"It's only an English thing, where you can win the league in the transfer window".

Klopp's strength in depth has been greatly elevated, even without having a full roster to select from yet. We've all been working very well together and hopefully this is going to help us on Sunday to put it into practice in the league. "It's good that the people are positive, but the people know as well that this season will be unbelievably hard", he said. We can not be anything different than the challenge because we didn't win anything for a long time. I know the quality of this team and you can see it on the pitch that I have started working well with them and passing well with them.

Liverpool welcome Manuel Pellegrini's men to Anfield on Sunday afternoon to start a campaign in which they have been widely tipped to offer the stiffest challenge to champions Manchester City.

Liverpool, though, were comfortable without ever needing to hit top gear and certainly look like the title challengers most consider them to be.

It has been part of a learning process for Hicks and Gillett's successors Fenway Sports Group, who have had to withstand their fair share of scrutiny; not least when a mass walk-out in 2016 prompted a U-turn on plans to hike up the costliest match tickets at Anfield to £77 ($129).

The Reds have been keeping a really high line in their warm-up matches and teams have been getting in behind on occasion so the Austrian could benefit.

Butlin's warns data of 34,000 guests may have been hacked
The firm is now contacting people who may have been affected to inform them and tell them what they should do. The holiday firm, which has a site in Bognor Regis, West Sussex, said it takes guest data seriously.

The game featured the debuts of Alisson Becker in goal, and Naby Keita in the midfield. The Reds are one of the favorites to win the league, while the Hammers have spent over $100 million on new players, highlighted by talented Brazilian Felipe Anderson from Lazio. Special mentions should go to Roberto Firmino, who constantly dropped deep to link play and create space for Salah, as well as partner in crime Mane who was devastating up front too.

Worryingly for the rest of the chasing pack, this Liverpool side is not the finished product.

Daniel Sturridge rounded off the rout late in the game, as he scored just 20 seconds after coming off the bench.

"Nobody knows exactly how valuable or worthy a pre-season is. Liverpool played well, but I don't think the difference was four goals". They played better than us.

One of Klopp's big early statements came in the 4-1 win at Pellegrini's City in November 2015 and Liverpool won the Anfield fixture 3-0 the following March. Although their goals owed plenty to the Hammers' awful defending - and, in the case of Mane's second, an extraordinarily poor offside call - they looked slick, compact and unsafe from the first minute to the last.
