Liverpool's players and the manager have been giving their reaction to Liverpool's winning start to the season.
Debutant goalkeeper Simon Mignolet saved a penalty in the 88th minute to ensure Liverpool kept hold of all three points and he was still on a high shortly following the final whistle.
"You dream of those kinds of things and when it actually comes around, you're very pleased afterwards.
"You can't really judge if it's going to end up like that on your debut. It can only be good for my confidence; the next game is going to be a lot easier than it was today.
"We just have to keep our feet on the ground and be focused. Next week there's a tough game again against Aston Villa.
"The most important thing is that we got three points today; I think we deserved that with the game we played and the chances we created.
"Unfortunately, we didn't manage to score the second goal. That's the most important thing - a win, a clean sheet and move onto the next game."
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers was pleased with LFC's start to the season, giving special credit to Mignolet.
"He made three terrific saves in the game. He had one in the first half when Jonathan Walters had a great turn and shot and Simon stretched and got a strong arm to the corner on the left side.
"Obviously when you don't take your chances - and we created numerous chances and didn't do that - and then get a penalty against you at the end, there's sometimes that sinking feeling.
"But he'd done his homework and knows exactly where all the penalty takers are going. It was a good first save and then obviously the reaction to get up and make the second save was impressive.
"I think from that, you also saw the spirit in the team, what we're trying to cultivate here as well and the energy and attitude of the players.
"It was terrific performance all round - but of course, the goalkeeper gets the plaudits when he saves a penalty right at the end."
Meanwhile, some players took to social networks to give their verdicts on the opening game:
Felt great to be back today. 3 points to start the season #HappyDayz
