Naby Keita starts for Liverpool in Premier League opener vs West Ham

Liverpool news Xherdan Shaqiri

I think with the supply line now including Keita, Mane and Salah will both score 25 goals each, maybe more!

Daniel Sturridge completed the scoring in the 88th minute, 24 seconds after coming on for Salah.

"It was better than I could have expected".

Despite the big-money signings of Keita and Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum started at Anfield against West Ham and the Netherlands midfielder welcomes the added depth. The future of football will be rotation. He brought in no fewer than eleven new signings - Jack Wilsehere and the £36m Felipe Anderson the most notable arrivals - and that, as with Liverpool, has whetted the fans' appetites for 2018/19. Everybody was happy about the job he did for us, " said Sadio Mane.

"We knew before we played that it was going to hard", Pellegrini admitted post-match.

"We need to improve in attack and continue working".

Jamie Redknapp - who worked as co-commentator for Sky during the game - even noted: "Naby Keita, he's been here 8 minutes but it looks like he's been here 8 years".

The response they got wasn't ideal, watching their side concede four goals against Liverpool for a fourth successive fixture as Claret and Blue debutants struggled across the pitch.

Their best one followed a lucky bounce off the referee but Marko Arnautovic miscued his shot. Mane was the one who knocked in James Milner's pull-back.

The result continued West Ham's awful record at Anfield, which now extends to one win in 46 league games.

Replicating the 44-goal haul which heralded Salah's debut season at Anfield has not fazed the Egyptian despite an early Champions League final exit and similarly fruitless travails with his national side as they mutedly exited the World Cup group stages.

Burnley were held to a goalless draw away against Southampton on Sunday with Joe Hart making several saves in his league debut.

Those in charge at West Ham aren't the most silent of club owners. "We're going to try to keep the same level and keep going".

Perhaps the biggest negative is having to wait over a week to see this Liverpool side again!

But a draw was a fair result, as Hart acknowledged. They know that, we know that and we have to be ready week in, week out for all the different challenges.

"We are very well prepared, we were looking forward to this game and I think everyone could see it".

His opposite number McCarthy agreed. "I wish him plenty of individual success this season, but not the title!"
