Liverpool got their 2013-14 Premier League season off to a dramatic but successful start as they defeated Stoke City 1-0 thanks to a first-half goal from Daniel Sturridge.

The Reds dominated the Potters for the vast majority of the match and would likely have had a huge lead in hand were it not for some incredible saves made by Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

However, it would be Liverpool's new goalkeeper, Simon Mignolet, who would earn the biggest cheer on the day when he saved Jonathan Walters' penalty in the final minutes to give the Reds their first win of the season.

It was a frantically fast match, played with great intensity and emotion, and naturally it brought about plenty of key talking points. Read on to see some of the biggest lessons learned in Liverpool's streaky 1-0 win.
