Klopp hails all-round Liverpool team performance

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with the all-round team performance for their 4-1 win over Leicester City.

Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino struck for Liverpool.

But Klopp said : "I love these players. [But] what about Lallana? What about Matip? I'm really on the side of the players. I really am. I'm responsible for our bad performances, they are responsible for our good performances. That's quite an easy deal.

"But I don't like too much after a game where everybody could see that we were good that we celebrate it like something really special happened. That's what I expect from us. What we did today, those are the things I expect. We have to show it and we will see how often we can show it, but why should we think about our absolute standard or negative things? This league is so strong, so unbelievably strong and competitive and you have to be there every day.

"Today we were good. Phil [Coutinho] didn't start, Divock Origi didn't come on, there were a few players injured, but it was still a good team [performance], so that's the good news but we have to show this and we have to perform. We need to have atmospheres like this, not only when it's the champions and we score four goals. What we have to do in the season [is] to create our own atmosphere for us and nobody else."
