Fans on song, but Klopp prefers to stay focused

I'm not interested in setting standards until we have reached the final standard. But we have to show this and we have to perform.

"We knew we had to do the job today and that is what we did", Klopp said. "When the Kop started singing it (Leicester) were alone in front of Simon Mignolet. It would be really nice if they could stop this". "It is nice but not necessary". I know it doesn't sound too smart, but sorry.

But Leicester were given hope when Lucas inexplicably passed the ball to Jamie Vardy to shoot into an empty net.

But Adam Lallana's fine strike restored Liverpool's two-goal advantage and Firmino's late effort wrapped up a worrying defeat for Leicester, who have won only one of their first four matches.

Mane is now one of the first names on the team sheet and offers some frightening pace to a Liverpool unit that was sorely lacking it last season.

"It's like celebrating a penalty before you have scored!"

'I wanted to say this, because (at the time) nobody could understand me.

"We were strong physically, flexible, quick, creative". What we did today, those are the things I expect.

Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group, were in town to visit the new and improved Anfield, which now houses just over 54,000 following the work done to the Main Stand.

Numerous Liverpool greats were introduced to supporters before the game and the current side responded in style.

Like all players, he'll have off games, but that's when Klopp needs to show that he has faith in Sturridge. "We were here Thursday night for training".

Liverpool dazzled offensively as they beat Arsenal 4-3 in their season opener, and while they have lacked consistency under Juergen Klopp, they reaffirmed their class going forward in a vibrant display that exposed the champions' limitations.

"We were in the first half until we conceded the goal".

Ranieri attempted to remain positive, however, after another disappointing outing. We were waiting for this type of football, very aggressive. They played well. We weren't at our best, but a lot of credit goes to Liverpool because they were very expansive.
