LIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Sep 11 – Liverpool were a class apart in their 4-1 victory over Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday and manager Jurgen Klopp has asked for more of the same going forward.

Roberto Firmino scored the first and fourth goals with Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana also getting their names on the scores sheets.

Irrespective of Lucas Leiva’s error just before half time, which resulted in Jamie Vardy’s goal to make the score 2-1, the Reds played some scintillating football throughout.

“We knew we had to do the job today and that is what we did,” Klopp told reporters after the match.

“We were strong physically, flexible, quick, creative. We scored wonderful goals and conceded a not-too-wonderful goal and had a few minutes where you saw what can happen in a football game.

“At half-time I told the boys ‘This is our challenge’. When we are good, we are really good but when we had some problems it is not easy.

“This is the challenge for the whole season. We had a minimum 30 to 35 minutes at Arsenal which I didn’t see until then from us in the movements, which were so strong and clear.

Leicester are really difficult to play. They are so tuned and apart from one player they played with champions so everything is clear.

“We were not tuned. We had to change in a very decisive position yesterday. We had to bring in Lucas (for Dejan Lovren, who sustained bruised eye in training); a great player but the most difficult game for a centre-half, especially when you don’t play it 500 times in a row.”
