Jürgen Klopp’s team defeated West Ham 4-0 of the Chilean Manuel Pellegrini and began the season in the English league with a similar trend to last season.
After a great season 2017/2018, in which they reached the final of the Champions League, those led by Jürgen Klopp are clear about the objective of this campaign: to win the Premier League. And it is that Liverpool never won this tournament since it began to be called like that in 1992.
And that’s how the Reds started the campaign, with a resounding 4-0 over Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham.
Four goals and three points. Picking up from where we left off at Anfield last season. 🙌

The first goal of the match was converted by the star of the red team, the Egyptian Mohamed Salah, who in the previous season reached a surprising record to be the top scorer of the domestic championship with a total of 32 goals.

The second score came thanks to Sadio Mané, who shortly before the end of the first half extended differences. In the second stage, the Senegalese international extended the score in minute 53. Three minutes from the end, the Merseysiders completed their categorical victory with Daniel Sturridge’s goal, who put the finishing touch to a magnificent afternoon at Anfield.
Liverpool started with a landslide and ratified what was done last season, to hope their fans have good chances to celebrate a title.
