Liverpool continued their fine start to the new Premier League season by beating West Ham United 3-1 on Sunday. 

Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota were all on the scoresheet as the Reds cruised to victory against the Hammers, moving them up to second place in the table.

Next up for Jurgen Klopp’s side is a Carabao Cup game against Leicester City on Wednesday, before an intriguing trip to London to face Tottenham Hotspur next weekend.

In the meantime, the German has been handed a huge boost with one of his defenders committing his long-term future to the club.

On Monday, it was announced that full-back Kostas Tsimikas had signed a new contract with the Merseyside club.

The Greek defender joined the Reds from Olympiakos three years ago and has since made 63 appearances for the club across all competitions, providing 12 assists.

Tsimikas has committed his future to Liverpool

He has primarily acted as understudy to first choice left-back Andy Robertson, but he has now extended his stay at Anfield until 2027.

In 2022, Tsimikas scored the winning penalty as Liverpool beat Chelsea to lift the FA Cup at Wembley, competing a domestic cup double.

So far this season the full-back has made just two appearances across all competitions, playing just four minutes in the Premier League.

The 27-year-old played the full 90 minutes as the Reds defeated Austrian side LASK 3-1 in the opening game of their Europa League campaign last week, but has struggled for opportunities domestically.
