Watch: Suso v. Levante

Michael Steele

There wasn't anything worth revisiting from Liverpool's dire display in the loss to Southampton yesterday, but over in Spain Suso managed to get his first La Liga goal in Almeria's 2-2 draw with Levante.

I suppose nobody really enjoyed any Liverpool-related offerings yesterday, did they? There wasn't much to celebrate at Anfield other than a Mamadou Sakho slide tackle, a Simon Mignolet triple-save, Victor Moses being generally pretty good, and Luis Suarez not being banned anymore. So maybe it was awesome, right? No. No it wasn't. Yesterday was among the lowest of lows under Brendan Rodgers, and there needs to be a response quickly, in part at Manchester United midweek and most definitely away to Sunderland next weekend.

All was not lost in the world of Liverpool, however, as Suso continued to produce the goods in Almeria's 2-2 draw with Levante, getting his first goal since joining on a season-long loan and impressing yet again. He's now on a goal and two assists through their first five games in league; Almeria are yet to earn their first win but have wasted a number of leads, and yesterday after going up 2-0 on Suso's fantastic strike, a sending off let Levante back in the match, with former Liverpool winger Nabil El Zhar getting their first.

On the heels of yesterday it's tempting to lament Suso's absence, but his early successes in Spain are hopefully setting the foundation for a season full of growth and maturity, and it's Liverpool that will ultimately be reaping the benefits longer-term.
