7:37 pm
new era at the emirates stadium, same questions remain. we want to start here, the first match, with really good on the ambience and we wanted to show a good performance but it is clear today against manchester city that we could not give the fans the win. but i think here, we are going to feel very well in this match. in general, we make an excellent performance. considering the moment of the season that we are. a lot of players have a lack of condition in terms of
7:38 pm
physicality but we have more than two seasons together, we know more 01’ two seasons together, we know more or less what we have to do. we were aggressive in the middle, at the back. we make a good performance in general. liverpool have started their season with an impressive win over west ham with mo salah opening the scoring and there were more to come at anfield as adam wild reports. at anfield, the fans sing of having hope in their hearts, it's been some years since those hopes have been higher. there is a real belief that this liverpool sides now has what it takes to challenge the very best. in the first half, they had more than enough for west ham. mo salah remains the source of much of that optimism. liverpool dominant and finding more space than even they would have hoped for, sadio mane scoring a second before half—time. such a lead was no more than they deserve, west ham's chances few and fleeting.
7:39 pm
for a club that has invested heavily, this was a disappointing return, little resistance. sadio mane was possibly offside here, but his finish was as emphatic as the scoreline was becoming. such was their competence, salah was substituted, his replacement, daniel sturridge, adding a fourth with his very first touch. far more difficult tests lie ahead, but liverpool high hopes have grown higher. we played as good as possible today. we extended a really good preseason into the premier league season. that is the plan. not finished. a lot of players, rest of the season. it was good. not surprisingly good, but, of course, better than i could have expected. we knew before the game, that it was very difficult, not only for the first game, against liverpool, because we played four of the other big teams in the first five or six games. but recognising that liverpool played better than us is difficult.
7:40 pm
when you concede four. little to get excited about at st mary's where southampton and burnley played out a goalless draw but saints' manager was happy with what he saw, especially in the second half. i made a change early in the second—half personnel wise and shape wise and i think we got more pressure further up the pitch and we we re pressure further up the pitch and we were much betterfor it and pressure further up the pitch and we were much better for it and able to control the second—half and move them about a lot more than we were able to in the first half, we had any number of chances in the second half to win the game. overall, pleased with the first outing against a team that is ahead of us probably in competitive action. steven gerrard's smart,
