The foxes lost their first away game of the season against the reds who made a mockery of their injury predicament.
Liverpool got the first goal when Johnny Evans inexplicably found his own net from a Liverpool corner. On second glance it may not be all on him. His fellow defender Fuchs missed the header which Evans may have expected him to make. But as a defender you have to be switched on so the blame still lands on Evans’s door. Harvey Barnes had Leicester’s best chance to equalize when his side footed finish went wide with Allison to beat. Things started to look bleak for City when Scottish defender Andy Robertson’s devilish cross met the head of Jota for an easy finish on 41 minutes. Jota is turning out to be the signing of the season churning out goals every other week.
In the second half, some heroic defending and Casper Schmeichel kept the scoreline respectable.Bobby Firmino scored a rare Anfield goal from a header from another corner on 86 minutes which the foxes defended like Sunday League. Brandon Rodgers clearly need to sort out the defending of set pieces if Leicester are to keep their championship hopes realistic and not fade away like last season. 3-0 to Liverpool it ended. Liverpool setting a new home wins record giving Jurgen Klopp’s side a place amongst giants such as the Chelsea of Mourinho and Liverpool of the 70s under Paisley.
