That is why so many are talking about them.

The German had also implored supporters to stop being "doubters" and help "write a new story".

Mane scored in the Champions League final, both legs of the semi against Roma and the 3-0 home leg of the quarter-final v Man City so he's a massive part of Liverpool's lethal front trident.

Xherdan Shaqiri went bolder, insisting "nothing is impossible". We can be everything we want to be.

"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".

Against the East London side, Liverpool tattooed their intentions at every possible juncture.

Goals from Salah, Mane and substitute Daniel Sturridge were enough to sink the Hammers in Pellegrini's first game in charge.

They've also enjoyed feasting on West Ham's defence in recent games, winning this fixture 4-1 back in February and also sticking four past the Londoners in their last two trips south.

Having guaranteed to deliver "attacking football", his new look team failed to deliver on his word at Anfield, managing just two attempts on target all game.


And yet, it wasn't exclusively Liverpool's ability to illuminate in the final third that courted applause.

Joe Gomez has returned to training after sitting out in the friendly against Torino and should be set to partner Virgil van Dijk at the heart of the defence, looking to stop the unsafe Marko Arnautovic. His four clearances and nine ball regains were the most in the match. He will start as the deepest of the three midfielders, with Keita on one side and Georginio Wijnaldum on the other.

The mesh of explosiveness and steel was one of the most encouraging elements from Klopp's side, which they will have to continuously implement - especially in more challenging fixtures. Set plays, corner kicks, he delivers into risky areas.

On Liverpool's greater strength in depth this season...

"After six weeks I don't make the difference between a new players and another player, because it's exactly the same importance that Milly and Gini are ready to make the next step in their development".

So we have to invest more, we have to fight more, we have to create more. That's what we spoke about and what we expect from ourselves.

And he is confident that the high level of understanding between the players will be beneficially for the Reds as they look to contest the title this season.

Liverpool, though, were comfortable without ever needing to hit top gear and certainly look like the title challengers most consider them to be.
