Liverpool's Mohamed Salah scores their first goal.

Last season's Premier League top scorer Mo Salah was on target again as Liverpool began their campaign with an easy win at home to West Ham United.

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

West Ham's new manager Manuel Pellegrini gave debuts to five of their 10 close-season signings, but his revamped team rarely threatened Liverpool's expensive new Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson.

Poor defending cost them a second goal just before the interval, to Sadio Mane, who added a third after 53 minutes from an offside position.

Substitute Daniel Sturridge made it four just seconds after coming on.
