• Klopp, however, savoured a good start in 4-0 rout of West Ham
Jürgen Klopp has said Liverpool face an “unbelievably hard” Premier League season despite opening the campaign with a 4-0 rout of West Ham United, their biggest opening-day win at Anfield since 1932.
The Liverpool manager savoured “a very good start” as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané, twice, and the substitute Daniel Sturridge scored in the comfortable defeat of Manuel Pellegrini’s new-look side. It was Liverpool’s biggest opening-day win since the 6-1 defeat of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in 1994.
