Liverpool's Marko Grujic: 'We cannot let our heads drop ahead of Leicester return'

Grujic: 'We must not let our heads drop'

Marko Grujic insists that Liverpool can beat Leicester City at the weekend, but they need to get over the disappointment of losing to them in the EFL Cup.

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has claimed that his team are capable of getting all three points on Saturday in their Premier League clash against Leicester City, despite losing to them in the EFL Cup.

Jurgen Klopp's men were knocked out of the competition in a 2-0 defeat at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

The first half was dominated by the Reds, but they were unable to make the most of their chances and they eventually crumbled after the break by conceding goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani.

Grujic, who has played just six minutes of league action this season, has urged the team to stay positive ahead of their second trip to Leicester in a week.

"We played very well first half, created a lot of chances, but we didn't score unluckily for us," the Serbian told Liverpool's official website. "We kept trying to do the same in the second half but, again, set pieces [cost us]; a throw-in, we weren't in a good position and Leicester scored a really nice goal.

"We have to not let our heads drop and focus on Saturday - the same pitch, the same opponent - we have to concentrate on the Premier League and the other cups.

"If we play again the same way as in the first half today and be more concentrated and score some chances, we will win on Saturday. It's a good thing for us, we create a lot, but we need to concentrate and score."

Liverpool currently sit eighth in the league table, five points adrift of leaders Manchester City after five games.
