This Is Naby Keita's Best Position Right Now - Jurgen Klopp

This Is Naby Keita's Best Position Right Now - Jurgen Klopp

When he starts for Liverpool it might be very bad news for their opponents with him and Keita in the middle of the park, Bernardo Silva will be hoping his powers of persuasion don't have a negative impact on City.

Mohamed Salah picked up where he left off last season with his 45th goal in 53 appearances for the club while Sadio Mane maintained his record of scoring in each opening match of the campaign since he moved to Anfield in 2016.

There were components to Pellegrini's set-up that looked promising at times in the first half and Marko Arnautovic wasted two decent chances, but the manner of their defending and their approach play in attack will be a cause for concern even after only one game.

Keita, who was recruited from RB Leipzig after a year's wait for an initial £52 million (S$91.2 million), did the No. 8 jersey - worn by former captain Steven Gerrard and not used since his 2015 departure - proud and showed that the delayed gratification had been worth it. "For that it was a clear start, it was good".

That Eddie Howe is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League is another marker of Bournemouth's steady progress. Then, in the 88th, oft-injured striker Daniel Sturridge bundled in one more for good measure with his first touch of the game, less than a half-minute after taking the field as a substitute.

The opening weekend of Premier League season 2018/19 concluded on Sunday with three games, and they certainly did not disappoint. Sometimes we want to kill him and sometimes you think wow what a player we have. "We have to be ready week in, week out for the different challenges". That's really hard but something we look forward to because you want to compete with the others and City are one of the best.




Jurgen Klopp was pleased with Liverpool's convincing start to the season, but warned there will be much tougher tests ahead. Liverpool haven't been crowned champions of England since 1989/90 and finished 25 points behind City last season. People from the outside just see Liverpool are buying players, so players who are already here are going to leave.

They managed three, although the third was clearly offside, but it could have been more such was their dominance.

Pep Guardiola's side were a cut above the rest of the league last season and are deservedly favourites to be champions again and become the first team in a decade to retain the Premier League trophy.

"But there does seem to be a definite threat from Liverpool at this moment in time, but Liverpool will have to prove that".
