Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised his side after a ‘wonderful’ 4-1 win over Premier League champions Leicester City on Saturday evening.
A brace from Roberto Firmino and goals from Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana sealed an impressive victory for the Merseyside outfit against last season’s surprise package.
With the grand unveiling of the new Anfield, complete with an increased capacity following work on the Main Stand, the Reds players showed the fans just what they are capable of.
Free-flowing football in the final third was too much for Claudio Ranieri’s men to live with, who had Jamie Vardy’s first-half strike as their only consolation on a tough away day.
Klopp’s footballing ideologies are starting to sink in at Anfield and it is clear to see that his team are playing with confidence after a progressive start to the new campaign.
The former Borussia Dortmund trainer stated that he was very pleased with the manner of his team’s performance and their comprehensive victory over the Foxes.
“It was a deserved win, we were physically strong, we were clear, we were hard, flexible, quick, creative – all that stuff,” Klopp told the club’s official website.
“We scored wonderful goals… and conceded a not-too-wonderful goal! We had a few minutes when you saw what can happen in a football game – West Ham were 2-0 up today and lost 4-2 so that sort of thing can happen, not only here.
“At half-time I told the boys ‘This is our challenge’, because when we are good we are really good.”
