Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that he believes his side deserved their win over Leicester City.
The German saw his side come under some intense pressure, especially in the second half, during the Premier League game – but they managed to see off the threat to win 2-1.
Goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino had given the Reds a 2-0 lead at the interval, which many will have felt was harsh on the hosts, but did not add to that after the break.
A clanger from goalkeeper Alisson Becker allowed Rachid Ghezzal to halve the deficit for his new club – but they could not snatch a second to earn a point, which they feel they were well worth of.
But Klopp would disagree and believes that his Liverpool side were worthy winners based on the balance of play in the Saturday lunchtime match.
“We could have scored earlier in the game.” he told Sky Sports.
“I said a few times in the past a dry pitch means not good football.
“Leicester wanted to be aggressive but couldn’t because we moved so well.
“We were in a few situations a little lucky, but think we deserved to win.” he finished.
Whether or not he is right matters little, Liverpool won the game and the points came back to Anfield with the squad ahead of the international break.
