Consistency key for Sadio Mane to round out Liverpool's dynamite front three

After Liverpool made easy work of West Ham, the FC crew examine what makes the Reds capable of challenging Man City for the Premier League title.

When Liverpool's much vaunted "Fab Four" were lighting it up in the opening months of last season, Sadio Mane was very much the George Harrison of the group. Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah were John Lennon and Paul McCartney, the headliners, while Roberto Firmino was Ringo Starr -- not always fully appreciated by the mainstream audience but with his own cult of dedicated followers.

Like Harrison, Mane was an important part of a successful group and everybody knew who he was, but he was overshadowed...

James Milner, Sadio Mane star as Liverpool start with a bang against West Ham

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring in the 19th minute and Sadio Mane added two more goals as Liverpool went on to win 4-0 against West Ham.

Liverpool lived up to all of the preseason hype by swatting West Ham aside with the minimum of fuss. Jurgen Klopp's men dominated from start to finish and just had far too much for the Londoners. Two goals from Sadio Mane added to further strikes from Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge ensured a victory that was about as comfortable as it gets.

Positives

Too many to mention, but Salah and Mane getting straight back among the goals is exactly what Liverpool needed. A clean sheet for Alisson on...

Liverpool meet lofty expectations in season-opening win over West Ham

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring in the 19th minute and Sadio Mane added two more goals as Liverpool went on to win 4-0 against West Ham.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three quick thoughts from Liverpool's 4-0 win over West Ham in their opening match of the 2018-19 Premier League season at Anfield.

1. Liverpool meet expectations in season opener

Liverpool started a hugely promising season on the proper note. Expectations on Merseyside are as high as they've ever been -- and rightly so based on this compelling display.

Golden Boot holder Mohamed Salah appears to have picked up where he left off, as he scored the opening goal before...

Premier League tough for goalkeepers - ex-Liverpool coach Xavi Valero

LIVERPOOL -- Former Liverpool goalkeeping coach Xavi Valero will be back at Anfield on Sunday for the first time since leaving eight years ago.

Now goalkeeping coach at West Ham United, Valero was part of Rafael Benitez's coaching set up between 2007 to 2010, working with Pepe Reina at the height of his Liverpool career.

The Spaniard then followed Benitez to Inter Milan, Chelsea, Napoli and Real Madrid before joining up with Manuel Pellegrini at Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune in...

Jurgen Klopp spending puts Liverpool in title contention but squad still has holes

The ESPN FC crew delve into Jose Mourinho's latest comments about Liverpool's spending and Manchester United's lack of transfer activity.

After an active transfer window and a successful preseason, optimism at Liverpool is higher than for many years. That has translated into giddiness in some quarters. Some fans are even predicting a title win, never mind a challenge.

That may just indicate a desire to meet outsiders' estimates of Liverpool's chances head on. If the Reds should slip below inflated expectations this season, mockery would be unavoidable anyway -- so why worry about it?

Be as realistic as you like, point out the 90 points...

ESPN's Luck Index smashes cliche that luck evens out over time

The ESPN Luck Index examined how the 2017-18 Premier League would have looked if luck was not a factor. We'll back soon with the results.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop share personal accounts where luck had a significant impact in their footballing careers.

I can't believe the ref gave that decision?

The league are biased against us. We could have won the title if not for so many bad calls.

If we didn't have bad luck, we'd have no luck at all!

Sound familiar? It's the refrain of every single football fan at some time or other.

Oh, and you can forget that silly cliché that decisions even themselves out over the course of a season. We know that's not the case. In fact, you can work it out for yourself by simply flipping a coin: the more...
