“Haven’t even got close to reaching top form yet” – Liverpool fans react to 2-1 win at Leicester

Liverpool carved out a difficult 2-1 victory at Leicester City on Saturday afternoon, heading into the international break with their perfect record intact.

Leicester City 1-2 Liverpool

Premier League, King Power Stadium,
September 1, 2018

Goals: Ghezzal 63′; Mane 10′, Firmino 45′

The Reds made it tough for themselves at the King Power despite going into half-time with a two-goal lead courtesy of Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Firmino netted his first of the season just before the break, but the Liverpool side to emerge for the second half was markedly different.

Though the personnel was the same, Klopp witnessed a rocky display encapsulated in a shocking error from Alisson to hand Rachid Ghezzal a deficit-reducing strike.

But Liverpool ultimately held on during a late barrage to make it 12 points from a possible 12.

Here’s how supporters saw Liverpool’s 2-1 victory on Facebook, Twitter and our forums.


Alisson’s error was the subject of widespread criticism…

“That one is on Allison. Just kick it out.”

“So I hope he has this out of his system now.”

And Liverpool’s lacklustre second-half display was questioned…

“One of those days when the simple things seem difficult.”

“This is one dire performance.”

“This second half is not the performance needed going into the game v Spurs.”

But after another three points, Reds fans were left pleased…

“The main objective was to get the 3pts. We did it despite shooting ourselves in the foot.”

Fullmetal on the forums.

“Best team lost. I hope Klopp can replay this to some of our lads and explain why they were 2nd best in every department. Only 2 decent attempts were the 2 goals. Can’t get away with this every week.”

Zahid Razzak on Facebook.

“Three points, that’s the main thing!


“We haven’t really got going yet, as there is another level or two for this team to reach as we move through the gears. But an ‘average’ start, in terms of performance level, has seen us get four wins from four.

“You would have to think we will need to improve in the games we’ve got coming up if we want to keep the winning run going”

Red over the water on the forums.


“Would have been alot more comfortable had it not been for showboating by our sodding goalkeeper. But a win is a win. Another good result and improved from last year.”
