Daniel Sturridge ensured Liverpool began the post-Luis Suarez era in victorious fashion, scoring a late goal to seal a 2-1 win over Southampton in their first match of the Premier League season on Sunday. Much will be expected of Sturridge this season after the summer departure of his strike partner and the England international showed his poacher’s instinct with a close-range finish in the 79th minute at Anfield. That salvaged three points from an unconvincing start to the new campaign for last season’s runner-up, which took the lead through Raheem Sterling in the 23rd but lacked urgency for much of the game without the effervescent Suarez.
