Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp: Easy 4 0 win vs. West Ham 'not perfect'

Jürgen Klopp was pleased with Liverpool's convincing start to the season, but has warned there will be much tougher tests ahead.

The Reds come into the game after a solid pre-season and manager Jurgen Klopp will be hopeful that his charges are able to translate that form into the game against Manuel Pellegrini's side at home and lead Liverpool to their 500th Premier League win.

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

A survey this week claimed Liverpool were last season's unluckiest team with decisions costing them 12 points but Sturridge turning home a deflected corner seconds after replacing Salah showed everything was going their way. Now it is important to be very good again and to achieve that last thing.

Alisson Becker, who signed for the Anfield Club in a record-breaking deal, without a shadow of a doubt, is set to occupy the position in front of goal for the whole season. "They are the best teams in the world and Liverpool is also one of them".

The reds matched the weekend's best Premier League win and it was no surprise that Mo Salah scored the reds' first goal of the season.

"We had to create a squad which is strong enough and wide enough to cope with the Premier League and to be as successful as possible", said Klopp on Friday.

The Reds looked comfortable in what could have been a tricky tie against Pellegrini's West Ham who never really looked like threatening the debuting Alisson in the Liverpool goal. A languid pre-season campaign coupled with four of their 10 new signings in the starting line-up only compounded matters for the Chilean.

"I have to say I've got a lot of respect for him", the midfielder told his club website.

Have they gone insane in the Premier League? Naby is in because he's a really good footballer.

"We have to try to reach the highest, that is always my expectations".

"We can not be anything different from the challenger because we didn't win anything since I am in anyway, [and] it's long time ago".

"Whether they have the capacity to catch a formidable City or not - and no matter how much opposition managers speak about Klopp having to start delivering a major trophy - it is better to be part of the conversation than on the outside listening in". To win the FA Cup he'll need to figure out what has been preventing them getting to the latter stages. I think the expectations and the demands on him will be as it should be.

They've also enjoyed feasting on West Ham's defence in recent games, winning this fixture 4-1 back in February and also sticking four past the Londoners in their last two trips south. After six weeks in I don't make the difference between a new player and another player because for me, it is exactly similar importance that Millie and Gini are ready to make the next step in their development as well.
