Klopp’s ‘wow’ reaction to hearing of Leicester’s dramatic fightback vs Man City

Jurgen Klopp was 'wowed' by Leicester City's dramatic fightback versus Manchester City ahead of the Foxes Premier League match with Liverpool on Tuesday evening.

Despite being 4-0 down at half-time, Brendan Rodgers' side battled back to 4-3 within 20 minutes of the restart before collapsing to lose the game 6-3 and fall to 10th in the league table.

The Northern Irishman is under increasing pressure at the King Power Stadium with Leicester having lost four of their last five matches in all competitions.

The Foxes also crashed out of the Europa League after losing 3-2 to Napoli in matchday 6 of the competition and will now play in the newly established Europa Conference League for the remainder of the season.

Despite their obvious dip in form, Reds manager Klopp was left staggered by the Foxes fightback and heaped praise on last season's FA Cup winners ahead of their Premier League showdown tomorrow night.

"Leicester are not in a good situation. They have injuries," said the Liverpool manager in his pre-match press conference.

"We went out for training when it was 4-0 and then I was told it was 4-3. Wow! They were obviously close.

"They are a good team and what Brendan is doing is exceptional."
