Jurgen Klopp insists the Reds performance against Leicester City was poor but happy with result they got against the Foxes.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claims the performance of the Reds are not up to standard but pleased with the result they got against Leicester City at Anfield.

The Reds came back from a goal down to defeat the Foxes as two own goal from Leicester’s defender Faes pushed Klopp’s side closer to the top four.

Meanwhile after the game the assessment of Klopp on their performance shows that the Reds didn’t get the rhythm right in the game.

“The result is very pleasing obviously but we all saw the game and it was not our best performance, we know that,” Klopp said. “The start in the game – conceding from a goalkick, I can’t remember a lot of goals we conceded from a goalkick, to be 100 per cent honest.

“We were just not there in that moment, we came three times too late and in the end Dewsbury-Hall is alone in front of Ali and Ali can this time not save us. So, 1-0 down against a counter-attacking side with a clear idea, yeah, absolutely the opposite of what you want to have.

“We lost the balls in the wrong moment,” Klopp added. “When we were too open, so for a long time we never got a foot in this game. Then we had our football moments and we forced then mistakes; scored a disallowed goal and then the two own goals happened.

“I think especially the second goal is brilliantly done – unlucky that it hits the post and even more unlucky for Leicester obviously that it is an own goal.”
