The world's most-expensive goalkeeper was robbed on 62 minutes by Kelechi Iheanacho who crossed for Ghezzal to score and set up a tense last half an hour with Liverpool emerging as 2-1 winners.

With Liverpool 2-0 up and apparently heading for an easy win in the Premier League game, the Brazilian refused to take the easy option of just clearing his lines when put under pressure by a poor Virgil van Dijk backpass after the break. Liverpool keepers - what happens to them?

It seems that the team has enjoyed a change of philosophy and shape since the arrival of Puel, evolving from one that sits back and springs counter attacks - to an excellent football playing side, putting the ball on the floor and knocking it about with precision and goal.

Speaking on the error himself, Alisson told ESPN Brazil that while he won't change his playing style following one error, he may need to be quicker in his decision making.

That's exactly what happened at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Liverpool's £68m summer signing is known for being very capable with the ball at his feet but has admitted that dribbling should be "a last resort". That's all cool. Hopefully they all come back healthy as we have to use them all because of the number of games'.

China defends continued lending to Africa on the grounds that the continent still needs debt-funded infrastructure development. Data shows that China-Africa trade amounted to $170 billion in 2017, a 14.1 per cent increase upon the 2016 figures.

The goalkeeper made the mistake but it was the product of several small errors. But it's still early in the season, we are not 100 percent stable to do the right things constantly.

Manchester City relied on it at times last term, despite their glittering play dominating headlines.

This may perhaps be one of the only times in his career where Klopp will be thankful for the worldwide period, as he looks to rejuvenate the playing group after a couple of uncertain performances.

Ultimately, it didn't cost the Reds any points as Jurgen Klopp's men made it four wins from four to top the Premier League table.

Liverpool's vice-captain James Milner echoed his manager's sentiments on the performance.

Former England worldwide Ince was also glowing in his appraisal of Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard, who scored his sides second goal late on after Pedro had put the Blues ahead.
