Naby Keita Is Doing Absolute Bits On His Premier League Debut

“We didn’t win anything since I was in so we have to fight more and invest more”, added Klopp.

Pellegrini conceded that West Ham need to do better.

“The window is only one way closed”.

West Ham, though, are back in action next Saturday when Bournemouth visit London Stadium. We’ve made some new signings and it was going to be a tough start. “We know there is a really positive atmosphere around us”, said Jurgen Klopp after they fostered more hope.

“I’ve spent a lot of the summer being asked about what we expect of ourselves this season and what a fair expectation is from others”.

These were two of the biggest-spending sides of the transfer window, with Liverpool splashing out close to £177million and West Ham investing close to £100m, but only one of them looked anywhere close to a team.

The Egypt global had been involved in a tangle with Ramos a few minutes earlier, an incident which many accused the Madrid man of instigating, as Madrid went on to win 3-1. So to sign someone of Alisson’s calibre will definitely turn out to be a major coup in my opinion, regardless of the price tag, and it could be the difference between you winning a trophy and not winning one this season.

Keita also appears for the first time in an official game for Liverpool since moving from RB Leipzig.

The Hammers will be looking to announce their intentions to the Premier League teams by being the first team to defeat Liverpool in the League at Anfield after the Merseysiders when undefeated at home last season.

Replays showed that Mane was offside – a rare referee mistake in Liverpool’s favour which would ultimately make no difference to the result. If there’s any weak point we can exploit, we tried it. What are your prospects for this season?

But there could be a decent play for West Ham. They didn’t lose any player and they brought in (Riyad) Mahrez, so that doesn’t make them weaker.

“He’s still here, and he played a good pre-season”.

The reds had dropped down the gears but always looked like they had the fourth goal in them. What do you think of Liverpool’s new Brazilian?

“I don’t want to be the underdog”.

“A good performance, of course”, Klopp said.
