Premier LeagueMatch report: Liverpool 4 Leicester City 1

The extrovert German was seen remonstrating with home fans at one point in the second half of Saturday's match as they chanted his name in appreciation of a memorable inauguration of a new main stand which has raised the capacity at Anfield to 55,000. "When the Kop started singing it, [Leicester] were alone in front of Simon [Mignolet]".

Less than a month into the defence of their Premier League title, and Leicester City already lost twice.

Having reacted angrily when chants of his name went up around a revamped Anfield, Klopp later explained to reporters that he wants fans' affection reserved exclusively for his playing squad in times of need.

"Yes, I am in a good way, but you have to work".

"I'm just pleased, because it is a great compliment to be compared to the legendary players".

"What can I say?"

He added: "It's our job to prove we're as strong as I think we are". We weren't at our best all over the pitch.

- Liverpool have won more games against reigning Premier League champions than any other side has (20).

Klopp revealed he had brought his players to the redeveloped stadium on Thursday for a training session to help them acclimatise to their new surroundings. We havnt turned bad overnight.

It was another inspired display from the speedster in what was an authoritative team showing; Claudio Ranieri conceding Liverpool had been superior in every department. It's a second loss for the Foxes this season, a stark departure from losing just three games all through last season. One of our strengths last season was, when we lost a match, we had a very good reaction.

"We were waiting for this kind of football".

Firmino (two), Mane and Adam Lallana scored the hosts' goals and they were only briefly troubled when stand-in centre-back Lucas Leiva panicked on the ball and inexplicably passed to the unmarked Jamie Vardy six yards out.

The win was Liverpool's first in the league since the opening day against Arsenal, and the challenge now is to maintain consistency, something they have failed to achieve under Klopp.
