LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: KLOPP’S LIVERPOOL SEND EARLY MESSAGE IN TITLE RACE WITH WIN OVER RIVALS
The League Managers Association’s five-man panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Liverpool for their emphatic 4-0 victory against Arsenal on Sunday 27th August 2017.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.

Liverpool produced another scintillating attacking display to defeat Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
Four days on from their dominant performance versus Hoffenheim, the Reds were arguably even more impressive against the Gunners as their irrepressible front three of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all got on the scoresheet.
Firmino’s header and an outstanding effort from Mane ensured they went in two goals to the good at the interval, with Salah adding a breakaway third early in the second half before Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to nod in a fourth.
