Jurgen Klopp and his players will all have wanted to get the league campaign off to a flying start, and the Reds did that with a dominant display.
Anfield looked spectacular pre-match, with some fantastic new flags on display…
The Reds dominated from the off and Keita was at the centre of it, heavily involved throughout and immediately catching the eye.
Mane was in fine form and loving every minute, and he completed his brace after the restart with smart finish on the spin making it 3-0.
It was one-way traffic as the Reds controlled proceedings and Klopp took the chance to make changes—including introducing Xherdan Shaqiri for his competitive debut late on.
It’s fantastic to get off to a winning start, with Klopp’s side full of belief and immediately signalling their intentions to rivals for the campaign ahead.
The squad now enjoy a full week to recover before looking to make it two wins from two against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park next Monday night.
