English Premier League Report: Liverpool v West Ham United 12 August 2018

In the Sylvester Stallone film, the eponymous hero wins a 15th-round knockout against remorseless 100-win heavyweight Ivan Drago, who had previously killed Apollo Creed in a fight in which Balboa was in his fellow American's corner.

"We can not ignore that when trying to redefine Klopp as some kind of chequebook manager, or Liverpool's American owners as Roman Abramovich-style benefactors". I would expect us to perhaps sit deep (as most underdogs would) and narrow, limiting the space in behind and between the lines for Liverpool to create chances.

"Always you see things in preseason [against] different opponents and in different moments, but now the Premier League is a proper fight and immediately today that's the biggest change and then you hope as a manager that your team is ready for that, because you can not test it before you have the test".

"Why should we do that?"

"Regarding our net spend in the past transfer windows, we are still far behind any of our rivals". With Anderson and Antonio out wide, that could put us in a promising position to counter a makeshift Liverpool back four and who knows what Arnie can come up with.

Perseid meteor shower: how to see shooting stars this weekend
The meteor shower's peak is expected to occur the night of Sunday, Aug. 12 into the wee hours of Monday morning. If you are in a city, try to get somewhere at least somewhat sheltered from lights, maybe a park or backyard.

West Ham manager Manuel Pellergini responded by introducing former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez after the hour mark. For nine years I've lived with that situation, it's no problem.

"We are still very much an "insurgency" - we are a club that has built season-on-season, we have shown a commitment to the development of our players and a commitment to coaching and training".

Liverpool FC brought in Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita and Alisson Becker as they moved quickly to strengthen their squad. "Be yourself, in this case, because he is very calm and laid back - and that helps", said the Reds boss ahead of Sunday's visit of West Ham.

"They were obviously taller than us today so that was always a bit tricky, plus the wind. I'm pleased absolutely but that's what we expected".

But hey, it's the start of the season and this is the Premier League, anything can happen.

"We want to be, it has been clear for ages, champion of England and winning the league but how can we say that?" Klopp spoke of his desire to make Mourinho lighten up ahead of last month's International Champions Cup (ICC) in MI where Liverpool thrashed Man United 4-1 in a largely meaningless friendly. What about the other clubs?

"City like to push up the pitch, the centre-backs play high and even push in when they're attacking". That's how it is, they know that and we know that and we have to be ready week in, week out for all the different challenges.

"We have to be more consistent to be there and more clinical and aggressive in the right moments".

"We did not reach anything yet, we have been in finals and if we get there again we should try to win it".

And Klopp said: "There are expectations but we have expectations as well".
