Liverpool receive seal of approval – from former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson

Liverpool's impressive start to the season has been given a surprising seal of approval – from former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Reds opened their Premier League campaign with a resounding 4-0 dismissal of West Ham United at Anfield on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring before a Sadio Mane brace was added to by a late strike from substitute Daniel Sturridge.

It was Liverpool's biggest win on the opening day in 24 years and their largest such triumph at Anfield since 1932.

And that was sufficient to impress the League Managers Association, who have voted the display from Jurgen Klopp's side as their LG Performance of the Week.

The decision was made by a five-man panel comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, ex-Everton boss Joe Royle, former Wimbleon manager Dave Bassett, ex-Peterborough boss Barry Fry and one-time Old Trafford manager Ferguson.

As a reward, Liverpool manager Klopp will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.
