Liverpool signing Aly Cissokho was impressed by their victory over Stoke City.

The 25-year-old knew he was Merseyside-bound before settling down to watch Saturday's game - and he insists the creativity on display as Brendan Rodgers' side clinched a hard-earned 1-0 win filled him with excitement.

"Valencia weren't playing until 11pm, so I had plenty of time during the afternoon to watch the game while still at home," Cissokho told Liverpoolfc.com.

"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."
