The season will be 'unbelievably hard', Klopp warns Liverpool after flying start

The season will be 'unbelievably hard', Klopp warns Liverpool after flying start

I'm pleased, absolutely, but actually that's what we expected.

"West Ham will play a good season but they are not the Uniteds or the Citys. We have to be ready week in, week out for the different challenges".

Daniel Sturridge was introduced in the 87th minute and he scored seconds after coming on by turning home Milner's cross at the far post to round off the scoring.

Afterwards, Klopp offered an update on Dejan Lovren's fitness and spoke of his satisfaction at the result and the performance of his team as they got their campaign up and running in style.

He said: "Very good start, for sure". Flawless because we won the game, but as a game not ideal, just really good.

With the new season beginning, you definitely won't want to miss the Sunday match of the week.

He said: "We knew it would be hard because we knew we were playing against one of the best teams of the Premier League, a team that had reached the final of the Champions League and one which has a lot of new players". You can not create that situation, that's what I mean when I said you can not test the test before you have the test.

Therefore, steering clear of that this year, playing some attractive football and ending with a comfortable top 10 finish along with a good cup run would probably be enough to appease many of our fans, with the ambition to progress season upon season from there.

Liverpool went in to cruise control for the majority of the second half, with Alisson not having a significant test to prove his £65 million price tag in the whole game as West Ham's attacking additions of Felipe Anderson and Jack Wilshere were nowhere to be seen.

Last season Liverpool surprised many by reaching the Champions League final but Jürgen Klopp's clever recruitment shouldn't have been underestimated. We went to finals.

"But am I thinking about it right now, in my current situation being tied to Liverpool for the next four years and only because Germany have just played a bad World Cup? No".

There is no denying what Fekir would bring to Liverpool; a sense of creativity behind their phenomenal front three - a creativity which has been lacking since Phillippe Coutinho's departure to Barcelona last season - and the firepower needed to win trophies.

An emphatic 4-0 victory was the ideal way to begin that quest for glory.

He said on the Gary Neville Podcast: "I think Liverpool are the side [City] will feel threatened by directly".

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.

"I am not complaining".

Klopp, who took over at Liverpool job in 2015 after guiding Borussia Dortmund to two Bundesliga titles, says he expects his players to fight to the last breath for the league title.
