Liverpool 4 West Ham 0: Salah and Mane see off Hammers

Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp

But having spent £170million this summer on midfielders Naby Keita and Fabinho, goalkeeper Alisson Becker and Xherdan Shaqiri, Liverpool are seen as the genuine rivals to City for the title.

Liverpool go into the season with enormous optimism on the back of being Champions League runners-up and enjoying a strong league campaign.

"West Ham will play, for sure, a good season but they are not the Uniteds, the Citys". He is a great addition along with the other new boys.

Liverpool vs West Ham United kicks off at 1.30pm (BST).

Last season Liverpool surprised many by reaching the Champions League final but Jürgen Klopp's clever recruitment shouldn't have been underestimated.

While Harry Kane is going through his slow start and United are lacking the finesse to confine the EPL's battle for supremacy to one city, Liverpool's triumvirate shows no signs of slowing down with another rampant display of attacking.

Liverpool: Alisson 7, Alexander-Arnold 7, Van Dijk 7, Gomez 7, Robertson 8, Keita 8, Milner 8, Wijnaldum 7, Mane 8, Salah 7, Firmino 7.

The country sits on the Ring of Fire , a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where most of the world's earthquakes occur. Nugroho said authorities had deployed three ships to evacuate people who were packed on the 16-square-kilometre beach.

West Ham's best chance came in the 49th minute as Felipe Anderson flicked the ball to Michail Antonio, who volleyed it over the bar. Subs: Snodgrass 6, Hernandez 5, Yarmolenko 5. However, Pellegrini is apparently very optimistic about the English global and sees him as an instrumental figure for his West Ham United revolution.

Right now, Egyptian football fans might be in need of a pick up after a summer that once looked so promising turned out to be highly forgettable. The Brazilian drives towards the byline and pulls it across for Salah who sees his close-range effort brilliantly kept out by Fabianski. During his time as Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp has been accused of not taking the cup competitions seriously, although, in that game against West Brom, he fielded a near full strength side and still lost.

The Hammers high-line approach worked wonders in the opening 10 minutes, but once Keita found a loophole, he combined with Andrew Robertson who crossed for Mohamed Salah to tap-in easily on 19 minutes. He had been on the pitch only seconds when he was on hand at the far post to score from a Liverpool corner.

West Ham should have reduced the arrears shortly after the break. "I play in an attacking position, it's what I get judged on (scoring goals) and that's all". West Ham will be fuming with that, but it still stands.

Managers like Jose Mourinho urged their players to come back to duty ahead of schedule, but ultimately that might turn out to be self-defeating, if those rapid returns harm their medium- to long-term fitness.

He delivered a typically excellent ball in to the box where none other than 2017-18 Premier League Golden Boot victor Mohamed Salah was waiting to slot home and open this season's account.
