Liverpool open the season by brushing West Ham aside

Jürgen Klopp has said Liverpool face an "unbelievably hard" Premier League season despite opening the campaign with a 4-0 rout of West Ham United, their biggest opening-day win at Anfield since 1932.

Mane then struck in first-half injury time, finishing from a volley from James Milner at the byline.

Goals: Salah (18), Mane (45), Mane (53), Sturridge (88). "We had to create a squad which is strong enough and wide enough to cope with the Premier League". 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.

"We did not reach anything yet, we have been in finals and if we get there again we should try to win it".

Not including champions City who begin their season at Arsenal this afternoon, Liverpool looked by far the most dominant side following the first round of Premier League fixtures. After being 1-0 up, maybe we didn't have exactly the same dominance, we felt the intensity. Another season without silverware could see the end of Klopp. You saw we were not as compact anymore in that period when Arnautovic had a chance and they had a few set-pieces.

It goes without saying that you have lost many points and important results due to goalkeeping errors, not just last season but for many before that too. But it was the performance against West Ham rather than the scoreline that would've encouraged manager Jurgen Klopp. So that's really good.

"I feel as though we can form a really tight group, working together to support each other".

On feeling the expectation around the club this season...

Alisson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita all made their competitive Liverpool debuts against West Ham following their summer arrivals. You can not test before you have the test.

'He can play different positions, obviously, but I think this is best for the moment.

"We are Liverpool; there is no one on this planet that expects more of us than we expect of ourselves".

Despite spending in the region of £100million during pre-season, Pellegrini's squad were no match for an ebullient Reds side who swept West Ham away with two goals either side of the half time interval.

"I know a lot of people think that because we were active in the transfer window, but that is part of the business, it doesn't decide anything", added the German ahead of Sunday's opener at home to West Ham. Expectation - ours is the highest, but that changes nothing. There is some strength in depth there. I can see them and I can read the line-up and see then who is on the bench.

Bring the likes of Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain into the equation as well and you get the full picture. I am pretty open when I speak about this.

"At the beginning it isn't easy, especially for the new players learning with the guys".

"Somebody told me we were the unluckiest team".
