Liverpool opened the match on a good note with a sensational goal, only to be dramatically swept away by Leicester’s shocking response.
Leicester shockingly equalised with three goals in seven breathtaking second-half minutes as another Alisson mistake contributed to a 3-1 defeat for Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.
The Premier League champions looked in relative control and deservedly led when Mohamed Salah broke the deadlock after 67 minutes but Jurgen Klopp’s side imploded to slip six points behind their opponents.
James Maddison hauled Leicester level when his free-kick was allowed to stand following VAR review for an offside call on Daniel Amartey (78) before a terrible breakdown in communication between Alisson and new boy Ozan Kabak allowed Jamie Vardy to tap home from close range (81).
Harvey Barnes compounded Liverpool’s misery with a well-taken third (85) as Leicester moved up to second in the table ahead of the weekend’s remaining fixtures, with the visitors still fourth – 10 points behind leaders Manchester City having played two games more.
