Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has told goalkeeper Allison Becker he must learn from his mistake in the 2-1 win over Leicester.
The £65million summer signing was guilty of trying to overplay from a backpass from Virgil van Dijk and was caught out when Kelechi Iheanacho robbed him of the ball and rolled it to Rachid Ghezzal to score.
The Reds were already 2-0 up thanks to first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino and just about held on for another win to make it a maximum four out of four at the start of the season.
Klopp was not happy with the sloppy defending at the King Power Stadium and says it is something to learn from.
He told Sky Sports: “We all have to learn from that. It was clear last week it would happen. I didn’t think it would happen during the next match.
“We could have cleared the situation twice before and then we gave the ball back to them, but he could have cleared it away.
“He knows it, it was his mistake. We need to get used to it. We constantly get the ball to the keeper but the player needs to learn there are other solutions. Joe (Gomez) could have cleared the ball, Alisson could have too.
“That is how it is. He is a fantastic goalkeeper, and makes some fantastic saves. He didn’t do what he was supposed to but it’s all good. I told him that it was the best game to do it (the mistake) because we won it.
“It’s all fine now, but we should not always play all the balls to Alisson. I like how cool he was afterwards when the crowd tried to make him nervous, but we could still use him.”
