Leicester 1-2 Liverpool: Reds best start to a Premier League campaign

The £65million ($84m) new-boy was caught out during the Reds' 2-1 win over Leicester City on Saturday, tackled by Kelechi Iheanacho after delaying over a backpass, allowing Rachid Ghezzal to score for the Foxes.

First-half goals by Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino ultimately proved more important than Alisson's ill-advised fancy footwork.

That victory at the King Power Stadium was preceded by a tight 1-0 home success over Brighton and Hove Albion and a resilient 2-0 win against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

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.

"He's not going to have to buy me a auto or anything if I win", Ings said.

With and without possession we were really effective and I think if we approach matches like that going forward, particularly at home, we'll get the results that we deserve.

The global break looms for numerous players in this match.

They now sit top of the Premier League on maximum points, yet the biggest talking point to come from the King Power Stadium was Alisson's costly mistake.


That means, pass the ball in the right moment, then immediately make another offer for him, open some passing options.

He said that maybe he'll start watching them more often! I didn't get a very good pass.

"I am angry that I made a mistake that put the team in a hard situation", the Brazil global admitted.

This isn't sour grapes or anything, but I really think a draw would have been the fairest result given how the game played out. I've just got to move on and I'm happy to be back in the squad.

"We have to learn from our mistakes".

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

"We don't need to play all the balls back to Alisson, but he showed how cool he was after that when the crowd was trying to make him nervous".

Not only have Liverpool won all four of their Premier League matches thus far, they also boast the best goal difference in the division meaning they top the table ahead of Chelsea and Watford.
