The first game of the season against Stokealona seemed like it was destined to finish in a nill-all draw until one piece of magic by Coutinho five minutes before the end of the game which was the difference between the two sides in the end.

Benteke and Milner had a good game with both being quite effective and Benteke making a nuisance of himself.

All in all a good start to the season and long may it continue.
