but when the ball broke to Raheem Sterling the
17-year-old scuffed his shot.
