And We're Off: Sturridge Nets First Prem Goal Of 2013, Mignolet Comes Up Huge In Debut

((HT: BPL/Canal+))

Daniel Sturridge is the answer to your trivia question... as he opened the scoring of the 2013/14 Premier League season as Liverpool took on Stoke and their pesky defensive-minded soccer.

Iago Aspas found Sturridge on a pass across the outside of the box before Sturridge's shot went through the legs of Robert Huth and found the far post beating Asmir Begovic for the goal.

Liverpool's hearts were almost broken in the 88th minute at Anfield as Daniel Agger was called for a hand ball in the box. But Jonathan Walters penalty kick attempt was saved by Simon Mignolet- as was the follow- to preserve the shut out.

Here's the first of the firsts of this season in the 1-0 win...

And the HQ wonders if new Stoke manager Mark Hughes still thinks his squad stinks...
