One positive that can be taken from the game was the encouraging performance of youngster Raheem Sterling. The 17-year-old showed no signs of nerves and was full of confidence on the ball, taking on his full back and showing a good turn of pace.
Sterling may need to work on his final ball, but that will come with time. He’s certainly a great prospect and Brendan Rodgers must now decide whether to send him out on loan or give him some game time with Liverpool this season.
