Enough celebration - Klopp discusses not parading Champions League trophy

Norwich head coach Daniel Farke

Sadio Mane will become the first Liverpool player in history to score in the opening league game of four successive campaigns if he nets against Norwich City on Friday night.

Asked about his targets this year, the 20-year-old said he wanted to maintain his peerless attacking contribution and also help his side to as many shutouts as possible.

Alisson was replaced by new signing Adrian in the Liverpool FC goal seven minutes before half-time after the South American shot-stopper suffered a suspected calf injury. "They did look a little bit toothless at times, in the sense of Liverpool every time they seemed to shoot in the first half, it went it".

Alisson's injury appeared to be innocuous enough after slipping from taking a goal kick in the 35th minute. He waived off the stretcher but needed assistance from the team's trainers to come off the pitch at Anfield. Still, it's a scary sight for all Liverpool fans.

Alisson underwent tests on Friday evening and again on Saturday morning.

It would have been incredible for Max Aarons, Jamal Lewis, Ben Godfrey and Todd Cantwell to pit their wits against Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk given that a year or so ago they could only have dreamed of doing so during a successful game of Federation Internationale de Football Association on their Playstations. Check out this quick, flawless touch before Salah made it 2-0 19 minutes in.

The Reds had the best defensive record in the league last season and will be looking for a swift return to solidity. This will ingest almost two weeks, before returning for the Champions League group stages next month.

What a valuable player he is proving to be.

Liverpool's fourth goal came only minutes before half time from a smart header from Origi who received an awesome pass from Trent Alexander Arnold.

The newly promoted club, who had finished at the Championship's summit last season, had been hoping to pull off a shock result at Anfield but were instead faced with an opponent in ruthless scoring form.

"Adrian is a good goalie", said Klopp.
