Liverpool vs. West Ham United - Football Match Report

Alisson

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago", he said on the eve of the season, invoking the underdog spirit of the fictional American boxer.

"Every day we have the players on the Global Positioning System and we know the most amount of metres that he does before he has a rest".

Sadio Mane became the first Reds player to score in three consecutive opening Premier League fixtures since John Barnes between 1989-90 and 1991-92 with two goals while Daniel Sturridge converted his first touch after coming on as a late substitute. Many people thought Wolves would sell the Portuguese midfielder for a big profit this season.

"We know the expectations; we have expectations as well", said Klopp. That is already enough to feel completely different before a Premier League game.

"We can not be anything different than the challenger because we have not won anything since I've been in (charge), a long time. I'm pleased, absolutely, but that's what we expect".

Liverpool is next in action on Monday when they visit Crystal Palace - 2-0 winners over Fulham on the weekend - at Selhurst Park.

MOHAMED SALAH set about proving he is no one-season wonder with Liverpool's first goal as they cruised past West Ham.

He added that most capital for the deal would come from equity and it would not be "wise" to burden the company with added debt. Yasir Othman al-Rumayyan, managing director of the PIF, when contacted, referred Reuters to the corporate communications team.

"So result good, performance good, let's carry on".

Naby Keïta impressed on his Liverpool debut as Klopp fielded the £52.75m signing from Red Bull Leipzig on the left of a three-man midfield.

While Alisson and Keita start against West Ham, two additional new recruits - Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho - start the match on the bench. I have never been part of that myself, as a player or manager.

Still, Liverpool tracked him throughout his time in Austria, where he was named player of the year, and followed his progress as he moved on to Leipzig, Salzburg's sister club, in 2016.

"It's true that when you're born in the Black Forest and you have played in Germany's seventh division, it seems improbable".

"Naby had six weeks' pre-season with us". But after reaching the Champions League final in May and spending more than anyone else in the Premier League in the off-season, there is palpable belief that wait will come to an end in May. Keita had just completed his first week at the club, and walked past as we conducted our chat. I am by no means a fan of German football and had no real judgement on the Guinean worldwide, only what I had seen on YouTube, but having seen him during pre-season for the Reds, he certainly showed what he is capable of, and someone that we will benefit from with some fantastic performances since his arrival.
