That's the only thing we expect from ourselves.
So how does that compare to the bench during Klopp's very first Liverpool match against Spurs on October 2015?
This was a seamless start to the season for Liverpool, who fielded two new additions in midfielder Naby Keita and the world's second-most expensive goalkeeper Alisson, and continued where they left off last term by dominating and demoralising their opponents.
"Always you see things in preseason [against] different opponents and in different moments, but now the Premier League is a proper fight and immediately today that's the biggest change and then you hope as a manager that your team is ready for that, because you can not test it before you have the test".
West Ham offered little as the hosts dominated, but Klopp was reluctant to decribe the performance as flawless.
The Reds kicked off their Premier League push on Sunday by brushing aside another team to have spent substantially in the transfer market, West Ham. We will see where it leads to. It is a start - not ideal but really good. "For that it was a clear start, it was good".
The former Manchester City manager said: "It was a tough game before the game, during the game and after the game".
Although Keita has only made one competitive appearance for Liverpool since his £54m move from RB Leipzig, The Sportsman reports that the odds on him winning the 2018-19 Premier League PFA Player of the Year title have been slashed from 20-1 to 12-1.
The seasons of Southampton and Burnley commence as they meet at St Mary's Stadium at 13:30 (BST), but the game is overshadowed by Liverpool's opener against West Ham which is played at the same time. We're going to enjoy that challenge. They deserved to win.
Key to Liverpool's elevated position as City's nearest challengers, despite finishing 25 points behind in fourth last season, is their £170million summer investment on four players.
Poor defending cost the London side a second goal just before the interval, to Sadio Mane, who added a third after 53 minutes from an offside position. Unused subs: Karius, Clyne, Fabinho, Lallana.
Solid in defence, the Scot also provides an attacking threat down the left flank and it was his overlapping run and low cross that presented Salah with a tap-in for the opening goal against West Ham.
