Klopp urges Liverpool fans to focus on players

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has urged fans to focus on the players after victory over Leicester City.

Klopp wanted the players to take the credit and explained why he reacted so angrily when the Kop began to sing his name in the second half.

"Please don't sing my name before the game is decided," he said. "When the Kop started singing it (Leicester) were alone in front of Simon Mignolet.

"I don't play. It was the same at Arsenal. It is nice but not necessary.

"I am really on the side of the players. I am responsible for our bad performances, they are responsible for the good performances.

"That is an easy deal. That is what I expect from us, what we did today."
