A new-look Liverpool side had to settle for a point in its opening match of the season after being held 1-1 at home by Sunderland on Saturday.

Luis Suarez blazed a fifth-minute penalty over the bar, but the Uruguayan forward made amends in the 12th when he nodded home a free kick sent over by Charlie Adam, one of four players making their debuts for Liverpool.

Another newcomer, Stewart Downing, cracked a shot against the crossbar and Andy Carroll had a strike ruled out as Liverpool dominated the first half.

However, the Reds paid for the missed chances when Ahmed El Mohamady floated over a cross from the right and Sebastian Larsson met it with an acrobatic volley on the Sunderland midfielder's debut just before the hour mark.
