Klopp ‘completely happy’ after Leicester win

Liverpool maintained their 100% record so far this season by winning their fourth game on the trot away to Leicester City today.

An well taken early goal from Sadio Mane and a Roberto Firmino header on the stroke of half-time sent the Reds in at the break 2-0 up.

However, Liverpool’s goalkeeper Alisson committed at howler in the 63rd minute that allowed Foxes winger Rachid Ghezzal to pull one back for the home side and set up a tense finish.

The Anfield outfit held on for the win though and despite his team being nowhere near their best for most of the game, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp revealed that he thought his side deserved their victory.

“I think it was a deserved win and we had a brilliant start to the game. We played really well and attacked them in the right spaces and we were flexible.” Klopp told Sky Sports.

“We created chances, big chances, but didn’t score, then we scored. We could have scored earlier in the game, I said a few times in the past a dry pitch mean not good football, Leicester wanted to be aggressive but couldn’t because we moved so well.

“The moment the pitch got dry we needed too long to get used to it. Second half we have to control with the ball, we did that without the ball by dropping deeper. We were in a few situations a little lucky, but think we deserved to win.

“We had to do better second half and we didn’t.

“I’m completely happy. If winning away games in the Premier League was easy everyone would do it. We did it and I’m ok with that.”
