(I am truly sorry for that pun in the subheader.)
So ok. Liverpool got through the first 30 minutes of an away game with a weird setup mostly unscathed. Right around the half-hour mark the Reds won a corner.
Philippe Coutinho took the corner and sent the ball sailing into the box. It found Emre Can— deputized as a central defender today— who rose to meet it and redirected it toward goal. The ball stayed just under the crossbar and hit the back of the net.
Gotta say, a much better start than I was anticipating!
