STERLING STARS AS LIVERPOOL DOWN BAYERN

Friends Of Liverpool

Young Liverpool winger, Raheem Sterling scored his debut goal for Liverpool after just 3 minutes at Anfield on Sunday.

Brendan Rodger’s new side have embraced the possession and attacking game readily.

John Joe Shelvey, in particular, has flourished under the new manager’s philosophy of pass and move with the ball.

It will be hard to leave him out of the starting line-up v West Brom on the 14th of August.

Redemption came for Lucas when he turned in a Stewart Downing free-kick on 30 minutes to add to Liverpool’s lead.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers made plenty of changes at half-time with Gerrard, Lucas, Suarez among others to be brought off.It was Andy Carroll who scored next when he fired a low-shot goalwards on 65 mins to extend Liverpool’s lead to 3-0.

However, Sami Huypia’s Leverkusen were determined to compete and they had the final say with a shot out of nothing by substitute Sam gave Leverkusen a consolation goal on 75 mins.

A good display by Rodger’s Reds, especially in the first half, where they ran Bayern ragged.

The second-half replacements showed that they have alot to do to be worthy of a place in the starting eleven for the coming Season.
