Jurgen Klopp reveals what he told Alisson after his mistake in Leicester v Liverpool

Liverpool may have defeated Leicester City 2-1 on Saturday afternoon to preserve their 100% record, but it was a day to forget for Alisson Becker.

The Brazilian goalkeeper had enjoyed a near perfect start to life at Anfield.

He had been a key cog in a Liverpool side that had kept clean sheets in each of Liverpool’s opening three games.

It looked as if that would be the case again as Liverpool went into half-time against Leicester with a two goal advantage.

But disaster struck for Alisson mid-way through the second half.

Virgil van Dijk played a risky backless to Alisson, putting the former Roma goalkeeper under pressure.

And in a desperate attempt to get out of a poor situation, Alisson attempted a Cruyff turn, only to be disposed by Kelechi Iheanacho.

The Nigerian international then squared to Rachid Ghezzal, who tapped home to half the deficit.

Liverpool would hold on to earn a dramatic three points, but Klopp will understandably have been unhappy with the manner of the goal.

Klopp revealed what he told Alisson about his mistake after the game, and he actually had some positive words for the Brazilian.

Klopp said: “I said to him it’s the best game to do it in because we still won. We learn from it.”

You can’t really argue with him. It’s best for Alisson to do that when Liverpool are 2-0 up, rather in a closer game against a bigger rival.

Liverpool still won the game and, ultimately, that’s the main thing for Klopp’s side.

Klopp also revealed the message he had for his side after Alisson’s mistake.

“I told the boys we shouldn’t use him in the wrong moments,” he added. “He is not a solution for us, he is an option.”

And Klopp praised Alisson for his reaction to the mistake.

“It was a mistake from Alisson, no goalkeeper should dribble in this situation,” he said.

“His reaction to it was good. We still used him in better situations after.

“The crowd wanted to make him nervous after, but he wasn’t nervous. It needs to happen so it doesn’t happen again.”
