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."

f I were Manuel Pellegrini I would keep quiet and hope the Board didn't notice City not winning anything. If he isn't sacked I'd be astonished.
