The season will be 'unbelievably hard', Klopp warns Liverpool after flying start

The Reds looked comfortable in what could have been a tricky tie against Pellegrini's West Ham who never really looked like threatening the debuting Alisson in the Liverpool goal.

Mane's second should have been disallowed for offside but that was the only complaint West Ham could have about the result, with Manuel Pellegrini's expensively-assembled side looking a long way from settled.

Mane was on the score sheet again as he gave the Reds a 3-0 lead just minutes after half-time when he pounced on a through-ball from Firmino but replays showed he was offside.

Substitute Daniel Sturridge made it four just seconds after coming on. "We know it is going to be a very hard season".

"Somebody told me we were the unluckiest team".

His passing was sharp and accurate and with Milner and Wijnaldum alongside him Keita had the freedom to control the game.

"It's only the middle of August and then in September the games will come".

The Spaniard will need time to make his mark on a moribund club and, while Arsenal couldn't be faulted for effort against City, there was precious little quality about their play.

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. Let me say it like this, previous year he already had a few problems with that but he could obviously play - and played really good.

Liverpool's marauding side will likely trouble far more experienced players than Rice this season.

I've looked into my own performance, the mistakes I made and I'll come back stronger and wiser in the next game. The all-rounder played a decisive role in England's narrow Test victory over India at Edgbaston last week.

Their best one followed a lucky bounce off the referee but Marko Arnautovic miscued his shot.

"They are a huge club, they have had many great players". Mane was the one who knocked in James Milner's pull-back.

The Hammers started their Premier League campaign in the worst possible fashion, falling to a 4-0 loss away to Liverpool on Sunday afternoon. After being 1-0 up, maybe we didn't have exactly the same dominance, we felt the intensity.

Sunday's other game was a goalless draw between Southampton and Europa League contestants Burnley. The midfielder was central to moving the ball forward for Liverpool and was heavily involved in their build up.

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. It rebounded to Robertson and his cross was sent over to the back post.

A misplaced header from Ben Mee beat Hart but Burnley defender Matt Lowton headed clear off the line.

"In the first half we needed less respect for City and then more aggressive pressing", he said.

"I said many times, of course our average level is high, but I have a feeling, still, that we can improve".

His opposite number McCarthy agreed. N'Golo Kante, Paul Pogba, Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard: it was only four weekends ago that all of these players participated in the final games in Russian Federation, but they're already back and doing what they do best. "Especially when I think that he has arrived less than a week ago, on Monday".
