We'll make sure Jurgen Klopp gets all your suggestions to help keep his glasses on his face.

If Liverpool keep scoring at this rate he's going to need to take a full-time optometrist on the Reds' coaching staff.

It's been a good evening for Liverpool, not so much for Leicester.

Thanks for your company and getting involved - read the match report here and stay tuned for more reaction.

So there you have it, as many options as Jurgen could ever need to keep those pesky glasses on his head while celebrating. Let's just hope he follows the BBC Sport live pages...

Leicester's next game? Away at Club Brugge in the Champions League.

It's a brave new world for the Foxes.

'We have to clear our minds'

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri: "Liverpool played well and deserved to win. We started well, but after the first goal we lost our shape a little.

"We tried in the second half, but everything Liverpool tried came good. We created chances, but were a little unlucky.

"We have to clear our minds for the next match. When we have lost in the past, we have always had a good reaction." 

'Lucas wasn't really ready for 90 minutes'

More from Jurgen Klopp speaking to BT Sport.

On Lucas playing at centre-half: "We had to throw him in cold water, he wasn’t really ready for 90 minutes, the plan was he would be on the bench but after training we knew he would have to play. Especially against Jamie Vardy, with his over the shoulder game, it is very difficult to play."

On the new Main Stand at Anfield: "It’s a wonderful place to play, the old Anfield was also but it was time to give more people the opportunity to watch our games. I’m happy they can do this. The noise can change games in both directions, it was wonderful that they could."

Liverpool 4-1 Leicester City

I joked to a colleague that Lucas should get man of the match for making the game interesting with his wayward backpass.

Speaking to BBC's Match of the Day, Jurgen Klopp has just said the same thing. Great assist to be fair.

'A good performance in a wonderful place'

Jurgen Klopp speaking to BT Sport: "At the end it was a great performance over 90 minutes. I thought it was a good challenge for us today because I know we can be really strong. If something does not work we have to show we can stay in the race, and believe in our style. We played calm football, but we can’t create with each pass, each movement.

"Leicester have big quality, are always a threat, even after we scored our third. It was a good performance in a wonderful place."

'I'm not as clinical as I should be'

Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge speaking to BT Sport: "We worked hard, it was important to come out in a new stadium and show the fans we can beat the champions, and perform week in week out at the highest level.

"For me it is all about making runs, as long as players are making movements and giving you the opportunities. I like to make runs to make space but it was a great run from Mane to make space for me.

"I was starting as a centre forward, I’m still not as clinical as I should be but I take it on the chin and get on with it."

Is Kante the difference?

Last season Vardy, Mahrez, Morgan, Schmeichel, Drinkwater (& others) all brilliant but Kante is such a HUGE miss #Security #LCFC

Liverpool 4-1 Leicester City

So many standout performances for Liverpool - Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson were the obvious ones.

Henderson in particular was quietly brilliant.

Leicester lack quality

Liverpool 4-1 Leicester City

Matt Elliott

Former Leicester City captain at Anfield for BBC Radio Leicester

I didn’t see anybody have a glaring howler of a game for Leicester, it was more of a general lack of quality. They couldn’t deal with Liverpool’s movement.

At times last year maybe the intensity was a little bit more, and maybe the opposition weren’t as good as Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City are going to be this season.

Leicester weren't up to it today, they were too slow to adapt.

Liverpool 4-1 Leicester City

Leicester City lost three Premier League games in the whole of last season - they've lost two in four this season.

The biggest Anfield crowd in Premier League history have been treated to a tasty game and a comprehensive three points.

Liverpool 4-1 Leicester City

Leicester win a late corner, but Liverpool deal with it comfortably.

SUBSTITUTION

Sadio Mane, who has been superb for Liverpool today, makes way for Alberto Moreno.

We'll have five minutes of added time.

'Leicester carved to shreds'

Liverpool 4-1 Leicester City

Matt Elliott

Former Leicester City captain at Anfield for BBC Radio Leicester

Again, a lack of concentration and communication from Leicester. They all looked lost. You still have to be professional and that wasn’t the case. 

Liverpool just carved them to shreds. You can’t really complain at that scoreline, the Reds have been far superior to the Blues today.

GOAL - Liverpool 4-1 Leicester City

Roberto Firmino

Roberto Firmino scores

Leicester City, the perennial counter attackers, have been schooled in the art.

Jordan Henderson plays a ball down the left channel and Kasper Schmeichel races out, only for Sadio Mane to push it around him.

Mane rolls it across to Roberto Firmino inside the area and he finishes into an empty net.

Decisions for Ranieri?

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Can't see Claudio persisting much longer this season with 2 forwards and 2 wide men now that Leicester have lost the ubiquitous Kanté.

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Nice, tidy stuff from Liverpool.

Sadio Mane plays in Roberto Firmino down the right and then gets a return pass.

Mane's first touch drives him through the Leicester defence and into the area, but his shot is against the body of Kasper Schmeichel.

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Simon Mignolet receives medical attention
Reuters

Simon Mignolet has been in the wars. Not content with a nose bleed, the Liverpool keeper has now got a cut above his right eye following an aerial challenge from Jamie Vardy.

YELLOW CARD

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Robert Huth, having already made Simon Mignolet wear tissue up his nose, is booked for a tussle with Nathaniel Clyne in the Liverpool area.

One for cumulative fouls that. I didn't see him do it, but I imagine referee Craig Pawson would have pointed theatrically at different parts of the pitch to illustrate that.

SUBSTITUTION

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Philippe Coutinho came on for Georginio Wijnaldum for Liverpool as part of that earlier substitution.

Apologies - I missed it.

'Impressive Liverpool'

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Matt Elliott

Former Leicester City captain at Anfield for BBC Radio Leicester

Generally Liverpool have been impressive, although they make their lives difficult for themselves at times.

Leicester haven't had that spark. People will talk about N'Golo Kante, but it's early in the season.

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Jordan Henderson should have signed off on this one.

Roberto Firmino puts Adam Lallana to the left byline and he cuts back to Henderson, 12 yards out, but he splurges it over.

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Ahmed Musa drops a cross in from the left side and Jamie Vardy meets it well, using his head to direct the ball at a satisfying angle, but it ends up straight at Simon Mignolet.

SUBSTITUTION

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Liverpool's first substitution sees Kevin Stewart come on for Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

This ain't over. Riyad Mahrez's corner drifts all the way to the far corner of the area and Danny Drinkwater meets it first time with a shot that deflects wide.

The next corner s played short and comes in - Daniel Amartey nudges wide.

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Liverpool deal with a long throw from Leicester but Luis Hernandez gets in a cross from deep. Robert Huth meets it - it seems to hit his back - and it trickles just wude.

'Leicester should have a bash'

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Matt Elliott

Former Leicester City captain at Anfield for BBC Radio Leicester

Leicester need to up the ante a little bit and go for broke, there's no point just seeing it out now.

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Leonardo Ulloa straight into the action as he gets to the by-line and cuts back but fails to find a team-mate.

At the other end, Roberto Firmino slips in Georginio Wijnaldum, but Kasper Schmeichel is out quickly to save - the linesman says it was offside, although that looks the wrong decision.

Ulloa on

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Matt Elliott

Former Leicester City captain at Anfield for BBC Radio Leicester

This is Ulloa's chance because Islam Slimani is probably going to come in and take his place.

SUBSTITUTION

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Leonardo Ulloa comes on for Marc Albrighton, meaning Ahmed Musa will switch to the left for Leicester. That's their final change.

Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City

Leicester are just showing a few signs they're not done with this yet.

There's more urgency, more zip. And Claudio Ranieri is up and barking at his side.
