Liverpool and City win opening Premier League games

Mohamed Salah continued from where he left off last season with another goal

No one seems to have told Liverpool that August is the time for working out the kinks in the Premier League, as Jurgen Klopp's men already looked to be in midseason form when they thrashed West Ham 4-0 in their season opener.

New signings Alisson and Keita impressed while goals from Mohamed Salah, Daniel Sturridge and a brace from Sadio Mane sealed a comfortable win.

"We knew before the game that our start was very hard". Naby is in because he's a really good footballer. Pellegrini knew he was in for a tough job when he took over the London club earlier this summer, but Sunday's match revealed just how much work needs to be done if his squad wants to get anything from this year. We can not be anything different than the challenger because we haven't won anything since I came in. Fabinho stayed on the substitutes' bench, having battled a minor injury and illness this past week.

Liverpool have had to wait a year to get Naby Keita after sealing the deal to bring him from RB Leipzig 12 months ago, but on the evidence of a storming display from the Guinean in yesterday's 4-0 thrashing of West Ham it'll be worth the wait.

Klopp spent heavily in the summer, bringing in four new faces to the tune of almost £180 million, and people people are backing the Reds to make a sustained push for the Premier League title this season. "After six weeks in I don't make the difference between a new player and another player because for me, it is exactly similar importance that Millie [James Milner] and Gini [Wijnaldum] are ready to make the next step in their development as well". He plays a similar style of play, and a similar position, to what he did at Leipzig.


"During the game, because I think that Liverpool deserved to win - they were better than us". So that's really good.

"Of course we are absolutely positive, we are not going to crush that optimism".

Lovren sat out the West Ham game and missed a large majority of Liverpool's preseason after being granted an extended break for helping Croatia reach the World Cup final.

"When you play against a team with such quality and the confidence of being champions, it's always going to be hard", Cech said. "I think you have to get that kind of competition in a team like Liverpool", added the Holland global. Chances at both ends continued to be wasted, leaving the game goalless at full time. "Mendy has a lot of things to improve and hopefully we can convince him to forget a little bit the social media and improve a few things".
