Klopp: We deserved win over Leicester.

Klopp happy with how his players performed.

Jurgen Klopp praised his Liverpool players after their 2-1 win over Leicester on Saturday.

The German expressed his delight at how his Reds sealed three points at the King Power stadium. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino gave the away side the lead before a mistake from Alisson put the Foxes back in the game but a comeback never materialised for them.

"I think it was a deserved win, we had a brilliant start to the game," he said, Sky Sports reported. "We played really good football and attacked them in the right way - we were there in half-spaces and were flexible. We created chances, big chances.

"It got a bit more difficult as the pitch got drier - we should not be influenced by that, but we were today to be honest - and then we scored the second before the half-time whistle, which is of course good.

"But it was clear this game was not decided and we had to do better in the second half, and we did not. We controlled the game a bit deeper, we had the counter-attacks and did not finish them off.

"We gave a goal away and that keeps the game exciting till the end. But I am completely happy - if winning away games in the Premier League would be easy, everybody would be doing it constantly."

He added: "If somebody had told me four weeks ago that you will have 12 points from four games, then I would buy it.

"Having 12 points and knowing you can and must improve, is good."
