Let me say it like this, past year he already had a few problems with that but he could obviously play - and played really good.

"We can not be anything different than the challenger because we have not won anything since I've been in (charge), a long time. They know that, we know that and we have to be ready week in week out for the different challenges". It was the 28-year-olds first touch just seconds after replacing the irresistible Salah.

The Draw - the Merseysiders had seven of those in their 19 matches - is [6.8] while West Ham are [14.5] to spring a surprise.

He said: "Very good start, for sure".

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.

Keita also appears for the first time in an official game for Liverpool since moving from RB Leipzig.

Who do you reckon is the best defender in the world?

Overall I would rate your transfer window as 8.5/10, with the only disappointment being not signing an extra attacking player (e.g Fekir).

You really are.' She's like, 'I do not know how you are still alive, " the famous daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley shared. I have a therapist and she was like, 'You're a miracle. "That they have given her a objective in life and it's helped her heal".

It featured everything we've come to expect from a stellar Liverpool display. What are your prospects for this season? The competition for places is going to be fierce this season with the arrival of Switzerland winger Xherdan Shaqiri or the possibility of incorporating another man in midfield and going with two up top - as they did for a spell against West Ham - rendering even the starting berths of their attacking triumvirate uncertain.

If Liverpool do achieve some form of success this season, it's already very clear that new midfielder Naby Keita will have a huge part to play in it. Many people have drawn comparisons with us and Everton last summer and it is important to avoid underachieving as much as they did. 'It is good that people are positive, but this season will be unbelievably hard.

"We played really well in the first half but they changed it round at halftime and pushed us in the second half".

Liverpool's other debutant, Alisson, was much less involved as the London side struggled to make chances. The likes of Mane, Salah, Firmino, if you leave space in-behind, they just cut right through you. It was Liverpool's biggest opening-day win since the 6-1 defeat of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in 1994. "We have to invest more, fight more", he added.

Of course, it is easier said than done though. That's no problem because when you feel something after about 30 or 25 minutes then you know it's not too long to go, but when you want to go the whole game... that's all different.

Liverpool now have a full eight days to recover until their second league game of the season against Crystal Palace on August 20.

And finally, what's your score prediction for Sunday?

'I'm really pleased but that's what we expected'.
