Sadio Mane opened the scoring for Jurgen Klopp’s side after 10 minutes before Roberto Firmino doubled their lead on the brink of half-time. Liverpool maintained their 100% start to the season by beating Leicester despite a comical mistake from Alisson.
Rachid Ghezzal halved the deficit on 63 minutes after Kelechi Iheanacho robbed Reds keeper Alisson in his area. The victory means Liverpool have won their first four league games of the campaign for the first time since 1990-91.
Jurgen Klopp does his usual post-victory thing of commiserating with the opposition and celebrating with his players. But he doesn’t look in a particularly good mood. He’ll soon be giving his goalkeeper some beneficial advice, I’ll be bound. His team defended well apart from the slapstick goal, mind you; it’s the midfield and attack that creaked and clanked today. Some turnaround.
But they’re top of the Premier League after four games with a 100 per cent record, and their lauded attacking trio haven’t got anywhere near first gear so far this season. So he’ll not be fuming too much. As for Leicester, they were magnificent in that game, the better team for the most part. In James Maddison, they’ve signed a real star. On another day, he’d have prompted Leicester to victory, or a draw maybe, the very least they deserved. But in the end, Liverpool’s sharper attackers ensured the visitors made off with three hard-earned points.
