Jurgen Klopp defends Liverpool FC summer signing

The 24-year-old made 46 appearances for Monaco last season, scoring eight goals and assisting in a further five strikes.

"It needed to happen so that it will not happen again, if that makes sense? I didn't think it would happen during the next match", Klopp said to BBC Sport.

"Joe (Gomez) could have cleared the ball, Alisson could have too". It's all fine. Now we have ticked that box as well - don't play all the balls to Alisson.

"He was texting me throughout the [U17] World Cup, then he called me after we won to say congratulations", the teenager told FFT. As a team we're still in that period where we have to adapt to each other.

Leicester were ultimately unable to capitalise on the lifeline handed to them but Liverpool FC can consider themselves lucky that the Brazilian's mistake was inconsequential this time.

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

Liverpool's fourth straight league win saw them maintain their ideal start to the season.


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.

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

Salah forced Schmeichel to push his shot around the post, and from their second successive corner, Firmino met James Milner's flag-kick with a firm header from 10 yards.

"He will come back".

"For some reason, he didn't do that, he dribbled and they scored the goal".

Meanwhile, Gomez has backed new signing Alisson to carry on being confident with the ball at his feet, despite an error against Leicester.

It was the first goal Liverpool had conceded in 418 minutes of Premier League football going back to May 6 and the first Alisson had allowed in club football since last season's Champions League semi-final when he was playing for Roma, against Liverpool. "Hopefully we can carry on taking our chances and keep progressing". "Once we've reflected on the game, we'll look back and we tested Liverpool and dominated for large spells of the game especially in the second half of the game".
