Liverpool manager Klopp confident Alisson will settle quickly

His powerful, smart movement was too much for Manuel Pellegrini's side as West Ham was often caught asleep when defending its penalty box. Let me say it like this, past year he already had a few problems with that but he could obviously play - and played really good.

"We can't be anything other than the challenger because we didn't win anything in a long time".

"We have to be more consistent, we know that".

Liverpool have also done very well in the transfer window this year. West Ham will be fuming with that, but it still stands. It's obviously far too early to tell but the signs are that Salah may just be as risky as he was last season.

With the new season beginning, you definitely won't want to miss the Sunday match of the week.

Midfield is also the obvious area in which Liverpool could have improved their starting XI this summer and the signings of Keita & Fabinho leaves you with a much stronger side now. Clyney the same, Dom Solanke, Divock Origi are all getting better and better and better, but that's what you need.

"In the moment someone thinks we reached already a point then that is when you start disappointing yourself and the people around you". What are your prospects for this season?

"West Ham will play, for sure, a good season but they are not the Uniteds, the Citys".

Replays showed that Mane was offside - a rare referee mistake in Liverpool's favour which would ultimately make no difference to the result.

Weed killer available in Britain blamed for causing cancer
Environmental Protection Agency says Roundup's active ingredient is safe for people when used in accordance with label directions. They deliberated for three days before awarding Johnson $250 million in punitive damages and $39 million in compensatory damages.

There are more hard things to accept in life [but] it's August and September and then we start playing three games in a week and then we don't have that problem any more pretty quickly.

"We know about our expectations and we know there is a really positive atmosphere around us in the pre-season - that is good".

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. For that... the start was good.

Brazil global Alisson arrived from Roma after the World Cup in a deal which could eventually cost Liverpool £65million. What are your thoughts about coming up against the likes of Firmino, Salah and Mané and how do you think you'll do to try and counter them?

There is no denying what Fekir would bring to Liverpool; a sense of creativity behind their phenomenal front three - a creativity which has been lacking since Phillippe Coutinho's departure to Barcelona last season - and the firepower needed to win trophies.

"We are the ones who have to do more, fight more, and that must be our attitude".

Of course, it is easier said than done though.

"We know the expectations; we have expectations as well", said Klopp.

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