Liverpool should start the season with a win but West Ham can find the net too, says Dave Tindall, as he previews Sunday's match between the two clubs.

The former Roma stopper had a brief tenure as the world's most expensive goalkeeper this summer after joining the Reds for £66 million, before Chelsea brought in Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga for £71 million days before the end of the window.

Liverpool have strengthened heavily with the likes of Keita.

However, that has not stopped Alisson wanting to prove his worth at Anfield, just like Mohamed Salah has done since making the same move before the start of last season.

"They think quickly [and] they have a very good understanding between themselves so my role is to support that, help in every way I can and hopefully provide them with some good service".

"We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago", said Klopp.

The buzz is good at West Ham too, compared to this time a year ago. People expect that we win, and we expect the same, but we know that between now and then there are 95 brutal minutes, and we have to be ready for that.
