Klopp not getting carried away after Liverpool’s opening rout

May JohnsonAug 14, 2018

At the Emirates Stadium, the spotlight shone on both sides as City began their quest to retain their title and Arsenal played their first competitive match for 22 years without Arsene Wenger as manager.

Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah picked up where he left off with last season's goal-scoring exploits when he gave Liverpool a 19minute lead against West Ham.

There were components to Pellegrini's set-up that looked promising at times in the first half and Marko Arnautovic wasted two decent chances, but the manner of their defending and their approach play in attack will be a cause for concern even after only one game. Mane and Salah in particular have been able to tuck in and occupy the West Ham's backline allowing Liverpool's fullbacks to overlap.

Keita's passing statistics from yesterday just highlight his stunning performance, as he may have only made 68 passes in total, but 60 of them were successful, and it's where the passes were made that shows him in a much better light. The Guinean looked the part in pre-season and will be keen on making an instant impact in the Premier League.

Liverpool now have a full eight days to recover until their second league game of the season against Crystal Palace on August 20.

According to Manchester Evening News, Juan wrote in his weekly blog: "I enjoy playing in the Premier League a lot. They know that, we know that and we have to be ready week in week out for the different challenges".

Started quickly to set aside the disappointment of the World Cup with Liverpool's first goal, a finely-taken effort and was unlucky to go in at the break with just one to his name as the outstanding Fabianski saved twice from him. Another mid-table finish is probably the ceiling West Ham can expect this season, but a Europa League qualifying spot could be possible if they get on a hot start.

West Ham were overrun in midfield, while the pace and one-touch football of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were overwhelming. They played better than us.

Here are five things we learned following the opening weekend of the 2018/19 season.

Liverpool FC haven't won the Premier League title but finished in second place in 2002, 2009 and 2014.

Van Dijk added: "We had a good pre-season with good results and games where we've played very well". Although their goals owed plenty to the Hammers' awful defending - and, in the case of Mane's second, an extraordinarily poor offside call - they looked slick, compact and unsafe from the first minute to the last. It has been 3 years since Klopp has taken over Liverpool and this was the first time that the manager has met with owners of Fenway Sports Group, engaging into Baseball and other activities in between the preseason and transfers.
