Benteke Goal Seals Liverpool Win Over Leicester

Liverpool grabbed a 1-0 win against league leaders Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday after a goal by substitute Christian Benteke.

Benteke’s goal in the 63rd minute turned out to be the decider in favor of the Reds. Manager Jurgen Klopp was very pleased with the win as they bounced back after suffering a 3-0 loss to newcomers Watford last weekend.

“It was deserved, I think,” Klopp told liverpoolfc.com. “We made a game which we should make in these circumstances, against this opponent, with the wind and the pressing of the opponent, and all these things.

“We played too complicated in Watford last week, we played how we in Germany say ‘in their cards’ – how they wanted us to play. Today we did much better.

“I was really pleased with what we did in the first half-hour and then we had to change. It was really difficult for Christian to come in; he didn’t warm up until then really and had to start immediately. It was difficult. It was a little bit more open.

“At halftime, we knew if we stayed concentrated we would get our chances because the players looked good and it was not too intensive for us in the first half, so we could do more in the second half.

“We made this one goal and after all the set-plays of Leicester, especially the throw-ins of Christian Fuchs, it was difficult and close and not easy to defend. But we did it with a lot of patience and that’s good, so we deserved the three points.”

Liverpool takes on Sunderland on the road on Wednesday.
