Despite being led by Leicester City, Liverpool still got 3 points according to an impossible scenario when midfielder Wout Faes from the Foxes had 2 home goals.
In the first phase, Faes did not have enough contact with goalkeeper Daniel Ward. So he made a save that surprised his teammates.
And in the situation that helped Liverpool take the lead, the 24-year-old midfielder fumbled to break the ball into the net after a shot that sent the ball to the post from Darwin Nunez.
However, Virgil van Dijk still expressed dissatisfaction when Liverpool performed poorly. They really played with a lack of concentration in the early minutes of the game and Van Dijk personally was also quite superficial in the phase with Patson Daka, from which Leicester City created an exemplary counter-attack that led to the opening goal.
“Sometimes I think we are very bad today but as cliché as it may sound, winning in these types of matches is important so that’s a positive thing. Now we have to improve our weaknesses to prepare for the match against Brentford,” Van Dijk said.
