  • FT: Mark Clattenburg signals for full-time and Liverpool have got their campaign off to a winning start thanks to goals from Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge! 2-1!

  • Liverpool are holding firm and Southampton look suspect on the counter attack as they push men forward. A matter of seconds remain.

  • We're now into four minutes of added time with Liverpool hanging on!

  • CHANCE! Huge, huge chance for Southampton! Schneiderlin's strike rattles the bar from inside the area after a finger-tip save from Mignolet before Long nods the rebound wide from six yards out!

  • CHANCE! Pelle drills a low strike into the arms of Mignolet after Ward-Prowse cushioned the ball into his path.

  • Lloyd Isgrove replaces Steven Davis for Southampton.

  • Steven Davis was booked for Southampton just before that second Liverpool goal for his foul on Allen.

  • Delight for Brendan Rodgers on the touchline there. The original cross from Henderson was headed up into the air and Sterling met it to loop it back towards goal. Sturridge was waiting inside the six yard box and the slightest of touches was able to take it beyond Forster.

  • GOAL! Daniel Sturridge puts Liverpool back in front from close range after Sterling's header! 2-1!

  • Gerrard's curling free-kick misses everyone inside the box but bounces kindly into the hands of Forster. Liverpool are now pushing to retake the lead.

  • Lambert is involved almost immediately but is crowded out inside the area as he looks to get a shot away. Sturridge has a strike blocked before Allen draws a free-kick in a dangerous position for a cross.

  • Rickie Lambert is on for his Liverpool debut and he replaces Coutinho in an attack-minded change.

  • CHANCE! Allen shifts the ball across midfield to Henderson who shapes to shoot but he can only drag his shot wide from outside the box.

  • Southampton make their first change of the afternoon and it's a debut for Shane Long who replaces Tadic up front.

  • Manquillo's first-time cross from the right is a poor one as his deliver evades everyone inside the box.

  • The offside flag is raised but Forster still makes the save as Sturridge knocks the ball into the path of the onrushing Coutinho. The Anfield crowd is urging Liverpool on.

  • Liverpool are starting to see slightly more of the ball now and Mignolet is just signalling his defence to try and calm things down.

  • CHANCE! Liverpool are on the ropes and Clyne finds a way into the area again as he looks to get a shot away, only to be crowded out by Skrtel and Lovren as Liverpool scramble clear.

  • Morgan Schneiderlin goes into the book for a late challenge on Coutinho and Liverpool are awarded a free-kick.
