English Premier League: Things to watch in Liverpool’s 2018-19 season

Who knows when he'll do that again, so let's just enjoy it while we can.

Liverpool prioritised the Champions League last season after securing a top-four finish. Of course, these are to be cherished, but from a professional perspective we must view it as something that has concluded - but something to progress from. The challenge now is whether they can take the extra step and secure silverware. I can address that in two parts.

On whether Liverpool made the ideal start to the season...

A word of warning, though: Those players might have returned refreshed in the short term from a post-World Cup break and mentally perky from their summer success, but it wouldn't be a surprise if some of them break down when autumn turns to winter.

It's reached a point with Sterling that even when he plays well, someone will find a negative: on this occasion, the negative was to say, "Why didn't he play like this for England?"

And the supporters positivity was echoed by their Chilean boss, who said: "I will try to play attacking football and score a lot of goals because, throughout my career, I have always been a manager who plays offensive football and tries to attack".

Neville feels the £75m arrival of Virgil van Dijk from Southampton last January has improved Liverpool's defence more than he first imagined, and compared him to former Manchester United defender Jaap Stam. "I am sure next Saturday we will see a team that is trying to win".

"Attitude in training and in the practice-matches has been outstandingly good, the highest level".

Wrong of U.S. to threaten Turkey, says Erdogan
Erdogan is also upset at the protection USA coalition forces are providing the Kurds in Syria , against the invading Turkish army. Trump's administration has made the welfare of American Christian preachers across the world a priority of its foreign policy.

The Guinea worldwide, who was signed from RB Leipzig a year ago in a deal which delayed his arrival until this summer, slotted in seamlessly and played a key role not only in the opening goal but in most of Liverpool's attacking invention.

Overall, though the goalkeeper wasn't tested, from back to front they were just far too good for West Ham, who got caught in a revolving door and they couldn't get out of it. It is what I see day-to-day in our team environment that gives me optimism and belief.

He could provide attacking impetus as a starter, but he is more likely to be making an impact off the bench given the form of the Reds' attacking trio last season.

"All of the above only works if the players have the character and desire to buy into it - ours do!"

"They were the better side in the first half and we think we were better in the second half". That is why so many are talking about them.

"He looked decent at times for Arsenal, didn't really get a chance".

And the Senegal worldwide added to his tally in the 53rd minute, with an assist from Roberto Firmino to become the first Reds player to score in three consecutive opening duels since Barnes' feat between 1989-90 and 1991-92.
