African trio star as Liverpool make superb start

Liverpool news Xherdan Shaqiri

But title favourites Manchester City delivered the ideal riposte in the late Premier League kick-off, defeating Arsenal 2-0 at The Emirates to start the defence of their crown.

"Every day we have the players on the Global Positioning System and we know the most amount of metres that he does before he has a rest". A convincing dismantling of West Ham in their opening fixture was most crucial in its role of carrying forward that pre-season hype into the start of the campaign.

"We can not test the test before we have a test".

Alisson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita all made their competitive Liverpool debuts against West Ham following their summer arrivals.

It fuels the optimism that this will be the season when the club ends it's long wait for a first league title in the Premier League era, but I would strike some notes of caution when it comes to making that kind of bold prediction.

The future looks bright for Liverpool as they bid to dethrone Manchester City as Premier League champions this year, but don't be surprised if Sturridge isn't a particularly big part of that challenge, or if he is even still at Anfield this time next year.

Back in the Champions League last season, records were sent tumbling by both Liverpool and Milner, who broke the record for most ever assists in a season of the competition.

Mo Salah scored the opening after a great run from debutant Naby Keita, while Sadio Mane scored either side of half time to settle any opening-day nerves.

Jurgen Klopp declared Liverpool's 4-0 victory over West Ham United in their opening game of the Premier League season as a "very good start" but "not ideal". "We played at a high level".

You've got 10 minutes to name those and the 32 other players aged 22 and under who feature below.

Daniel Sturridge completed the rout by finding the net with his first touch after coming on as a substitute and while the result justified Liverpool's billing as second-favourites behind Manchester City, Klopp knew it was comfortable against the Hammers.

With Oxlade-Chamberlain out and Emre Can at Juventus, Keita looks like he could be just the midfielder that Klopp was looking for.

Burnley dominated the first half and thought they had gone ahead in the eighth minute when former Southampton midfielder Jack Cork side-footed home, but the effort was ruled to have been offside.

The Egypt global has oozed confidence throughout pre-season and needed only 19 minutes to open his account.

"We have to be all together for the next game at home to Bournemouth". His timing of passing, drawing players towards him before he slips balls in, particularly to the left hand side - I think one led to the first goal. "We are clear and sure that we need to improve".
