  • Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp

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. Liverpool were able to exploit West Ham's left side where there was a large gap between Wilshere and Antonio.

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.

LFC fans can not wait to get this campaign underway.

West Ham won't play a team like Liverpool each week.

Twelve months ago, there was a feeling that Slaven Bilic had a big task to try and turn around lost momentum and the season turned into a David Moyes fix job set to a backdrop of fan disgruntlement and in-fighting, West Ham finishing 13th.

But hey, it's the start of the season and this is the Premier League, anything can happen. It is a start - not ideal but really good.

Salah and Mane's pain at worldwide level was Liverpool's gain as early exits at the World Cup with Egypt and Senegal meant they could join the club's pre-season tour of the United States, unlike a host of Premier League stars who returned to training just last week after their exertions in Russian Federation.

West Ham should have reduced the arrears shortly after the break.

The former Manchester City manager said: "It was a tough game before the game, during the game and after the game".

Liverpool's English striker Daniel Sturridge (L) celebrates with teammates after scoring their fourth goal during the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and West Ham United at Anfield in Liverpool, north west England on August 12, 2018.

The Dutchman arrived at Anfield for a staggering £75 million fee in January, and has filled the defensive cracks in Jurgen Klopp's back line.

19' - GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 West Ham.

The Reds now have a team that can be genuine title contenders this season, and it would be far from a travesty if they failed to sign anyone else before tonight's deadline.

In pre-season, Liverpool have had to chop and change partners for Virgil Van Dijk in central defence due to injuries and Dejan Lovren coming back late from the World Cup so BTTS at [2.02] and over 3.5 goals at [2.22] both look decent plays.

Another of Liverpool's summer signings, Xherdan Shaqiri, is likely to start on the bench, with the Liverpool boss unlikely to tinker with the attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, who slayed defences for fun last season.

"Last season brought wonderful memories and great moments". They just blew West Ham away.

The Egypt worldwide scored 44 times in his maiden campaign, which ended in tears with his premature exit from the Champions League final because of a shoulder injury which contributed to the defeat to Real Madrid, but normal service was resumed within 19 minutes.

It was his goal since October, making it an impressive victory for Liverpool, who looks to dethrone Man City this season.
