Jurgen Klopp reacts to Liverpool star Alisson's performance

Jurgen Klopp reacts to Liverpool star Alisson's performance

"West Ham was an all-round good performance from start to finish - for the first game of the season you couldn't quite imagine it going better", the No.26 continued. It is not about who we play but about how we play.

"Our players can play until 36, 37 even 38, and because of his physical abilities, I am pretty sure Milly is one of them if he is lucky with injuries".

Fabinho, meanwhile, has welcomed the battle for places at Liverpool. Mane already has three goals from his two appearances, while Salah has hit the back of the net once and has two assists under his belt.

"If anything happens to a player, there's adequate cover". They nearly had a way back into the match four minutes after the restart when Naby Keita was caught in midfield but Anthony Knockaert slipped as he shot and his effort was no trouble for Alisson in the Liverpool goal.

Fabinho faces competition from Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Adam Lallana, Naby Keita and Georginio Wijnaldum to seal a regular starting role in Liverpool's engine room.

"It's a very hard division but we've been very good in the last two games", he said.

"And really not only a goalkeeper, a player as well".

Liverpool can not afford a slip-up at Anfield Road against a visiting Brighton team that are off to a great start.

Jurgen Klopp's side were not at their fluid best, with their most risky moments coming before Salah struck.

Chris Hughton's side beat Manchester United last time out and Klopp knows his side will have to be right on it to get their third victory of the new campaign. "I like him a lot and he will be in our squad". "We have to be awake and we have to be 100 per cent spot on".
