Salah on fire as Liverpool sink Hammers, Manchester City down Arsenal

The Reds underlined their Premier League title credentials with a comprehensive 4-0 defeat of West Ham in their first game at Anfield. Nevertheless, with a clutch of new additions to their squad - five whom were lined up by Manuel Pellegrini for their inaugural Hammers starts, as well as two more from the bench - hope sprang eternal for the unusually optimistic travelling supporters.

"Sturridge had a fantastic pre-season, the best since I've been here, and it gives us unbelievable new options".

Mane, who has now scored in each of his last three Premier League openers, and Salah, the league's Golden Boot victor last season with 32 goals, sealed Liverpool's victory in their first competitive game since they lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid in March.

"We can not be anything other than "the challenger" because we didn't win anything since I don't know when - certainly since I am here".

"It is hard to win every game, if we see how Wolves, Fulham or Everton act, they are all ambitious".

Liverpool's Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah (L) vies with West Ham United's French defender Arthur Masuaku during the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and West Ham United at Anfield in Liverpool, north west England on August 12, 2018. They know that, we know that and we have to be ready week in, week out for all the different challenges.

"I've spent a lot of time with him in this last month and everybody has been very nice to me and very friendly, of course, but Daniel's obviously a player with great experience and he's a very good player as well".

He said: "It's a very good start, for sure". The last two seasons at the London Stadium have been far from good enough with us flirting with relegation on both occasions.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Rize spoke of Turkey's plans to trade in local currencies with some countries. On Friday, Turkey's currency, the Lira, fell as much as 14%, causing the global financial markets to shudder.

But hey, it's the start of the season and this is the Premier League, anything can happen. You can not test before you have the test.

Liverpool never looked in any trouble during the second half and Sadio Mane made it 3-0 when he was fed through by Firmino at the edge of the area.

Speaking of the defensive situation ahead of the game, the Liverpool manager said in his pre-match press conference, "Dejan will not be available for the weekend, that's how it is".

And Klopp claims his squad and him have the "highest expectations you can imagine" for themselves for the upcoming campaign.

After a confidence-shattering performance in the Champions League final, Loris Karius is out as the number 1 in goal for Liverpool.

"We knew before the game that our start was very hard".

'It's a similar style of play and a similar position to what he did at Leipzig. To win the FA Cup he'll need to figure out what has been preventing them getting to the latter stages.

An emphatic 4-0 victory was the ideal way to begin that quest for glory.
