Liverpool too strong for new-look Hammers

Liverpool too strong for new-look Hammers

Jürgen Klopp welcomed a "very good start" to the season for Liverpool after West Ham United were dispatched 4-0 at Anfield on the Premier League's opening weekend.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his players have to summon the spirit of Rocky Balboa if they are to close the gap to defending Premier League champions Manchester City.

It will be interesting to see where Xherdan Shaqiri fits into the Liverpool puzzle, as the attacking midfielder enjoyed an impressive pre-season. Now it is important to be very good again and to achieve that last thing.

The reds had dropped down the gears but always looked like they had the fourth goal in them.

The 72.5 million euro ($84 million) fee paid for Alisson was a world record for a 'keeper, but just a few weeks on seems reasonable compared to the 80 million euros Chelsea splashed out for the far more inexperienced Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao.

Entering the 2018/19 season Liverpool will be full of confidence despite losing out to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

"He's a player, as we know, who is maybe not a workaholic at the moment like Klopp would like", he said on Sky Sports, per the Daily Mail.




"It is hard to win every game, if we see how Wolves, Fulham or Everton act, they are all ambitious". 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.

Salah and Sadio Mane were able to join the club's pre-season tour in the United States are being knocked out in the group stages in Russian Federation with Egypt and Senegal, while Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Keita, Fabinho and James Milner had the summer off.

Both the wing forwards, Salah and Mane returned to Liverpool early for the pre-season fixtures after the World Cup campaigns with their national teams and both looked razor sharp and hungry to go again. "Let's go for it until we have no more air or oxygen, really go for it". "That's the expectations. Ours is the highest but we know that".

The former Manchester City manager said: "It was a tough game before the game, during the game and after the game". We can not be anything different than the challenge because we didn't win anything for a long time. Let me say it like this, previous year he already had a few problems with that but he could obviously play - and played really good. I think the expectations and the demands on him will be as it should be.

Manuel Pellegrini's men could feel aggrieved by the third goal, which should have been ruled offside, but they were also fortunate to exit Merseyside without a more ballooned scoreline.

However on the flip side, many of our new acquisitions are still unproven in the Premier League, so I think it would be a bit premature to say it has been an outstanding window.
