FOOTBALL: Liverpool vs West Ham (YB)

What a great start to the new season for us with a sensational 4-0 over West Ham!

No less than us fans have come to expect, that Mo Salah opened the scoring in the 19th minute. With Mane adding a second just before half time and a third just after half time. Sturridge came on as a sub and managed to score the fourth just seconds after coming on.

Alexander-Arnold was amazing for us last season, but he wasn't at the top of his game today. He made some very disappointing crosses into the box that way overshot everyone.

We didn't get to see much from Alisson in goal as West Ham were never really a threat, but he seemed comfortable on the rare occasion there was any danger.

It's been a long time since we've seen much of Sturridge, but he definitely made an impact after being subbed on. I can't see him becoming a part of the first team as a regular though as I feel he is outclassed by Salah, Mane & Firmino.

It was great to see Keita in action for the first time. He definitely made his presence felt in midfield in our first match of the season. I'm looking forward to seeing how he performs in the next matches too.

I was disappointed not to see Shaqiri in the starting XI though. He made quite the impact when he came on as a sub.

Wijnaldum played brilliantly, but was consistently disappointing in front of goal with several missed opportunities.

Van Dijk and Gomez did well in defense.

Looking forward to our next match vs Crystal Palace next Monday...
