Fir the second match running Champions Liverpool suffered a second half meltdown to go down at the King Power 3-1. Klopp gave a first start to Schalke 04 signing Kabak in the heart of defense with Henderson. It had no effect whatsoever to stabilize that shaky back 4. Ndidi is indeed the MAN at the foxes. He was the box to box player that Thiago had not been for Liverpool all season. He kept Mane quiet, spot on tackling and he created the killer pass for Harvey Barnes for the winner.
Liverpool deserved praise though for at least getting the opener to cap off their dominance of possession in the first half. Vision of Firmino to pick out Salah impeccable. The Maddison equaliser was a bit fortunate after Armatey was flagged offside initially but you create your own luck in football. Allison at least has been consistent in his error making continuing were he left off against Man City. Just a shout to newboy Kabak would have saved his blushes. Vardy will not score a more easier goal.
The Foxes now up to 2nd on the standings albeit temporarily with United playing Sunday at the Hawthorns. Liverpool slump to a third consecutive defeat for the first time since …guess who was in charge?. Brendan Rodgers was in charge when they did this in 2014. They face a mighty task to qualify for the Europa League next season let the Champions League.
