Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has challenged his side to prove they can compete against the best sides on a consistent basis following their 4-1 win over Leicester City at Anfield.

Klopp’s men were on top form in their win over the reigning Premier League champions and they opened the scoring through Brazilian Roberto Firmino.

Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana scored either side of a Jamie Vardy strike for Leicester, before Firmino scored again to wrap up an impressive victory.

The Reds, 13.00 to win the Premier League title, had failed to kick on since their opening day win over Arsenal and Klopp insists they need to string performances together.

They were beaten 2-0 by Burnley and drew 1-1 with Tottenham and Klopp believes they need to work harder despite their recent convincing win.

He told reporters: “We knew we had to do the job today and that is what we did. “We were strong physically, flexible, quick, creative.

We scored wonderful goals and conceded a not-too-wonderful goal and had a few minutes where you saw what can happen in a football game. “At half-time, I told the boys, ‘This is our challenge’.

When we are good, we are really good but when we had some problems, it is not easy. “This is the challenge for the whole season.

We had a minimum 30 to 35 minutes at Arsenal which I didn’t see until then from us in the movements, which were so strong and clear.”
