English Premier League: Liverpool open season with 4-0 win

Liverpool's made the perfect start to their English Premier League season, thrashing West Ham 4-0 at Anfield.

Superstar Mo Salah opened the scoring for the Reds early in the first half, before a double strike from Sadio Mane either side of halftime put Liverpool clear.

Daniel Sturridge completed the rout just before full-time.

Liverpool handed EPL debuts to both of their high-profle signings, with Naby Keita impressing in midfield and Allisson making a sound start in goal.

"We played as good as possible today and we extended a really good pre-season into the Premier League," Liverpool boss Jurgan Klopp told the BBC     

"It was better than I could have expected. The performance of all the boys - and the midfield of James and Georginio Wijnaldum - was outstanding.      

"It's only the middle of August and then in September, the games will come. The future of football will be rotation - we need to be ready and have that quality."

West Ham were without Kiwi Winston Reid, who was still sidelined with a knee injury. 

Elsewhere, Chris Wood played 73 minutes, as Burnley drew 0-0 with Southampton.
