Liverpool are the best team in England. Liverpool go to play the second best team in England. Liverpool win 4-0.

We’re that good.

Though most of the goals came late, Liverpool were the better side by a wide margin throughout the 90 minutes at the King Power Stadium. They couldn’t live with the Reds. The gap is just too much. Liverpool are simply a far better football team than Leicester and that’s all there is to it.

Jürgen Klopp was, of course, delighted.

“I am happy about that”, the Liverpool manager told BBC Sport. I appreciate it because I do not take it for granted and the boys have to do it every three days. We had big chances at the start of the game, did not score with them but stayed in the game and controlled it.

”It is was difficult for Leicester to get into the game, both teams felt the intensity of the season but we controlled it more and maybe Leicester were not as aggressive, maybe because of us and our positioning. We scored a first goal, super, super, cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino can score from that situation.

”We struggled a bit with their build-up in the second half and we won the balls immediately and then scored the second goal, then the boys were flying. It looked really nice.

”1-0 is not even a result, it was a moment and it could have been difficult when they had set-piece but that is OK, I don’t expect a game like this to have a free run because they have so much quality and the season Leicester have had. We were very concentrated and the goals were absolutely nice and an important day for us.”

Liverpool are going to win the league. It’s never looked better than this. Drink it in.
