Klopp backs Alisson to rebound against Leicester after mistakes against Man City

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is not dwelling on Alisson Becker's mistakes against Manchester City ahead of the Leicester City tie. 

Liverpool suffered a 4-1 loss in the hands of City last season with Becker making two errors that led directly to goals. It became the biggest talking point after the game and ahead of Leicester's encounter, Klopp seemed not to dwell on the past. 

"Oh we had, of course, a little talk. If it’s then about encouragement or whatever, I don’t know. It’s just a little talk and he was not happy that it happened, of course," said Klopp. 

"But it’s very important to realize in a moment like this, goalkeepers in a long career, they make mistakes. For a goalkeeper of the quality of Alisson Becker, it’s pretty rare that he makes this kind of mistake and that he makes two of them in one game, that’s clear as well."

"But on top of that, goalkeepers are used to making mistakes. It means they have to stay in the game, they concede a goal and they know maybe earlier than all the rest of the world, ‘I should have saved it."

The Reds will travel to King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City today starting from 3:30 PM EAT.
