Jurgen Klopp reveals he spoke with Salah on Egyptian FA rift

Jurgen Klopp said he expected keeper Alisson Becker to make a mistake at some point this season after the goalkeeper's howler saw Liverpool endure a nervous final few minutes during their 2-1 win at Leicester on Saturday.

Liverpool held on for the win despite being far from its best at King Power Stadium, with first-half goals by Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino doing the damage.

Retrieving a Virgil van Dijk pass, the 25-year-old dallied on the ball and was easily dispossessed by Kelechi Iheanacho, who squared for Rachid Ghezzal to reduce the deficit.

Liverpool enter the first worldwide break of the season atop the Premier League and will likely remain there, even if other sides like Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea win their respective games. "It's all fine now, and we've ticked that box as well". For me, much more interesting is how the reaction was and it was good.

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.

"I have to watch it back but I thought Joe Gomez could have cleared the situation, then Virgil for sure could have cleared it".

Mignolet, who started only in the play-off against Hoffenheim last season, was looking at Champions League group games plus domestic cup matches as opportunities for first-team football having become Alisson's reluctant deputy in the aftermath of Karius's move to Besiktas. "I made a mistake reading the play".

"I also had all the conditions to kick the ball away and tried to keep playing, keep the possession".

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.

"And he's made a difference because I think Moreno was costing them". We're not always going to have the best performances but we'll take the result every day of the week.

The defensive midfielder has only been an unused substitute on the opening weekend of the Premier League, but Klopp said he will have a part to play in Liverpool's upcoming busy period.

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