  1. Post update

    So it was a case of job done for Liverpool as they leave Leicester with all three points.

    That's all from me today, but make sure you check out Phil McNulty's match report here.

  2. Leicester's owner making a quick getaway

    Familiar sight at Leicester City's King Power Stadium - a large blue and white helicopter has landed on the centre circle in readiness for their Thai owners' departure.

    They will be disappointed by the defeat against Liverpool but you suspect they saw enough spirit and endeavour, even without suspended main striker Jamie Vardy, to give them encouragement as they prepare for take-off.

  3. 'Salah, Firmino and I need time'

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool goalscorer Sadio Mane speaking to BBC Match of the Day:

    On his goal: I am very happy to score goals, but more important is the three points we got. It was not our best game but our attitude made the big difference we struggled but pushed as a team.

    On Salah and Firmino's dip in form: I think it is too early to speak about that, we had 10-15 days preseason so we need a few more weeks to get our best. Even me, all three we will try to work hard and get better and better.

    On the performance: We have improved a lot, and still have something to prove,. Even when not at our best we’re going to try, take it game by game and try to win everything in the season.

  4. 'Gomez stopped Gray well'

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    More from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp:

    On their start to the season: 12 points, if someone told me that at the start of the season with fewer goals conceded it is a little better. The boys go to their international teams, they will hopefully all come back fit to Liverpool then we play the rest of the season.

    How good was Joe Gomez?: He was good, the plan was clear with Demarai Gray as a 9 to use his speed but Joe and Virgil (Van Dijk) are not too slow so it was not a good advantage for them. And they played football. The moment we were heading the high ball somewhere not to our man we looked lost.

    Cameron: Why is everyone saying Alisson is all of a sudden an expensive Karius? Yes, he made a mistake, but he didn't fumble the ball or do anything that can't be stopped by Klopp telling him to be less adventurous in the future, personally, I'm still happy with our number 1.

    The Red Devil: I'm a United fan and I can't believe the negative comments about Liverpool's win. You just won at one of the hardest grounds in the league, we have just one win from four games there, yet you ground home a win, one of your main problems in recent years. Be confident!

  6. 'Alisson knows what he did wrong'

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaking to Sky Sports:

    On Alisson's mistake: I thought it would happen. I didn’t think it would happen during the next match. He knows it, 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, makes some fantastic saves. He didn’t do what he was supposed to but it's all good.

    On their performance: We could have scored earlier in the game, I said a few times in the past a dry pitch mean not good football, Leicester wanted to be aggressive but couldn’t because we moved so well. The moment the pitch got dry we needed too long to get used to it. Second half we have to control with the ball, we did that without the ball by dropping deeper. We were in a few situations a little lucky, but think we deserved to win.

    Imran Sheikh: A hard earned victory for @LFC today against a dogged opponent. Four wins in a row but still can play better.

    Christian Evans: Playing badly and winning, isn't that supposed to be a mark of champions?

    Himanshu Singh: Joe Gomez is massive for his age. Versatile. Clear. No Nonsense.

  8. 'We've got a disappointed dressing room'

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    Leicester City

    Leicester midfielder James Maddison, speaking to Sky Sports:

    We deserved more than no points. We've got a disappointed dressing room. We had Liverpool right where we wanted them.

    They weren't exactly brilliant Liverpool goals. We re-grouped at half-time and i think we showed exactly what we're about as Leicester City in the second half.

    Our senior players and manager rallied us up at half-time. We were still in the game and we came out with the right attitude.

    There are a lot of positives to take. There is a good feeling around the club at the moment. We've shown we're more than capable of matching the big sides, we just need to turn our performances into points.

    JP: Last year's Liverpool would have drawn or lost this game. Van Dijk and Gomez are solid. Not Salah's day, looked tired and lacking confidence. Must be the shoulder tap from Ramos..

    David Robinson: Terrible performance. Somehow got 3 points. Leicester were good but Liverpool were so sloppy. Need to improve massively performance wise in this next month. Allison, please let that be your one mistake this season.

  11. 'It is encouraging'

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    Leicester City

    Leicester manager Claude Puel, speaking to Sky Sports:

    I'm disappointed for my players because they gave their best. The second half was fantastic, we showed good quality and had a lot of chances.

    We continued to attack, it was a shame to concede the second goal just before half-time. It was difficult to come back after that.

    My players played well, we corrected some aspects in our play in the second half to push Liverpool. I am happy about our game, we showed our quality.

    I think we had the chances to come back, and to have a draw. I think we deserved that. I have a young team, young players, they will learn.

    We had good tempo, good aggression. We played with confidence and we had the chances to come back. It is encouraging.

  12. 'More to come from Liverpool'

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool midfielder James Milner speaking to Sky Sports:

    How big was the result?: Massive, it wasn't a good performance in most aspects, pressing defending, it was tough work. Not taking anything away from Leicester they are tough. Sometimes in the Premier League you have got to win ugly and we did that. Hopefully after international break we can come back if everyone if fit and improve on things.

    On Liverpool's start to the season: We are in as good a position as we can be after four games, won them all. But it is a long season, a lot more to improve. I'm pleased with how we have defended, but more to come from this team. It is early days, no one has hit top gear.

    Steven Jerjian: 4 wins from 1 excellent and 3 largely average performances is good news for #LFC, but definite improvement needed before the big games after the international break.

    Hasan Anfield: Every time I watch Andrew Robertson he's getting better and better.

    Dan Graham: What a blunder by Allison, what a waste of money. Right, I’m off to watch videos of De Gea’s first six months at United.

  14. Liverpool survive to maintain momentum

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer at The King Power Stadium

    Tough slog for Liverpool that one - a performance that was mediocre for long periods and with an absolute horror moment from their new £67m goalkeeper Alisson.

    And yet they have come out of it with four wins out of four in the Premier League to maintain that outstanding start to the season.

    What is the old saying? Champions needs to get results when not at their best. This certainly applied here.

  15. 'Liverpool get over the line'

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    Dion Dublin

    Ex-Aston Villa striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    Liverpool are looking good. Away from home at the King Power stadium it can be difficult. 2-1 win, not convincing in the second half but the work had been done. The were hanging on in periods but overall nicked it.

    If they want to win trophies, the Premier League, got to get over the line with OK performances.

    Jurgen Klopp
  16. Post update

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    There is no doubt what the talking point from that game will be.

    Alisson, if you happen to read this, don't watch Match of the Day tonight...

  17. FULL-TIME

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    The whistle goes. It's four wins from four for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side.

    Liverpool had to really fight to hold onto their lead and Leicester arguably deserved a point, but the Reds extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

    Roberto Firmino
  18. Post update

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    It's Schmeichel who goes up for the header but Virgil van Dijk jumps higher and clears.

    Could that be Leicester's chance gone?

  19. YELLOW CARD

    Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

    James Milner is shown a yellow card for a late tackle on Ricardo Pereira.

    Leicester have a free-kick in a dangerous position. It goes out for a corner and Kasper Schmeichel has gone up for this one.

    Peter Shields: I'm a Newcastle fan but I have to agree with all the shouts for Maddison for England - he is a great young player - I would love to see him and Foden included in Southgate's plans

    Dan Washbourne: Alisson's gift aside, Leicester haven't really threatened all that much. Certainly made the second half more interesting!
