It just had that feeling about it all along.

Even with a full 16-day break to prepare after one of the performances of the season against Tottenham, Kopites always feared the King Power Stadium trip would prove another banana skin game.

And how that proved the case as the Reds slumped to a fifth league loss of the campaign—a fourth against a team coming into the game occupying a space in the relegation zone.

Just as after seeing off Man City and producing positive showings against Man United and Chelsea in January, the Reds followed up a big-game success with a costly slip-up against strugglers, bottling a big chance to stamp authority on the top-four race.

Gifting soft goals via the same failings and whimpering to defeat, Klopp’s side failed to deal with the pressure of being expected to carry the fight and to deliver at a time victory was paramount.

The nature of another spineless performance when under pressure to perform showed the weak mentality that is engrained in the current squad—which will continue to plague progress until it improves.
