Alisson rues Leicester error and says dribbling must be ‘last resort’

Liverpool fans hold up Salah name placards- The Egyptian has become a Liverpool fan favourite

The 23-year-old replaced James Madison in the 83rd minute but his efforts were not enough to help Leicester salvage even a point at home.

Liverpool's new goalkeeper Alisson made a high-profile mistake, but it failed to prevent his side continuing their flawless start in the English Premier League campaign with a 2-1 victory at Leicester City.

Liverpool's goal was breached for the first time in the 63 minute after a series of passes at the back from the visitors culminated in Alisson losing the ball to Kelechi Iheanacho as he tried to turn in the box, and the Nigerian teed up Rachid Ghezzal to tap into an empty net.

"So the defence is quite good although you could argue that they could do with another centre-half".

Despite the Foxes' best efforts, Liverpool held on for victory, and in doing so clinched their fourth straight win to start the season, achieving this feat for the first time in the Premier League era and since 1990-91.

"It's good to have the situation, but one needs more time or the others are already used to it". The Liverpool manager could be forgiven for having goalkeeping PTSD after Loris Karius's errors in the Champions League final, but in a fine example of positive thinking, Klopp claimed he was actually pleased the Brazilian's first clanger was out of the way. Liverpool keepers - what happens to them?

Klopp said that Fabinho had made "big steps" in recent weeks and could be ready to make his Liverpool debut after the global break.

The Reds will next be in action when they visit the capital to play the Lilywhites on September 15.

The Senegalese fired home the opener at Leicester, meaning he has now scored 15 goals in his last 21 matches, dating back to his hat-trick in Porto last season.

"I think that it was a foul, but we can't support ourselves on that". And now we have games every three days, and he has made big steps in the last few weeks. I made a mistake reading the play.

Neither the Reds or Hornets find themselves at the very top of the chart, with one surprise package ranking as the most improved side after four gameweeks. He's not the solution for us, he's an option.

Klopp says that he will need all of his players to deal with the fixture congestion.
