Having two draws and two defeats in their previous four matches, Liverpool finally broke the spell and picked up all three points against Leicester City, leaving their manager ‘in love’ with their fighting spirit.
I loved how we fought for the result. It could have been more clear, but after a few games without a win you have to fight back
Jurgen Klopp told reporters after Liverpool’s 3-2 at King Power Stadium, a result in which Simon Mignolet played a major role in, saving Jamie Vardy’s penalty in the 73rd minute, with the score already at 2-3.
As a goalkeeper if you save it you make a very good day of it. He did it again, so that’s good
the German manager said about his Belgian goalkeeper, who has now saved seven of the 15 penalties he had to deal with ever since he moved to England.
I said before the game to the boys ‘we are not the Harlem Globetrotters. We don’t go out to try to play beautiful football. We are here for results, so we play for results
Klopp also said, relieved to have seen his team finally win a game.
