Liverpool returned to the midfield diamond that brought success at the end of last season and with it returned the attacking and exciting football that became their trademark in 2013/14.

Tottenham 0-3 Liverpool
Premier League, Sunday 31st August 2014

Raheem Sterling shone in the attacking midfield role at the tip of the diamond midfield, while there were encouraging signs from Mario Balotelli and Daniel Sturridge as a partnership up front.

The Italian had a mixed game on his Liverpool debut, rusty with his finishing but working hard for the team and creating space for his partner. With defenders now having to worry about Balotelli, others around him——Sturridge, Sterling, Henderson——are afforded more space.

There were certainly some heart stopping moments with Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho in defence, but Liverpool’s two new full-backs, Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno certainly look impressed.

Here are the best of the reactions of fans via social media:

Praise for Mignolet from ‘DeathOrGlory’ in the forums:

Many things will be said in this thread, but i think one of the most telling moments in this game was that Mignolet save right before half time. That goes in and the game is completely different. Well done Simon!

‘Hope in your heart’ in the forums:

Looking back at the goals, they were brilliant, especially Moreno’s: the pace that lad has is simply astounding… he leaves Townsend (arguably one of the fastest players in the league) for dead there, before taking a perfect shot after such a bust-lunging run… absolutely breathtaking!
