Liverpool 4-0 West Ham United | Tactical Breakdown of Naby Keita's role

Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp

West Ham supporters have been extremely frustrated with the lack of investment since moving to the London Stadium and finally, our prayers seem to have been answered with approximately £100m being splashed out this summer.

'He can play different positions, obviously, but I think this is best for the moment.

"We are still Rocky Balboa and not Ivan Drago, we are the ones who have to do more and fight more, that must be our attitude".

"Liverpool have waited 28 years". It's good that the people can be positive but they know that this season will be unbelievably hard.

Two monumental errors by Loris Karius forced the club to bite the bullet and spend big for a top-class goalkeeper.

The Reds begin their season with a tricky tie against a Hammers side that were unbeaten during pre-season.

The game featured the debuts of Alisson Becker in goal, and Naby Keita in the midfield.

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.

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).

Indeed, the east Londoners have won just once at the Reds home in 56 years, and to boot had conceded four goals in each of their last three league encounters with Jurgen Klopp's men. What are your prospects for this season?

With clashes against Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester City to follow, this optimism could quickly turn into unwavering belief - the kind which translates into their players going into every game expecting to win and often snatching victory when they're up against it.

I think Liverpool take the points so the best bet is to back Mane to score in 90 minutes and the hosts to win at [2.95] on the Same Game Multi feature.

Liverpool, though, were comfortable without ever needing to hit top gear and certainly look like the title challengers most consider them to be.

With the new season beginning, you definitely won't want to miss the Sunday match of the week.

One Twitter user, AnfieldRd96, didn't hold back, saying "I'm in love with Naby Keïta". For that... the start was good. That is the world Liverpool is in today. And within minutes they were made to pay for their wastefulness as Mane fired home his second after Firmino had created the opening.

But this season, having spent around £170m on some deluxe fine-tuning to a squad who fell short in the Premier League but came agonisingly close in Europe, Klopp can perhaps no longer rely on this team being a work-in-progress upstart.

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

Of course, it is easier said than done though.

Jürgen Klopp was pleased with Liverpool's convincing start to the season, but has warned there will be much tougher tests ahead. Yes, it's a start - flawless as well because we won the game.
