After goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino had given Jurgen Klopp's side a comfortable lead at half-time, Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson made a horrendous error to allow Leicester's Rachid Ghezzal score a consolation as the Reds won 2-1.

The Liverpool manager rotated in the group phase last season when Loris Karius started all six games against Sevilla, Spartak Moscow and Maribor, while Simon Mignolet was the confirmed first choice. In the end, if Alisson with the first touch puts the ball away, everything is fine.

"We have ticked that box now".

"He's got (Joe) Gomez playing alongside him now but (Dejan) Lovren's looked better since Van Dijk's arrived and Trent Alexander-Arnold and Robertson are improving all the time". We need all of the players, that's good.

Leicester City were a little unfortunate not to get a point against Liverpool on Saturday, with the Foxes' supporters echoing that sentiment.

"We maybe could have played the ball in behind maybe two or three times instead of going back.

And with this team they certainly should".

There were a number of issues with Klopp's men's performance - not least the lack of cohesion in attack and Alisson Becker's error for Leicester's goal - but the German was quick to remind that "result-wise it could not have been better!"

"Of course, I will not be stupid to make the same mistake. If we concede a second goal we have to take that as well".

"We've got a few big games when we come back but I think all the lads are just excited to go away with their global teams now and some get a break and we'll come back and we've obviously got a big game against Tottenham".

Ghana defender Daniel Amartey came off the bench for Leicester City as they lost to Liverpool in the English Premier League on Sunday.

"It was bad judgement".

"I've just got to stay focused and try to keep going". It was just unfortunate that I played on it [the injury].

Liverpool have started this season by winning all four matches, momentarily leaving them at the top of the Premier League table.
