Simon Mignolet was delighted with the penalty save and clean sheet that added up to a dream Liverpool debut as the Reds began their Barclays Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win against Stoke.
The hosts had dominated throughout but had only Daniel Sturridge's goal to show for their efforts when Daniel Agger handled former Reds midfielder Charlie Adam's free-kick three minutes from time.
Jonathan Walters fired low to Mignolet's right but the Belgium international reached that and substitute Kenwyne Jones' follow-up to get his Liverpool career off to the best possible start following a #9million move from Sunderland.
Mignolet told BT Sports 1: "You always pick the corner to go to and today I picked the right one.
"I kept a clean sheet which is the important thing. Today it worked, I am really pleased with it.
"We didn't manage to get a second goal but we deserved to win."
