Why we deserve three points, Klopp reveals after home win over Leicester City


Liverpool maintained their 100% start into the Premier League after their slim 2-1 over Leicester City at the King Power stadium.

New arrival Naby Keita sat the game out, as Jordan Henderson returned to the squad in the clash against the Foxes.

The Reds sit at the top of the Premier League table on levelled points with Chelsea after seeing off Leicester City, with one goal separating both sides.

Senegalese Sadio Mane rattled the back of the net after poking a 10th minute lead, to put the Reds in front, before Roberto Firmino comfortably chipped in a Milner’s assist. Salah missed an early sitter, before trotting off in the 71st minute.

Leicester City’s Rachid Ghezzal halved the deficit at the 63rd minute, after a horrendous error by 66.8 million pounds signing Alisson Becker.

However, Klopp was shocked and despite disappointed about the Brazilian mistake, the German tactician was quick to jump to his defence and said: He’s a fantastic goalkeeper who makes fantastic saves and of course in this situation he did not do what he should have done, but it’s all good.”

In addition, the German mastermind believed his team fought hard to earn their win against the Foxes, despite the monkey weather condition.

He added: “And then circumstances – the pitch was dry and it was the first summer day again after a long period. That’s it.

“It was exciting until the end but I’m fine with that.

“We knew before the game we had to make a big fight of it.”
