Liverpool handed debuts to big summer signings Naby Keita and Alisson Becker as five new faces started for West Ham – including club record signing Felipe Anderson.

Alisson was briefly the most expensive goalkeeper in history following his £67m move from Roma and after Chelsea’s £72m keeper Kepa started in a 3-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday, it is the turn of the Brazilian on Saturday.

Keita also starts in midfield behind the devastatingly effective front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
