But Klopp did not leave the £53million man waiting any longer, naming him in his starting line-up for the first game of the Premier League season against the Hammers.

"Jack, in the 10 years that he played for Arsenal, he's a different player". The right-back won 3 tackles in the match and also won 6 duels.

Mark Hughes's side looked the more likely to score after the break but England worldwide Hart, who joined Burnley last week from Manchester City, produced some fine saves.

Maurizio Sarri didn't necessarily buy Jorginho in order to shift existing Chelsea players away from positions they've excelled in before. And since taking charge of Liverpool in 2015, the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Ben Woodburn have been given their chance to establish themselves as key members of the squad.

Naby Keïta impressed on his Liverpool debut as Klopp fielded the £52.75m signing from Red Bull Leipzig on the left of a three-man midfield. 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. It was hardly what you would expect overall from a £36million signing.

It may only be August, but Liverpool has let the rest of the league know their sights are set on the title.

Liverpool, meanwhile, did not even have to play amazingly well to look very promising.

The prize comes in the form of a $1,000 credit on the McDonald's app, $35,400 in cash and $15,600 to offset taxes. At a ceremony introducing The Gateway Arch in 1965, McDonald's gave out the first McGold Card to the mayor of St.

Liverpool maintained and continued their momentum in the second half, and their well-planned offensive moves helped them thoroughly dominate the Hammers.

And Redknapp believes van Dijk is going to further stake his claim as the best centre-back in the world this season.

They finished fourth during the last campaign, 25 points behind Pep Guardiola's rampant champions. Just how Clyne feels about that is one to keep an eye on.

And considering how much Liverpool have spent, Arsenal legend Wright believes they must win some silverware this term otherwise the season will be a failure.

Liverpool remained unbeaten in the league at Anfield last season, but drew seven of their 19 home games.

So often outgunned by the oil wealth of Abu Dhabi backed City or commercial giants Manchester United in recent years, Liverpool were the biggest spenders from the world's richest league this summer with a reported £170 million (US$217 million) splurge in the transfer market.

Any question marks over Klopp's hopes of getting his new players to gel quickly look to have been promptly dismissed.
