Klopp not getting carried away after Liverpool's opening rout

"Certainly in terms of the style of play, Liverpool have certainly got the measure of Manchester City". Liverpool, meanwhile, have not conceded a goal in their last six home games in the league - since West Ham scored against them in February.

City have now lost only one away game in the league - at Liverpool - of their last 21, and manager Pep Guardiola was delighted with them. They reached the final of the Champions League and bought a lot of new players.

The Egyptian gave Juergen Klopp's side the lead after 19 minutes from Andy Robertson's precise low cross.

Salah's touching moment was just one highlight from the Reds' impressive performance against the Hammers.

Soon after debutant Riyad Mahrez was substituted in the second half, having earlier forced Petr Cech into a good save, Bernardo Silva added the second goal in the 65th minute from an assist by Benjamin Mendy.

Pellegrini was unhappy with the officials' decision to let Sadio Mane's second goal stand, with the Senegalese forward well offside, but the Premier League title victor concedes that a vast improvement is required at the London Stadium in six days' time. Pep Guardiola's side swept to the title last term with a record 100 points and they were quickly back in the groove at the Emirates Stadium. No team has successfully defended the English title since Manchester United in 2008-09. Mane was shifted from the right to the left after Mo Salah arrived past year but his impact on the team has remained and all the signs suggest he is ready to take his game to the next level.

"When you bring so many players it is hard to adapt", he said. We have expectations as well. "We are satisfied for many reasons", Guardiola said.

Arsenal were playing a competitive match without Wenger in charge for the first time since September 1996.

The midfielder is set to make his Hammers debut at Liverpool on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, after joining his boyhood club on a free transfer from Arsenal.

"We wanted to show our best performance, but the first half we didn't play like we wanted". That's what we spoke about and what we expect from ourselves.

Guardiola started with Kevin De Bruyne and Leroy Sane on the bench as he recalled Sterling and gave a Premier League debut to Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez, whose move from Leicester was Guardiola's only major close-season signing.
