Mane and Firmino spare Alisson’s blushes after Liverpool goalkeeper’s howler

first_img 4 4 Leicester started the second half brightly as James Maddison wriggled through the Liverpool defence only to have his shot blocked at the last moment by a sprawling Joe Gomez.In the 58th minute, Jurgen Klopp watched on in despair as his star man Salah wasted a four-on-two opportunity and five minutes later the side were made to pay.Under pressure from the Foxes’ forwards, Virgil van Dijk played a poor pass back to Alisson who opted to try and take Kelechi Iheanacho on with his feet before losing the ball and conceding as a result.The £67m goalkeeper was left with egg on his face as Iheanacho robbed him of possession and picked out Rachid Ghezzal who finished to put his side back in the game.However, Liverpool held on to secure the three points and maintain their 100% record at the start of the new Premier League season with four wins from four matches. Liverpool survived a goalkeeping shocker from Alisson and maintained their 100% record in the Premier League with a 2-1 win at Leicester on Saturday.The Reds ultimately emerged victorious at the King Power Stadium as goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino rendered their ‘keeper’s second half mistake irrelevant. Roberto Firmino doubled Liverpool’s lead in the 45th minute STAR MAN: Sadio ManeOnce again Mane stole the show for Liverpool in what was a rare underwhelming display from Mohamed Salah. The Senegal international netted his fourth of the season early on and was the constant in his team’s attacking threat.MOMENT OF THE MATCH:While it ultimately didn’t prove crucial, Alisson’s mistake will still be the major talking point from today’s game. When you spend £62m to replace an error-prone goalkeeper, the last thing you want to see is your new signing dilly-dallying on the ball, being tackled and then costing you a goal.MATCH STATS: LINE-UPS:Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino.Subs: Mignolet, Keita, Sturridge, Moreno, Lallana, Shaqiri, Matip.Leicester XI: Schmeichel, Ricardo, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell, Albrighton, Mendy, Ndidi, Ghezzal, Maddison, Gray.Subs: Ward, Fuchs, Evans, Amartey, Iborra, Okazaki, Iheanacho.center_img 4 Jurgen Klopp’s men stormed out of the blocks in the first half as Roberto Firmino forced a save out of Kasper Schmeichel within four minutes before Mo Salah surprisingly put his rebound effort wide.It didn’t take long for the Reds’ attack to put things right as Salah fed Andrew Robertson down the left just six minutes later. The Scottish defender pulled the ball back to Sadio Mane who lashed his side ahead from close range.The Reds controlled much of the remainder of the half and doubled their advantage seconds before the break as Roberto Firmino nodded in a simple header from a James Milner corner.
