Alisson, Keita handed first Liverpool starts

Alisson, Keita handed first Liverpool starts

This time, they have a Premier League victor at the helm in the classy Manuel Pellegrini and a squad improved by the signings of exciting Brazilian Felipe Anderson (club record buy), defender Issa Diop, goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, forward Andriy Yarmolenko and free signings Jack Wilshire and Ryan Fredericks.

New West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini admitted his team were outplayed, although he pointed out, with some justification, that Mane's second goal could have been ruled out for offside.

As a matter of fact, the most successful club in English Football, Liverpool have somehow failed to impress in the modern era as the Anfield club are yet to carve their name on the lucrative Premier League trophy.

Alisson was largely a spectator in-between the sticks on his competitive debut, with the Reds restricting the Hammers to a shot on target in each half. Naby Keita and Fabinho, it is hoped, will elevate Klopp's midfield to that of Manchester City.

The central defensive area is a bit of an issue for Klopp and Liverpool.

They have been tipped by many as being the most likely to push Manchester City the furthest in this season's Premier League title race and Liverpool got their season off to a ideal start with a 4-0 win at home to West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

Turkey warns it will ‘seek new allies’ after Trump doubles tariffs
The U.S. sanctions come after Turkey arrested an American pastor and put him on trial for espionage and terror-related charges. Turkey has already retaliated by making its commitment to its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership ambiguous.

Twelve months ago, there was a feeling that Slaven Bilic had a big task to try and turn around lost momentum and the season turned into a David Moyes fix job set to a backdrop of fan disgruntlement and in-fighting, West Ham finishing 13th.

Jurgen Klopp had spent his first day on the job on and every one of them since building up to this point of collective conviction.

Salah and Sadio Mane were able to join the club's pre-season tour in the United States are being knocked out in the group stages in Russian Federation with Egypt and Senegal, while Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Keita, Fabinho and James Milner had the summer off.

With the absence of Lovren, Klavan, and Alexander-Arnold, others are expected to get the unlikely opportunity. It rebounded to Robertson and his cross was sent over to the back post.

Jurgen Klopp has strengthened the Reds' squad during the summer transfer window, and will be looking to hand out a number of debuts this weekend. Mane twists and turns and picks out Firmino on the right of the box. That should be enough to prove that all the 2018 spending, which Mourinho taunted him about in the United States last month, was worth it. Those three, of course, will be the key again this term. An imperial armoury that creates air for the expectation to achieve great things this season. Roberto Firmino also has come back and featured in the pre-season friendly against Torino. The squad has a tremendous amount of depth now with the likes of Jordan Henderson, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Daniel Sturridge coming off the bench today.
