Jürgen Klopp: Liverpool can not be anything but the challenger

Jurgen Klopp

There was also something very different, a huge improvement.

Klopp was full of superlatives when describing his new £53m man Nabby Keita.

"The year before against Juve he was responsible for the red card for [Juan] Cuadrado". They take the game to the opposition with such breathtaking speedThere is no sideways nonsense, waiting for sophisticated openings with midfield players doing pirouettes and starving strikers of vital service.

Whilst not putting in a spectacular display, Keita's 7/10 performance was delivered with such ease on the ball, as if everything looked a little too simple for him.

Klopp has been vocal with his criticism of the Real skipper in the months after the final, recently branding his performance 'ruthless and brutal'. Keita will also cause a selection dilemma for the German though, albeit inadvertently. "But a few goals, a clean sheet at home and a win is pretty much the flawless start to the season".

It was an agonizing wait for our Sunday clash with the London side, to say the least, as anticipation was rising more and more as the weekend went on.

Liverpool finished 6th the following year and Sturridge missed over 5 months of the season due to injury, which would become a recurring theme over his next three seasons with the club.

"It's the decision in possession that makes the difference, not necessarily the possession".

There hasn't been a player to divide opinion between fans like Henderson since Michael Carrick.

"He can play different positions of course, but I think No. 8 is his best in the moment, so that's all cool".

Iran's supreme leader says no war or talks with U.S.
More than 60 people, including several officials, have been arrested on charges that carry the death penalty. The protests over the cost of living have often turned into anti-government rallies.

The truth is probably somewhere in between.

Liverpool continued to pour forward and, though a third goal was a fair reflection of their superiority, they benefited from an offside goal when Mane made it 3-0.

He's a decent player but lacks a certain spark.

Naby Keita, you would hope, can bring that quality.

Despite getting off to a winning start against Leicester on Friday, all is still not well at Manchester United between star midfielder Paul Pogba, manager Jose Mourinho and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. "Keita's the future, no doubt about that and he's what they needed in that midfield".

James Milner is having something of a renaissance under Klopp and the 32-year-old deserves a regular starting place in the middle. We're going to try to keep the same level and keep going.

The Red's signed Sturridge back in 2013 from Chelsea, where he had spent 4 years of his career languishing on the fringes of the first team as well as playing for Bolton Wanderers on loan.

So where does that leave Henderson?

The Real Madrid defender had some words of consolation for Klopp, saying he had given him his vote as Spain captain for the [presumably] 2018 FIFA "The Best" awards.

He said: "It's a very good start, for sure".
