Klopp not getting carried away after Liverpool's opening rout

Share

From the first whistle to the last, Jurgen Klopp's team were vastly superior to a much-changed Hammers lineup, bench and management included, and the result was a fair reflection of the match.

Wilshere has been really unlucky to have his career plagued by injuries and owing to the same, he hasn't been able to make the most of his calibre. It may be argued as the season progresses as to who would we rather prefer, Keita or Coutinho.

MOHAMED SALAH set about proving he is no one-season wonder with Liverpool's first goal as they cruised past West Ham. The Estonian failed to make the squad for Liverpool's opener at home to West Ham United.

"Always you see things in preseason [against] different opponents and in different moments, but now the Premier League is a proper fight and immediately today that's the biggest change and then you hope as a manager that your team is ready for that, because you can not test it before you have the test".

He developed an instant understanding with Uruguayan superstar Luis Suarez and with fellow England global Raheem Sterling also breaking into the first team at the time, then manager Brendan Rodgers had one of the most potent attacking forces in the Premier League at his disposal.

Manchester City, the Premier League champions, and Liverpool, who are strongly fancied to challenge them this season, put down markers with impressive wins in their opening games of the new campaign yesterday.

"The plan is they are all happy because they played an important part in our season, so from my point of view all good".

Scott Sinclair's goal 12 minutes from time opened up the possibility of Celtic sneaking through on away goals, but they could not find the decisive strike.

Henderson might be slightly better in the middle of a trio but that's where Keita will be and Milner offers a better option for the right, especially going forward as we saw with his two assists on Sunday. That is good that people are positive, but this season will be unbelievably hard.

He was especially delighted by the showings of Milner - who had more touches than any other player and completed over 100 passes while wearing the captain's armband, setting up Liverpool's second goal with an instinctive cross.

Substitute Daniel Sturridge added a fourth late on, just seconds after coming on. But his quality was there for all to see during his brief appearance on Saturday, with a fine run from midfield taking out several Huddersfield players before he slotted in Pedro to score Chelsea's third goal.

"But I am not scared about that because the last two seasons he played a lot of games".

While they exceeded expectations last season - particularly in the Champions League - there were clear areas that needed improvement, particularly in midfield and in goal.

He's a top player we know that, and that's his first game, he's only going to get better I'm sure.

"So it was pleasing; we can improve, we know that".
