Injury hit Liverpool beats Leicester City to set new Anfield record

2 min read

Liverpool yet again defied their injury woes with a dominant 3-0 win against Leicester City to rise above them in the Premier League table and move into second.

Despite the international break adding the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson to their long list of absentees, the home side showed no sign of being fazed by it.

A couple of fantastic saves from Kasper Schmeichel should have been wake-up calls for the Leicester defence but Jonny Evans’ own goal in the 21st minute showed that they were still fast asleep.

The Northern Irish centre-back was too busy wrestling with Sadio Mane in the penalty area to notice where the ball was when James Milner whipped in a corner and it went in off the back of his head to make it 1-0 to Liverpool.

The home side then went on to double their lead in the 41st minute after a wonderful passing move that started with Curtis Jones in midfield and ended with the onrushing Diogo Jota heading the ball into the back of the net from a fizzed Andy Robertson cross.

Leicester had a few half-chances of their own on the counter-attack but they will be relieved to not have lost by even more goals, especially considering how many times Liverpool hit the woodwork or had the ball cleared off the line in the second half.

However, the Reds sealed the win when the unmarked Roberto Firmino headed home a Milner corner in the 86th minute to make it three.

They will be playing host to Atlanta in the Champions League on Wednesday night before travelling to Brighton for their next Premier League fixture at the weekend, whereas the Foxes have a midweek Europa League match away to Braga before their weekend game against Fulham.
