Liverpool's unbeaten start to the 2013/14 season came to an end on Saturday after a lacklustre Reds' display saw Southampton run out 1-0 winners at Anfield.

Defender Dejan Lovren's second-half header was enough for the Saints to leave Merseyside with all three points and leave Liverpool fans cursing their side's lack of penetration in the final third.

Brendan Rodgers' men—as they have done so often this season—started well and almost took the lead through a Steven Gerrard free kick that goalkeeper Artur Boruc did well to turn over at full stretch.

There were claims for a penalty when Lovren sent Daniel Sturridge tumbling in the area but referee Neil Swarbrick waved play on.

Victor Moses—making his home debut—also went close to opening the scoring but the Reds failed to turn their early dominance into goals and, as has been the case in each of their previous four league games, fired a second-half blank.

Read on to to discover five things that became apparent during Saturday's encounter.
