“We are not worried about it,” he said. We had a great start. We were beaten by a better team. “Everyone talked about Liverpool’s injuries and it was the story that led the game but it’s still a high level team with players at the front of the pitch who can hurt you.

With the dismissal of Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Fabinho went to the center of defense with Joel Mattip, while James Milner started right-back due to Alexander-Arnold’s calf injury.
Rogers said it was still Liverpool’s strongest defense, as Klopp’s side held their fourth clean sheet in seven games in all competitions.
“I don’t really see it as a tight backline,” he said. “I know he’s not missing Virgil van Dijk, but Matip is a top defender, Fabinho is full, he played there against Chelsea and against top players.
“Andy Robertson has always played, Allison is the number one goalkeeper and James Milner plays so he does a great job. I don’t go with this narrative, they are still very strong with the top players.
“You look at his midfield, the player who has always played. He’s just a great team, super organized, plays really hard with quality and was a better team.”
After Johnny Evans’ own goal in the 21st minute, Diego Jotta and Roberto Firmino scored for Liverpool, resulting in fourth place in the Leicester table – two points for Spurs and Klopp’s men.
