Liverpool’s head coach Jurgen Klopp's faces a tough test in his first Premier League game against Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham.
West Ham have brought in plenty of new faces this summer to provide Pellegrini with a squad capable of turning around their recent struggles on the pitch، and Hammers fans are optimistic that this is the start of a new era at the club.
But there is little time for this new Hammers squad to gel as their first port of call is Anfield، where Liverpool - emboldened by a strong summer transfer window - will be looking to kick off their title challenge in style.
Liverpool vs West Ham kicks off at 1:30pm BST on Sunday، 12 August at Anfield.
Liverpool have beaten West Ham 73 times and lost 28 games against the Hammers، with 36 draws.
West Ham will be looking to better last season's 8-2 aggregate league defeats after losing home and away 4-1. Liverpool XI: Alisson; Clyne، Gomez، Van Dijk، Robertson; Milner، Wijnaldum، Keita; Mane، Salah، Firmino
