Joe Gomez defends Alisson Becker after error

Joe Gomez defends Alisson Becker after error

Liverpool were not at their best at Leicester and Alisson's error was a nasty reminder of the Loris Karius howler that proved so costly in last season's Champions League final loss.

In the 63rd minute, with Liverpool 2-0 up, the Brazil worldwide tried a risky skill in a unsafe area and ended up losing the ball to Kelechi Iheanacho, who set up Rachid Ghezzal.

He added: "It is part of my game but I am not going to be arrogant to stand here and say I'm going to keep doing it".

Every manager has their excuses after a game that didn't run according to plan, but maybe the gaffer needs to think about shelving this one.

Fortunately for Alisson and Liverpool, the mistake didn't cost them, something that Klopp was obviously happy about.

'We have come through the period where it looked like we didn't need all of them because we played quite a consistent line-up and the level in training was high.

Leicester City were edged by Liverpool as first half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino left the hosts with too much to do.

His performances have been vital in Liverpool securing their four victories, as Firmino has struggled to rediscover some of his best form, while Salah has been heavily marked and strategised against to keep him out of games.

"It would have hurt him but I'm sure he would have learnt by his mistakes now and he won't be taking them chances again".

"We know that and I told the boys immediately after the game in the dressing room that if winning away games in the Premier League would be so easy, then everybody would do it constantly".

The Foxes were then handed a gift as Alisson made a huge mistake and Rachid Ghezzal pulled a goal back but Claude Puel's side couldn't find an equalizer.

"Play the pass at the right moment - not on a dry pitch and not hitting it hard enough". Don't do it in these moments. That was a mistake - no goalkeeper in the world should dribble in that situation. "But it's all OK". I didn't get a very good pass. Football is a game where lots of mistakes happen over 90 minutes, but that was a big one, a decisive one as we conceded from it.

"He was cool after when the crowd tried to make him a bit nervous, which is of course normal". I think they will learn from it, even though it is Alisson's style.
