Schmeichel Warns Of Liverpool Response

Schmeichel Warns Of Liverpool Response

Goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has warned Leicester City to be wary of a revenge response from Liverpool this weekend after we dumped them out of the EFL Cup in midweek.

Having taken a two nil victory at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday evening in the third round tie, Schmeichel knows we go into this weekend's Premier League clash in good confidence, but equally Jurgen Klopp's side will be looking to give a reaction.

Speaking to as he met with the media this week ahead of the game, the Danish international explained.

'I think we can expect a reaction from Liverpool. I think it was clear to see that their manager wasn`t happy after the game, so he`ll be rallying them up. They`ll want a reaction, but we`ve got to not just match that, but outdo that. We have to make sure that Tuesday was a momentum changer for us so that we get back into that winning habit again.'

Kasper went on to say.

'Liverpool are a top side and if you look at their front line, it`s formidable. It`s very fluid and fast. It`s enjoyable to play against them because you want to be playing against the best and testing yourself all the time against the best. We`ve had some really good results against Liverpool, so we`re hoping that can continue.'

What was key for Schmeichel was that we began the second clash against Liverpool with the same intensity that we showed after the half time break in the Cup game.

'We needed a good team talk from the manager at half-time and he got a response. I thought in the second half we were absolutely brilliant. We came out at them very early and set our stall out the way we should probably have started the game. We scored a couple of great goals and in the end it was very, very pleasing. Shinji is an energetic player and he`s a dream to play with.'


'You know what you`re going to get from him every single game. He`s going to give absolutely everything. He came on and changed the game. The whole momentum of the game shifted and the atmosphere in the crowd changed. Everything suddenly started going our way, so huge credit to his contribution to that game.'
