Aly Cissokho: Joined Liverpool on season-long loan from Valencia

Liverpool picked up a 1-0 victory against Stoke ahead of their trip to Villa Park on Saturday.

And the 25-year-old managed to take time out of preparing for Valencia's game against Malaga to see his new team in action.

"Valencia weren't playing until 11pm, so I had plenty of time during the afternoon to watch the game while still at home," said Cissokho.

"I saw the whole game, I already knew I was going to sign for Liverpool so it was great that they won and played well.

"It was a very good start and the beginning of the season is always important. It was a very good performance against a Stoke side that defended well as a team.

"They played very well with a lot of passing the ball on the deck and the forward players showed a lot of skill and weren't scared to try things. It was an entertaining game to watch."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
