Jurgen Klopp confident Liverpool will get back to their best

Jurgen Klopp confident Liverpool will get back to their best

Liverpool built a 2-0 lead over Leicester City on Saturday afternoon through first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino - but a weird sequence in the 63rd minute allowed the home team back into the game.

Thankfully for Liverpool, it was only a consolation goal, as Roberto Firmino's header had put Liverpool 2-0 up prior to the mistake.

Klopp refuses to accept that Alisson's desire to take risks on the ball means the close-season signing from Roma has a style of goalkeeping that will cause problems.

After the game, we spoke to Rob Hayes from For Fox Sake podcast (@FFSPod) to get his honest assessment of the Reds' 2-1 win at the King Power. It's all fine. Now we have ticked that box as well - don't play all the balls to Alisson. Everyone has their style of play and we don't want him to change. We need all of them.

Fortunately for Alisson and Liverpool, the mistake didn't cost them, something that Klopp was obviously happy about.

It will be up to Alisson's discretion to work out in which situations it would be best to clear his lines rather than try and create every time he receives the ball.

"Until Robertson's got in the team, that's when they started keeping clean sheets".

"I am angry that I made a mistake that put the team in a hard situation", the Brazil worldwide admitted. We learn from it.

There were a number of issues with Klopp's men's performance - not least the lack of cohesion in attack and Alisson Becker's error for Leicester's goal - but the German was quick to remind that "result-wise it could not have been better!"

Despite a flawless start in terms of points, Liverpool are still to hit the heights they did in the second half of last season in reaching the Champions League final.

Woof. Not good. Just a silly mistake, and you can bet he'll clear the heck out of the ball next time, which coach Jurgen Klopp told him he should have done right after allowing that goal.

It was a very entertaining game played in a terrific atmosphere and I really enjoyed everything about the match-apart from the result.

Liverpool finally conceded a goal after more than eight hours of a league shutout, but maintained their best start to a league campaign for nearly three decades.
