Speaking after Liverpool's latest setback, the England international said they played outstanding for 75 minutes of the game before "crumbling" in the latter stages.
"I think, 70, 75 minutes, we were outstanding, up there with one of our best performances," he told LFCTV.
"Counter-pressing, taking the ball off them for fun. They couldn't really get out. Really, really top drawer from us.
"I think, first half, we never created too many clear-cut chances but second half we did. [We] had a few more shots, scored, and were in the driving seat.
"And then the tables turned. They put the game to bed in the matter of five, 10 minutes.
"That's football. It happens so quickly, it just happens. In the moment, we've crumbled at the end of the day."
Following their capitulation at the King Power Stadium, the Reds are now a massive 13 points behind league leaders Manchester City who have a game in hand.
