Liverpool started their season with a bang as they thrashed West Ham 4-0 at Anfield in a match that looked increasingly one-sided as it went on.

As is expected with such a huge victory margin, there were strong performances from all the Reds players – including new arrival Naby Keita, who absolutely bossed the midfield.

But he wasn’t the only new arrival to grab the headlines on social media as Xherdan Shaqiri’s moment with manager Jurgen Klopp also went viral among Liverpool fans.

The 26-year-old Swiss, who had a brilliant pre-season, was preparing to come on as a late substitute when Klopp gave him one of his typical hugs. Shaqiri’s gleeful reaction to the hug was absolute gold as he was captured looking at his manager just like a son lovingly looks at his father.
