Liverpool 4, West Ham 0: Mane grabs brace in big win

Jurgen Klopp

A report has emerged that claims Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had allegedly blocked a deadline day transfer that would've seen defender Ragnar Klavan move to Newcastle United.

Fans of the Hammers, and indeed of other clubs watching the opening round with intrigue, should be wary of overreacting to this result, as the scoreline is more of a reflection of how good Liverpool were rather than a perceived lack of quality from the visitors. A convincing dismantling of West Ham in their opening fixture was most crucial in its role of carrying forward that pre-season hype into the start of the campaign.

"We can not be anything other than "the challenger" because we didn't win anything since I don't know when - certainly since I am here".

He developed an instant understanding with Uruguayan superstar Luis Suarez and with fellow England global Raheem Sterling also breaking into the first team at the time, then manager Brendan Rodgers had one of the most potent attacking forces in the Premier League at his disposal.

The future looks bright for Liverpool as they bid to dethrone Manchester City as Premier League champions this year, but don't be surprised if Sturridge isn't a particularly big part of that challenge, or if he is even still at Anfield this time next year.

"The most important thing was the three points and we got them, so we're very pleased".

Cryptically, Pogba followed up with "There are things that I can not say otherwise I will get fined". For me, it was a dream come true.

Keita, goalkeeper Alisson and substitute Xherdan Shaqiri made their first league appearances with Liverpool, while new West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini started five of their summer signings - including former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, who made his first league start in August in four years.

"This season will be unbelievable hard".

Poor defending cost the London side a second goal just before the interval, to Sadio Mane, who added a third after 53 minutes from an offside position. He was heavily involved in his side's build-up play, leading the way for most passes (102) and key passes (3).

Former Chelsea and Everton winger Pat Nevin joined Joe Molloy and Kevin Kilbane as always on a Monday and he did not play down the impact Keita is likely to have on Liverpool. Another mid-table finish is probably the ceiling West Ham can expect this season, but a Europa League qualifying spot could be possible if they get on a hot start. "I think the best thing is for him to play 15-20 minutes when the opponents probably are exhausted".

Per the Liverpool Echo, it's been almost four years since Liverpool last lost a home game when they had to attack the Kop in the first half. In the first half we had two or three clear chances to make it 1-1 and we conceded the second goal in the last second of the period. Let us know in the comments section.
