Alisson: I'd be arrogant not to learn from Leicester mistake

Alisson: I'd be arrogant not to learn from Leicester mistake

We knew we have to make a big fight of it. "And that's why we won the game".

"Massive (result). It wasn't a good performance in most aspects; pressing defending, keeping the ball, it was tough work".

It was under Fenway Sports Group that Boston Red Sox broke sport's most famous curse but the owners might wonder if there is another piece of voodoo they need to lift. We need all of the players, that's good.

And then comes the home clash with City on October 7 - a game that will see Liverpool chasing a fourth successive win against Guardiola's team.

"I didn't think it would happen in the next match. That's what you have to do sometimes in the Premier League".

Goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino set Liverpool on their way against the Foxes Saturday, and they withstood heavy pressure from the hosts to hold on to all three points.

"It wasn't a situation where you pass the ball back".

"If Alisson clears the ball away, all fine, but he doesn't do that and for some reason, he dribbles and they score the goal".

"Gomez did really well at right-back last season but it was always evident watching him he was a centre-back of the future".

Watch Sacha Baron Cohen Try to Trick O.J. Simpson Into Confessing
Simpson has denied murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson in a spoof interview with prankster Sacha Baron Cohen . After Simpson said he'd have to introduce him to his late lawyer in the afterlife, Gio replied, "What?" O.J.

The manager, though, sees long-term advantages in Liverpool not being at their spellbinding best just yet. I actually think it was a foul but I don't want to blame it on that.

"We shouldn't use him in the wrong moments - he is not a solution for us, he is an option. We did it a few times too much and it's not cool".

However, in a fatal error of judgement, instead of booting the ball out for a throw, Alisson made a decision to dawdle, get the ball caught between his feet and lose out to Iheanacho.

The German tactician said he expected the mistake but urged his players to stop putting their goalkeeper in hard situations.

"I can not say too much, it really is something between the player and the FA". I didn't get a very good pass but we talked about that in the dressing room and I spoke to Virgil.

"I'm just working every day to improve".

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson insists he will not make the same mistake again after his gaffe against Leicester.

Despite a dominant 4-0 victory against West Ham on the opening weekend, Klopp's men have edged out Crystal Palace (2-0), Brighton (1-0) and Leicester (2-1) to lead the Premier League table heading into the two-week break.

When you are playing a team that is challenging for trophies, you have to start with a certain level of intent and intensity.
