'He knows it was his mistake' - Klopp says Alisson blunder inevitable

'He knows it was his mistake' - Klopp says Alisson blunder inevitable

The ball became caught under Alisson's feet and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho stole possession to tee up Rachid Ghezzal, who dutifully slotted home the goal. I didn't think it would immediately happen the next week.

The goalkeeper made the mistake but it was the product of several small errors.

"I think it works so well in that you have a great leader in Virgil van Dijk", Carragher said.

"We have ticked that box now".

"It was last week when he did what he did and the way everybody spoke about it, it was clear that it would happen one day that we conceded a goal because of that", Klopp told his post-match press conference in Leicester.

To be fair, Alisson did warn fans that he has a high-risk style of play prior to the game.

"We shouldn't use him in the wrong moments - he is not a solution for us, he is an option".

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

In his first three games as a Red, the Brazilian had been commanding, dominant and imposing in the Liverpool goal and was showing all of the hallmarks of a world class goalkeeper - justifying the extortionate amount of money spent on him in the process.

"But that's not taking anything away from them (Leicester), they're a good team and they showed that".

Kasper Schmeichel, making his 300th appearance for Leicester after signing a new contract in midweek, saved his side within the first three minutes.

The Reds failed on a glorious opportunity to go ahead just four minutes in when Roberto Firmino missed a one-on-one before Mohamed Salah spurned the rebound following Kasper Schmeichel's save.

However, Klopp has moved to play down any talk of a rift with his new summer signing and hinted that he would make his debut soon after the worldwide break.

Huddersfield were also seeking their first victory of the campaign and there were two goals in two minutes as they took on Everton at Goodison Park.

Firmino doubled Liverpool's lead in the 45th by stooping to head home a corner from James Milner.

Too many times Liverpool cost themselves significant points when they weren't at their best.

Leicester boss Claude Puel was non-committal about whether they had targeted Alisson's tendency to dally on the ball. "Now we will keep this (in mind) for the away game", he said.
