Liverpool v West Ham: Mane can get Reds up and running

Liverpool transfer news £35m Xherdan Shaqiri claim made by Sky Sports pundit

Liverpool defeated West Ham by 4-0 at Anfield in their season opener this afternoon, with Sadio Mane grabbing a brace as well as Mo Salah and Daniel Sturridge also getting on the scoresheet.

There are more hard things to accept in life [but] it's August and September and then we start playing three games in a week and then we don't have that problem any more pretty quickly.

Southampton legend Le Tissier revealed that he rates £71 million Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga highly, but he reckons Liverpool's £52 million midfield signing Naby Keita will have a massive impact at Anfield and will turn out to be the best piece of business done by a Premier League club. I shall break it down in the form of snippets below with the aid of animations to back my points.

Liverpool FC haven't won the Premier League title and their last top-flight success came in 1990.

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

Later today, we face West Ham who could give us problems as they will be looking for something to prove after a lacklustre season last time out.

Former Premier League winning manager Manuel Pellegrini has replaced David Moyes while a host of new names including former Arsenal stalwart Jack Wilshere, Polish shot-stopper Lukasz Fabianksi, Ukranian forward Andriy Yarmolenko and Brazilian Felipe Anderson joining the London side. They played better than us.

Liverpool vs. West Ham is being shown live on NBCSN in the United States, which is available to live stream with FuboTV.

"This is the year for me where Liverpool have got to come out and say "we are competing for the Premier League title". He was outstanding on and off the pitch - very positive for the team, for the club.

New signings Fabinho and Naby Keita were there from the start, Xherdan Shaqiri joined up with the team on their tour of the USA while goalkeeper Alisson has two friendlies under his belt to settle the nerves.

"In the end, it is serious but not that serious, so it's not that we need to be afraid that it will take him until whenever".

"It's more competition, which is exactly what you want". The manager said: "After six weeks in I don't see a difference between a new player and another player". We conceded the last goal in the last second of the period so you arrive to the dressing room with another task if you lose just 1-0. The left-back was caught out of possession for the first two goals; indeed, in a failed attempt to play offside, he was going in the wrong direction when Milner set up the second.

I think it'll be a 2-1 loss, which wouldn't be too disheartening, providing we follow it up with a win against Bournemouth next week.

It was the start Liverpool really needed to kick off a campaign that many fans will expect a trophy out of respectfully, because of the spending this transfer window.
