LIVERPOOL FC TWITTER CONFIRMED More stars are set to leave Liverpool

If you lose 4-0, it's not to have any excuses but I think in football, two or three balls decide the score.

"[It was] nice. An absolutely good performance, of course", he told reporters.

"I feel as though we can form a really tight group, working together to support each other".

The Argentine lined his men up in a 4-3-3/4-5-1 formation, but struggled against a pressing opposition spearheaded by the deadly trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

But the additions of Fabinho and Keita significantly improve Liverpool's quality in that area of the field and crucially fit perfectly into Klopp's high pressing system.

Manigault Newman also alleges that allies of the president tried to buy her silence. She then asked: 'Instead of the Bible?' before Mr Trump supposedly replied: 'Yeah.

This was the first occasion, however, that the Reds had kept a clean sheet with 21-year-old Joe Gomez excellent alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Like Liverpool, the Hammers got their business done early and they too have had seen some positive signs in pre-season.

Liverpool's midfield provided the foundation to both scorch and stifle with Gini Wijnaldum controlling well at the base, while Milner was core to every facet of play and Keita exposed spaces the visitors knew nothing about until he weaved through them.

"All the staff, all the people, not to mention the players". At the end of the season the plan is they are all happy because they played an important part in our season, so from my point of view all good.

"He's a ball-winner, [with] great drive and fantastic ability as well". Their squad looks much stronger than last season and they have a new-found belief that they are genuine contenders. Adam Lallana didn't come on and is getting better and better and better. Klopp has a plethora of personnel and tactical options at his disposal and that's the mark of title-winning team.

Always you see things in pre-season [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. A shallow, albeit rich, talent pool will not be a drawback this term. After last season's painful and horrid ending to a fairy tale Champions League run you'd think it would be hard for them to recover from such a heartbreaking end.

The mood within the camp and among their passionate fan base was never better heading into a season than it was this summer.

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.

Liverpool prioritised the Champions League last season after securing a top-four finish.

I don't know if we can play the same way in England. "I've seen the spirit, attitude and togetherness we need for our season". While Sarri left smiling, Huddersfield manager David Wagner felt his side had shown encouraging signs despite the scoreline.
