Liverpool survive Alisson howler to keep perfect start. Liverpool maintained their 100% start to the season by beating Leicester despite a comical mistake from Alisson.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring for Jurgen Klopps side after 10 minutes before Roberto Firmino doubled their lead on the brink of half-time.

Rachid Ghezzal halved the deficit on 63 minutes after Kelechi Iheanacho robbed Reds keeper Alisson in his area.

Victory means Liverpool have won their first four league games of the campaign for the first time since 1990-91.

Liverpools Egypt striker Mohamed Salah had an uncharacteristically quiet game after missing a golden opportunity early on and was replaced by Xherdan Shaqiri with 20 minutes left.

Leicester did perhaps deserve more as only a fine Joe Gomez tackle denied James Maddison early in the second period, while Demarai Gray and Wes Morgan also had chances to score.

And it was former Roma keeper Alisson, who had not conceded a goal in club football since last seasons Champions League semi-final second leg, who gifted the Foxes a way back into the game on the hour mark.

However, Klopp will be pleased with the way his backline withstood late pressure from the hosts, with Gomez impressing again at centre-back as England manager Gareth Southgate watched on.
