Leicester City made a 3-1 win against Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. In the first half both the goalkeepers maintained the score 0-0 rather they were lucky enough to maintain that. On the Liverpool side, Henderson’s sharp vision made a chance to give the ball to salah in one versus one position but Pereira’s pressure became the cause of losing control of the ball.
Reds maintained their play controlling the mid, in 17 minutes of the match injury knocked the Liverpool plan when Milner signaled, he could not continue Thiago came.
Another attack when Thiago’s out step cross head by Mane came to make Alexander-Arnold’s forward pass deflected by Kasper Schmeichel made a chance to Firmino to made a close finish but again blocked by Kasper Schmeichel.

In the second half, Firmino’s dodge pass in the D box of the Leicester made a beautiful finish done by salah. Liverpool took the lead but can’t hold for longer when Maddison’s free-kick made it 1-1 on the score table.

But after the match ends Maddison criticized after telling “we’ve got a lot of injuries but you won’t hear about them because we’re not the big 6”. Also,
“We know, when we play Liverpool, it’s going to be tough, because they can build and pass, and be direct as well,”
“It’s a case of staying in the game. We’re a top team now, we’ve got quality, and if we get chances, we can put them away. It showed because in 10 minutes we turned the game on its head.
“Alisson is obviously having a bit of a tough time at the moment, but I’m sure he’ll be back. I’m just glad we could take advantage of his mistake.”
Jurgen Klopp told BBC Sport afterward: “It was a clear game that we should win. We played good football, dominated possession, took the game out of Leicester but apart from that we were really top in the game.
“We scored a goal, could have and should have scored more, whatever. Everything fine and then the penalty, free-kick, offside, not offside, goal. That had a proper impact. That is something that has to change. The first goal for me is offside. The difference is we think it’s an objective thing but it’s not.”
