However, after the Brazilian was replaced at half time, the Foxes seized the initiative and sealed victory with goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani.

Indeed, the Reds seem so geared towards attacking football under Klopp that often they forget about their defensive duties. I can say it one time or 1,000 so it's not nice to concede these goals. Nevertheless, last season Lester, who played in the Champions League, the first half of the Premier League failed on all counts, but already in the second part corrected the situation and finished among the middle peasants. The goals we conceded are a second ball from a corner and a throw in again.

The visitors were heavily rotated but still strong, taking on a Leicester side without a win in their last three games, but the Reds were ultimately made to pay for their profligacy.

"I see it, but unfortunately it doesn't feel it at the moment because we exited a cup competition".

Although Leicester lost Ulloa in the opening minutes of the second half to a head injury, his replacement came up with the opening goal. Everyone can imagine we know how to defend them but obviously we don't do it, because always somebody else is doing it. "That's sometimes okay but then you need to stay concentrated until the end and at least you don't allow them to score. and yeah, they scored too easy", he added.

"We wanted to go to the next round".

After Liverpool got dumped out of the League Cup by Leicester City on Tuesday, questions were asked about about Klopp elected to remove Philippe Coutinho - arguably Liverpool's most risky in the first 45 minutes - at halftime. He played different positions and that is all highest quality; if you can play in the Premier League on different positions it says a lot about you. The only thing you can do is to push up; we didn't.

The German has confirmed that Danny Ward, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and fellow midfielder Marko Grujic will be all handed a starting spot in the side.
