Liverpool remain 100% in the campaign in a hard-fought 2:1 victory against Leicester City.

The reds were 2-0 up in the first half when they thought they only needed to finish their flying form in style. Leicester came up in the second half with a different mindset which and it paid off a little bit, thanks to Allison blunder which elated the voice of the crowd.

The visitors went in front after just ten minutes with strident noise from King Power Stadium when Andrew Robertson crossed low into the menace area and Sadio Mane taking one touch before scoring yet again.

Liverpool would have scored more but Mo Salah’s misfiring gave Klopp an option of replace him with Shakiri.

The reds were cool and far convincing after the break but Wes Morgan nearly gave the host the lead, unfortunately, he couldn’t connect properly with the ball.

Just a few minutes later, Kelechi Iheanacho went close to the Goalkeeper as Alisson tried to dribble the Nigerian striker. Iheanacho snatched the ball and immediately crossed a low one to Rachid Ghezzal who diverted the ball into the back of the net.

Klopp made changes that later pacified the game as Liverpool got the point they deserved.

The Reds remain in the first position with 12 points and they will face a bigger task against Tottenham after the international break.
