Goals:
Sterling 23'
Clyne 56'
Sturridge 79'

Liverpool had a narrow one-goal lead thanks to Daniel Sturridge, despite looking toothless up front for long stretches thanks to a combination of excellent opposition defending and a couple of final-third miscues. Liverpool weren't allowed to take enough shots, and too many of those shots came from distance.

See the full fixture list here. The Premier League threatens to sue me if I actually publish the whole list on my blog.

On first glance, August and February are the cruellest months.

Unlike in 2013-14, Liverpool don't have the luxury of an "easy" start: they host Southampton, a team that's given them fits in the past, swiftly followed by trips to City and Tottenham.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has set the goal for his team during the 2014/15 season to be 48 points, a mid-table finish, and one fewer than where the club ended up last season.

When asked if Newcastle's target was to finish in the top half of the Premier League standings again this season, the 53-year-old manager told Sky Sports:

"Well, the average for this club over the last 10 years in the Premiership is 48 points, and I think if we get that or anything above that, I think it will be a good season for us.
