Alisson vows not to repeat mistake after blunder

Not since 1990/91 have Liverpool won their opening four League games but first half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino effectively sealed the points. Firmino then went on to score his first goal of the PL season to double Liverpool's lead, meaning by half time it was Leicester 0-2 Liverpool.

Alisson dithered on Virgil Van Dyke's poor back pass to allow Iheanacho to steal the ball and cross for Ghezzal.

After the game, we spoke to Rob Hayes from For Fox Sake podcast (@FFSPod) to get his honest assessment of the Reds' 2-1 win at the King Power.

No goalkeeper should be "Cruyff turning" attackers in his own box, and it can be assured that when a similar situation comes to fruition, that he ought to put his foot through the ball and send it away from danger.

Jurgen Klopp insists Fabinho could play for Liverpool "at the moment" and claims he has no problem with the Brazilian despite leaving him completely out of the squad against Leicester.

He cited the need to be defensively sound against a good Leicester side.

Liverpool keeper Alisson, pictured in action against Crystal Palace last month, would have been relieved his howler against Leicester City didn't cost his side in their EPL match at the weekend. Obviously, I won't be stupid to make the same mistake.

"No. It's only a positive that he's that good a footballer but we have to learn to use him in the right way", he said.

"I've been impressed with Robertson's choice of pass when he's travelling forward with the ball".

Liverpool has experienced its fair share of goalkeeper errors over the last several years, and none was bigger than Loris Karius' first in last season's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

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!"

As reported on Goal, Gomez wants the shot-stopper to keep his style of play which has seen Liverpool only concede one goal in the Premier League this season.

"It sometimes happens to players shortly before the World Cup - that's always the worst moment".

"All I can do is play", Gomez told reporters.
