Liverpool vs Leicester City: Jurgen Klopp weighs in on Alisson gaffe

Jurgen Klopp reveals he spoke with Salah on Egyptian FA rift

Liverpool Confirmed Lineup vs Leicester: Henderson replaces Keita in starting eleven

The Brazil global gifted the Foxes a goal in Liverpool's 2-1 win when he was robbed by Kelechi Iheanacho and Rachid Ghezzal scored.

Liverpool enter the first global break of the season atop the Premier League and will likely remain there, even if other sides like Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea win their respective games.

"It needed to happen so that it will not happen again, if that makes sense? I think that's okay and something to build on".

"No goalkeeper in the world should dribble in that situation".

Joe Gomez has backed goalkeeper Alisson to continue playing confidently with the ball at his feet and has spoken on his current run in the team.

"He's not going to have to buy me a vehicle or anything if I win", Ings said.

"We maybe could have played the ball in behind maybe two or three times instead of going back". As a team we're still in that period where we have to adapt to each other.

"We have to learn from our mistakes".

"When he's travelling up the pitch with the ball, his choice of pass, his decision making".

The way they started the game, they bore the look of champions, not just leaders.

In the wake of this, Foxes keeper Kasper Schmeichel spoke out in support of his fellow keeper, saying that he's been exceptional in his first three outings for the Reds.

Mane benefitted from a ricochet off Harry Maguire from Andrew Robertson's cross to give the Reds a 10th-minute lead, driving home left-footed.

"But how he plays at the moment, there's no doubt he should be in that group".

"He will come back".

Not only have Liverpool won all four of their Premier League matches thus far, they also boast the best goal difference in the division meaning they top the table ahead of Chelsea and Watford.

Ghezzal's strike is the only goal that Liverpool have conceded this season, and Klopp has claimed that he was glad the mistake occurred so they "do not have to wait for it now".

Leicester boss Claude Puel was non-committal about whether they had targeted Alisson's tendency to dally on the ball.

"I think there were times last season when we might not have seen games out and we want to try to correct that this year".
