The Brazilian was caught out trying to do a ‘Cryuff turn’ after controlling Virgil van Dijk’s back-pass and lost the ball to Foxes substitute Kelechi Iheanacho, who crossed for Rachid Ghezzal to make it 2-1 to the Reds.
Thankfully for Liverpool, first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino had given them a two-goal cushion and the Premier League leaders were able to retain their 100 per cent start, which is their best since 1990/91.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp actually admitted he was relieved Alisson’s mistake happened now as he is convinced it won’t occur again.
Alisson believes he has learned his lesson, saying: ‚ÄúI will not be arrogant to say ‚ÄėI‚Äôll keep doing [dribbles]‚Äô. It was a mistake.
‚ÄúOf course I will not be stupid to make the same mistake. We have to learn from the mistakes, but it‚Äôs part of my game. If necessary, the dribble will be my last resort.‚ÄĚ
The former Roma shotstopper revealed words had been exchanged about the back pass from Van Dijk.
‚ÄúI talked to Virg [Van Dijk] ‚Äď it was not such a good pass, but I was also totally able to kick the ball away,‚ÄĚ he added.
Klopp is convinced the blunder won’t affect Alisson in the future. ‚ÄúWe don‚Äôt have to make much [of it]. I‚Äôm pretty sure he isn’t the type to be influenced,‚ÄĚ said the Anfield chief.
‚ÄúYou need a lot of things to do the things he‚Äôs doing and one of those is confidence. You can‚Äôt take back mistakes but the reaction is always important. I was completely fine by that.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs zero per cent arrogant but he‚Äôs confident and he can do it.‚ÄĚ
Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel believes Alisson’s error is symptomatic of Liverpool’s adventurous style of play.
‚ÄúThe style Liverpool play, without knowing it exactly, I think they encourage the ‘keeper to take chances to keep possession, like Ederson does for Manchester City,‚ÄĚ said Schmeichel, who made his 300th appearance for the Foxes at the weekend.
‚ÄúThey encourage them and when you do that, you have to accept mistakes are sometimes made ‚Äď just as with outfield players.
‚ÄúThe only difference with goalkeepers is when a mistake is made, nine-and-a-half times out of 10 it gets punished.‚ÄĚ
Schmeichel also wants team-mate Harry Maguire to follow him and sign a new contract after the England defender was linked with a ¬£60m move to Manchester United in the summer following his excellent performances in the World Cup.
‚ÄúI hope Harry signs but I don‚Äôt want to put pressure on anyone. It is up to him, his family and his situation,‚ÄĚ said Schmeichel.
‚ÄúIf he feels it is something he wants to do then we would be delighted, but it is up to him.‚ÄĚ
Liverpool defender Joe Gomez missed out on the World Cup through injury, but his display at King Power Stadium suggested he is worthy of his return to the squad for the Uefa Nations League opener against Spain at Wembley this Saturday, and the friendly against Switzerland in Leicester three days later.
Klopp believes the 21-year-old is as good as anyone playing for the Three Lions.
‚ÄúHow he plays at the moment there‚Äôs no doubt he should be in that group,‚ÄĚ said the German.
‚ÄúHe has all that you need as a defender. He is a young boy and has already had a lot of games. It‚Äôs all good.‚ÄĚ
