Jürgen Klopp: Liverpool can not be anything but the challenger

Liverpool news Jurgen Klopp

Keita, goalkeeper Alisson and substitute Xherdan Shaqiri made their first league appearances with Liverpool, while new West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini started five of their summer signings - including former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, who made his first league start in August in four years.

Klopp, meanwhile, reminded: "We are Liverpool; there is no one on this planet that expects more of us than we expect of ourselves", and on the walk to Anfield, fans fizzed as they discussed the possibilities the season could present - chiefly, the chance to erase Manchester City's designs on defending the title.

The breakthrough came soon enough, though, as Naby Keita's purposeful run sent the West Ham defenders in to a panic that allowed Andy Robertson to be free on the left.

Crucially, however, Liverpool looked nearly as comfortable in every aspect of the field, their midfield dominating with the energetic and aggressive Naby Keita impressing on his debut.

LFC fans can not wait to get this campaign underway.

The result continued West Ham's awful record at Anfield, which now extends to one win in 46 league games.

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

The change, which would require approval from Congress, would be a dramatic change in the organization of the Defense Department . Democratic Senator Brian Schatz, who is on the Defense Appropriations subcommittee, said the Space Force was a 'dumb idea'.

"Nobody knows excatly how valuable or worthy a pre-season is". It is a start - not ideal but really good.

Liverpool beat City three times last season, as well as reaching a Champions League final, and Neville feels they pose a threat both in playing style on the pitch, and the feeling around the club off the pitch. West Ham will be fuming with that, but it still stands. Manuel Pellegrini could not have asked for a more hard opening game as he took charge of the London side in his first game as their manager.

A victory for Klopp's men will be the club's 500th in the Premier League era, and the omens are in their favour having won their last three league meetings with West Ham - scoring four goals on each of those occasions.

The Dutchman arrived at Anfield for a staggering £75 million fee in January, and has filled the defensive cracks in Jurgen Klopp's back line. After that, a clear goal offside decided the game with the third goal.

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.

Just as importantly, unlike Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho who were lured away from Anfield to Barcelona in recent years, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino signed new contracts as a statement of intent of what is to come for Klopp's Liverpool. A once-great prospect whose last hurrah came in the late 1980s making a comeback against the latter-day heroes is a more accurate reflection of where Liverpool now sits.
