Virgil van Dijk's poor backpass put the keeper under pressure, but the South American still had plenty of time to clear the ball and yet, unwittingly chose to dribble Kelechi Iheanacho. I'm a player that always like to be on the ball. "I think that's okay and something to build on".

"We've got a few big games when we come back but I think all the lads are just excited to go away with their worldwide teams now and some get a break and we'll come back and we've obviously got a big game against Tottenham". I've got great people around me like Virgil and the whole team to learn from and keep developing. "I've been injured since January; that's been hard, but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has helped me as we've been doing rehab together, and the manager has integrated me with the first team even though I've been injured".

"Hopefully we'll both score plenty of goals. Now we will keep this (in mind) for the away game", he said.

Meanwhile, Gomez has backed new signing Alisson to carry on being confident with the ball at his feet, despite an error against Leicester.

Jurgen Klopp's men have only conceded once in their first four games while scoring nine goals and Shearer believes they are the real deal. For us, it was the best moment because it gave him the opportunity to start preseason with us and it's a benefit of that.

'In the moment, we are obviously not stable enough to do it over 90 minutes, but that's what we are working for and that's what we want to do, of course, so it's all fine.

In this kind of play, here in the Premier League, not every collision is a foul.

"Having 12 points and knowing you can improve is good". "To be 100 per cent honest I am really happy it happened, because we don't have to wait for it now". These could be valuable points come the end of the season.

"We have come through the period where it looked like we didn't need all of them because we played quite a consistent line-up and the level in training was high".

"It's going to happen though, we're bound to concede goals but the main thing is the reaction".

The Reds' run of three successive clean sheets was halted following a mistake by Alisson in the second half.
