Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool has not failed to deliver yet again with a victory over West Ham. Welcoming a new season was kicked off with Liverpool’s superb display of tenacity, high energy, and hustle which was evident when they owned the match.
Although Liverpool won their home game, it is still highly expected by many that they deliver more than just the launch game. Liverpool did hit hard in the name of Klopp’s previous boxing analogies; the team is still a juggernaut not afraid to pack a punch.
Big football stars like Mo Salah, Daniel Sturridge, and Sadio Mane definitely showed up and delivered with proper execution. Mane made a distinct goal scoring for Klopp’s side in his third attempted goal early in the second half of the game.
Manuel Pellegrini takes the rails from David Moyes and surely reflects the execution and moves of West Ham when up against Liverpool. The delivery was desperately familiar despite five new signed members. West Ham’s performance only paved ways for Liverpool to go in with their famous attacking moves. This enabled Liverpool full-backs to play like wingers which set the team for victory.
A little after Liverpool scored their third goal, 32-year-old James Milner, struck a free-kick straight into Jack Wilshere’s midriff. This caused an epic fall down in his efforts to grasp a loose ball, Mo Salah stepped up and made a hasty kick between Mark Noble’s legs. This stage of the game set off West Ham’s fate throughout the rest of the game.
It is in everyone’s hope that West Ham learns from this match and quickly settles their new dynamic. Before the end of August, West Ham is set to face Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United thus, the drastic need to shake things up.
