A very good and important win for the Reds, Liverpool FC, against the Hammers, West Ham United, in the Premier League debut where Liverpool got three important points with an amazing performance to prove that they are one of the main Premier League title candidates.
Liverpool opened the score sheet by their main star, Mohamed Salah, where he scored the first goal followed by his teammate, Sadio Mane, who scored one goal in the last seconds of the first half, and his second goal and third goal for Liverpool shortly after resuming the second half.
Moreover, Daniel Sturridge was awarded a goal seconds after walking on the pitch, even though it seemed that it was an own goal.
