Over the weekend, we registered a 2-1 victory over Southampton. Naturally, this is a positive result, but many fans may have a few doubts about the performance.
The Southampton team we faced was not the same team as last season and had lost many players over the transfer window, but, with that said, they did play well and at the end of the day we managed to get all three points.
In addition to this, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling showed that they are ready to step up and fill the void left in our team by Luis Suarez’s departure. This, and a superb assist from Jordan Henderson for Sterling’s opener have provided us with some very encouraging signs for the season to come.
Most importantly, managing to cope with the pressure that was put on us after Southampton’s equalizer is a sign that we will not be losing unnecessary points this season when the going gets tough.
I think we have reason to get excited for the season to come thanks to our incredible mental strength.
