Desire Costs Very Little - Liverpool Legend Slams West Ham's Performance

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.

Key to Liverpool's elevated position as City's nearest challengers, despite finishing 25 points behind in fourth last season, is their £170million summer investment on four players. Although their goals owed plenty to the Hammers' terrible defending - and, in the case of Mane's second, an extraordinarily poor offside call - they looked slick, compact and unsafe from the first minute to the last. We know about our expectations and we know there is a really positive atmosphere around us in the pre-season.

"You can only imagine how good he's going to be with more time", said Liverpool midfielder James Milner. "It was a tough game before the game, during the game and after the game", said Manuel Pellegrini afterwards.

"Sometimes it's hard to start the season but we started very well in pre-season, we won nearly every game", he told liverpoolfc.com. We have to invest more, we have to fight more, we have to create more.

Emre Can departed Liverpool on a free transfer to Juventus, whilst Danny Ings is the only other major departure. Another season without silverware could see the end of Klopp.

Moreover, unlike many teams, Liverpool managed to maintain their level of intensity throughout the course of the game and that helped them outpace the Hammers.

This appears to have indicated that Klavan's short tenure on Merseyside may be brought to an end before the end of August, with clubs from overseas still able to recruit players from English sides.

'I also didn't think he would have the impact on Liverpool's defence that he's had.

"They were the better side in the first half and we think we were better in the second half".

Starting with a 4-3-4 formation, Liverpool had 64% of the ball possession and had 18 shots on the opposition goal out of which 8 were on target.

It was his goal since October, making it an impressive victory for Liverpool, who looks to dethrone Man City this season.

"I'm not complaining just about one offside goal because I repeat that Liverpool played well and deserved to win, but I don't think that the difference was four goals". We knew it was going to be hard.

Liverpool manage to maintain a certain cohesion in their offensive endeavours, often causing the opposition issues due to the fact that they have equal threats coming from both the flanks.
