Liverpool Egyptian winger, Mohamed Salah, opens his Premier League season with Liverpool on Sunday afternoon at home against West Ham United.

There are more hard things to accept in life [but] it's August and September and then we start playing three games in a week and then we don't have that problem any more pretty quickly. I shall break it down in the form of snippets below with the aid of animations to back my points.

Jurgen Klopp's side made light work of the Hammers at Anfield to move above Chelsea at the top of the table, the latter having beaten Huddersfield Town 3-0 on Saturday.

West Ham won just three away games last season and are the team with most losses on the opening day of the Premier League with their record standing at 11.

Keita is set to play a key role in Liverpool's midfield.

Perhaps the most disappointing factor for West Ham fans will be the performance of Jack Wilshere, who simply disappeared for much of the game. They are used to the style of play, sometimes it needs a bit of time, I have no problem with that.

The buzz is good at West Ham too, compared to this time a year ago.

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.

Only Jordan Henderson and Dejan Lovren - albeit the Croatian returning crocked - required extended breaks from their exertions in Russian Federation and so Klopp has been afforded the luxury of a full pre-season with the majority of his squad.

The midfielder was a powerhouse in the centre of the pitch, bursting forward to start attacking moves and snuffing out the admittedly limited West Ham attacks easily.

With the new season beginning, you definitely won't want to miss the Sunday match of the week.

"We knew before the game that our start was very hard".

A once-great prospect whose last hurrah came in the late 1980s making a comeback against the latter-day heroes is a more accurate reflection of where Liverpool now sits. I'm looking forward to going back to Liverpool and Anfield.

"I'm not complaining just about one offside goal because I repeat that Liverpool played well and deserved to win, but I don't think that the difference was four goals". They deserved to win. I would expect us to perhaps sit deep (as most underdogs would) and narrow, limiting the space in behind and between the lines for Liverpool to create chances.
