  1. 90+3

    That's it, the whistle blows and Liverpool get the first three points of the Premier League season, thanks to Daniel Sturridge's first-half strike and Simon Mignolet's late penalty save from Walters. A cracking game to open up the Premier League season, Liverpool win it 1-0. Thanks for joining us.

  2. 90+3

    Kenwyne Jones flicks on towards Walters but Mignolet smothers it.

  3. 90+2

    Gerrard takes the sting out of the game by shielding the ball and winning another corner.

  4. 90+1

    Coutinho's long-range effort is deflected just wide for a corner.

  5. 90

    Handbags, handbags. Nzonzi and Coutinho tangle as tempers fray.

  6. 89

    Mignolet saved the rebound from Jones with his hip. Vital double save from the new stopper. Relief for Agger who handled clearly.

  7. 89

    MIGNOLET SAVES! Walters' penalty is stopped by Mignolet who makes a magnificent save.

  8. 88

    PENALTY TO STOKE! Agger handles, spot-kick Stoke.

  9. 88

    Free-kick to Stoke in another dangerous area. Sterling the culprit after a high foot.

  10. 87

    Henderson pokes a shot across the Stoke area but nobody in a red shirt is there to take advantage.

  11. 86

    Sterling breaks and has loads of space in the Stoke area. He picks out Coutinho who dinks a shot against the Stoke defence who clear.

  12. 85

    Gerrard's corner goes behind, for another corner. Agger wants a penalty but he's no chance there.

  13. 84

    Sturridge breaks and tries to play in Henderson who wins a corner for the home team.

  14. 83

    Liverpool clear the corner, if only for a Stoke throw deep in their own half. No long throw from Stoke today. Is it extinct now Pulis has gone?

  15. 82

    Charlie Adam tries a spectacular effort from the halfway line and Mignolet has to scurry back and palm it over. Corner.

  16. 81

    Kenwyne Jones comes on for Peter Crouch, who gets a good reception from both sets of fans.

  17. 81

    Sterling tries to play in Enrique who eventually gets the bal, but he blasts it well wide.

  18. 80

    Coutinho's corner is headed goalwards by Agger but Pieters blocks it. Toure can't poke in the rebound.

  19. 79

    Good effort from Gerrard from the free-kick and Begovic has to stretch to stop it from curling in the top corner.

  20. 79

    Huth fouls Sturridge and Liverpool have a free-kick 30-yards from goal.
