Liverpool boss Klopp: We'll be better for tough Leicester win

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes they will better for a tough win at Leicester City.

The Reds have been far from their brilliant best in the Premier League this season but have maintained a 100 per cent record regardless.

"To build a team over a season you need, in an ideal world, these common experiences. In an ideal world, with getting three points in a difficult game," Klopp told Liverpool's official website.

"If you are flying constantly, you are not prepared for the difficult moments - you cannot be prepared - so we are.

"We know that and I told the boys immediately after the game in the dressing room that if winning away games in the Premier League would be so easy, then everybody would do it constantly.

"It's difficult, it's really difficult, and to do it in the way we did it - yes, we caused ourselves problems, yes, we could've done better, but in the moments we did what we actually wanted to do, we were really strong.

"In the moment, we are obviously not stable enough to do it over 90 minutes, but that's what we are working for and that's what we want to do, of course, so it's all fine.

"You can always make a criticism, like a detail here or there, but then at the end if you do that and you could change all these things then it's 8-0 or something. That's not how life is, that's not how football is. 2-1, fantastic result."
