Liverpool 4, West Ham 0: Mane grabs brace in big win

Sadio Mane Serves A Reminder Of VAR's Use After Blatant Offside Goal

Liverpool beat City in three of their four meetings last season, but the key to a title challenge will be a consistency Klopp has so far failed to nail in almost three years in charge.

Soon after debutant Riyad Mahrez was substituted in the second half, having earlier forced Petr Cech into a good save, Bernardo Silva added the second goal in the 65th minute from an assist by Benjamin Mendy.

Without captain Jordan Henderson and new signing Fabinho in midfield from the start, the trio of James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and Naby Keita controlled the centre of the pitch, dictated the tempo of the play and were adept at holding possession when needed, but were also spraying balls into the front men where possible. He was heavily involved in his side's build-up play, leading the way for most passes (102) and key passes (3).

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren will be out of action for up to three weeks after aggravating a pelvic issue during the World Cup.

Midfielder Naby Keita was a bundle of energy and the star performer of the new boys that showed why Liverpool were willing to shell out £52.75m and wait a year for the Guinean after agreeing a deal with Leipzig last summer.

Whilst not putting in a spectacular display, Keita's 7/10 performance was delivered with such ease on the ball, as if everything looked a little too simple for him.

"Second half we got better". You would have thought they were joking.

SADIO MANE, Liverpool's two-goal hero, hailing the Reds' opening-day performance. They will be hard to stop in the Premier League title race.

A few smart Fabianski saves could be considered a bright point, if you get past him conceding four. He spent much of last season on the treatment table, watching Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold flourish in his position. "We just have to make sure we keep this confidence and the way we are playing". "People from the outside just see Liverpool is buying players, so players who are already here are going to leave".

Klopp said Liverpool were "in a league that brings together six of the world's biggest clubs, who are all fighting for four Champions League places", which made his task "very hard". But feeling is one thing, doing it is the second one.

A summer splurge upwards of £170 million has thrust Liverpool into the spotlight with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho predictably among those suggesting that they "must" win trophies this season following such lavish spending.

Guardiola started with Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane on the bench as he recalled Sterling and gave a Premier League debut to Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez, whose move from Leicester was Guardiola's only major close-season signing.
