Our Defense Still Needs Fixing Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool's defensive work needs fixing after his side beat Leicester 2-1 to win the Premier League Asia Trophy on Saturday. Liverpool had to come from behind to win in Hong Kong as Islam Slimani headed home for the Foxes in the 12th minute.

Goals from Mo Salah and a stunning strike from Philippe Coutinho saw Liverpool secure the victory, and while Klopp was pleased with the result, he acknowledged that his side need to improve defensively.
He said “Two games, two wins so that's of course the best thing, you can see it was difficult again and it was not 100 per cent of our physical ability. Players like Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy, they cause you problems so we're a little bit too late in the mind because the legs are tired. I thought we could have defended the first goal seven times already, but in the end it is a cross and a free header so it's not nice but it's what happens. We came back and even before the good goal, we were already the dominant side and playing good football so it was all OK.
I liked everything I saw but that [defensive work] is something we need to fix 100 per cent. I know it is pre-season and we can change it but it is something I don't like already so we need to work on it.”
