Graeme Souness praised Liverpool after their 4-0 victory over West Ham at Anfield on Sunday, calling his performance "fabulous".

"They were fabulous, it's what I expected," said Souness Sky Sports.

"They finished with West Ham, too much quality, too much energy, especially from the beginning, the prank they cause in the last third."

"The goalkeeper was not tested and from back to front they were too good for West Ham today." Liverpool will face tougher tests than Manuel Pellegrini's West Ham this season.

But former England women's international Alex Scott questioned why the Hammers prepared to keep a high line when the Klopp team is famous for playing in high press.

"They used it as their tactic, but you're probably playing against Liverpool by moving the ball fast, why did not they adapt in the game?" That clearly was not working.

Souness added: "I do not think there's anything wrong with trying to keep a high line, but it's about where you have a higher line."
