Liverpool open the season by brushing West Ham aside

Mark Hughes's side looked the more likely to score after the break but England global Hart, who joined Burnley last week from Manchester City, produced some fine saves. "We realised it was a very positive atmosphere around us in pre-season". 'It is good that people are positive, but this season will be unbelievably hard.

"I feel as though we can form a really tight group, working together to support each other. We have to invest more, fight more", he added.

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you".

"West Ham will have a good season but they are not the Uniteds and Citys - they know that, we know that".

Daniel Sturridge was introduced in the 87th minute and he scored seconds after coming on by turning home Milner's cross at the far post to round off the scoring.

Dorsey said he wants to bring in a group of receivers next week to help fortify a position where the Browns keep taking hits. Bryant just doesn't seem like he's in a rush to get there.

The move began with Trent Alexander-Arnold's vision picking out Keita in the centre-circle when Klopp was urging him to go down the line and the midfielder drove at the heart of West Ham's back-tracking defence to tee up the full-back.

And history says it would be a massive one given that the Hammers have won just one of their last 45 top-flight starts at Anfield.

West Ham head to Anfield on the back of four wins and two draws from their last six friendlies and, if the new boys can gel when the real stuff starts, a promising campaign awaits.

It will be interesting to see where Xherdan Shaqiri fits into the Liverpool puzzle, as the attacking midfielder enjoyed an impressive pre-season. However, these days it is rare that a Premier League team defends their title, a fact which will give the chasing pack a lot of hope.

"You can not test it until you have the test". For that... the start was good.

Mourinho 'angry and frustrated' after Man Utd centre-half signing flop
In May, the world-class Spanish goalkeeper won Manchester United's Player of the Year award for the fourth time in five seasons. He scored his first senior team goal with a lovely move around his defender and a fine finish to the far post.

Sturridge, who spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom, is enjoying a renewed sense of objective on his return to Anfield.

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.

Manchester City ran away with the league last season and were comfortably the best team domestically. We knew it was going to be hard.

Liverpool will be amongst those vying for the title and they look in a good position to challenge. To be a Liverpool player you need special qualities as a person, as well as the ability - they have this! "I was just happy to keep the ball out the back of the net", he said. In the first half we had two or three clear chances but we conceded the second goal in the last minute of the first half. By halftime, they were 2-0 up courtesy of supreme build-up from Naby Keïta, who fed Andy Robertson to cross for a Mohamed Salah finish before James Milner broke West Ham's offside trap and Sadio Mané punished the rearguard's inability to react.
