Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare knows his side were fortunate not too be down at half-time in their third round Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool.

With the club having only won one major trophy over the past decade, Sherwood said Liverpool should be taking cup competitions more seriously.

By allowing Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani to breach their defence in the second half at the King Power Stadium, Liverpool have now leaked 10 goals in their last four games.

The visitors dominated the game in the first half against Leicester, but they could not maintain their dominance in the second half following the Brazilian star's substitution. 87 SHOTS. 3 goals have been scored from them and 10 conceded at the other end.

"It's easy to explain".

"You can not play football and let this Leicester team somehow survive in the game because we are not clinical enough".

'From today's perspective yes, we have the resources, but we will see how it is again in January'. I'm sick of goals like this. You change two or three players...

Klopp considers his team had several times been careless and unable to anticipate Leicester City's attacks. "He needs match time but it was not the plan to let him play again 60 or 70 or 80 minutes", said Klopp.

"It was clear that 45 is the limit, we need to make him fit but we can not push him through".

No player who is involved is involved because I hope we go out of this competition. "The game changes in moments like this - you have the chance to do it by yourself or sometimes you are on the wrong side".

"That we conceded (goals) like this makes me really, really sick", he said.

"You worry about your own team's performance and we asked them to be more aggressive in the second half".

Former Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer has blamed the worldwide break coming at the wrong time for the Reds' slump in form, after the Merseyside giants were knocked out of the EFL Cup following a 2-0 loss at Leicester City.

"You just feel the global break had come at the wrong time".
