Match report: Liverpool beaten by Leicester City

27th February 2017

Liverpool resumed their Premier League campaign with defeat as they were beaten 3-1 by Leicester City on Monday evening.

After an even start to the contest, Jamie Vardy and Danny Drinkwater netted for the managerless Foxes to carve out a convincing half-time lead.

And, after Vardy had added to his tally in the second period, Philippe Coutinho could only bag a consolation for Jürgen Klopp’s team, who could have few complaints about the result.

The key points…

  • Vardy and Drinkwater give hosts a half-time lead
  • Foxes add to their advantage through Vardy
  • Coutinho strikes back as Reds lose out

The team news…

With Jordan Henderson sidelined through a foot injury, Klopp made just one enforced change to his line-up, with Emre Can replacing the captain.

Leicester, meanwhile, opted to stick with the XI that suffered a narrow defeat to Sevilla in the Champions League last week.

The first half…

The hosts started much the brighter, with Robert Huth and Shinji Okazaki calling Simon Mignolet into action with headed efforts inside the first six minutes.
