Lennon made five changes to the side that lost to St Johnstone at the weekend and was rewarded with an improved performance and a 2-0 victory at St Mirren Park.

Paul McGowan blazed home from the penalty spot after three minutes and Graham Carey's impressive second goal extended their lead on the stroke of half-time.

Lennon said: "I was delighted with the performance, particularly in the first half. A few of the lads came in and did very well and that's what a squad is all about. Those lads have been patient.

"The timing of the two goals was perfect. The penalty set us on our way and some of the football we played was excellent and back to the identity of the stuff we played earlier in the season.

"If Graham's goal had been scored by Gareth Bale it would probably have been spoken about - goals like that deserve to be highlighted - it shows you the type of player and the quality we have."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
