Liverpool extended an unbeatable record of 64 matches at Anfield.
Report as Liverpool makes it more difficult for the Leicester squad to move to the top points of the Premier League with Tottenham; for the Jurgen Klopp’s side, Anfield is not off to beat 64 matches.
The side of Jurgen Klopp, who had absent Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, and Mohamed Salah, defied the issue of injury by giving them a 2-0 advantage in half-time by Jonny Evans’ own goal (21).
Liverpool, who last saw a loss in Anfield in April 20017, stretched its lead to the header of Roberto Firmino (86) for four minutes as it won a win that saw them break the record of unbeatable matches in the high flight, which stood in Anfield since 1981.
The victory propelled Liverpool ahead of the Premier League and Tottenham when Leicester lost at home for the first time in the league.
Leicester early screamed for a fine once the ball hit Joel Matip’s hand inside the prison area, but for a second inspection, VAR Andre Marriner didn’t send Chris Kavanagh, the referee, to his pitchside camera.
Following this frontline terrifying, Liverpool dominated the earlier operation, prompting Kasper Schmeichel to save Curtis Jones and Jota early on.
But he was one of the teammates of Schmeichel who eventually beat him to hand the breakthrough to Klopp’s guys. Before James Milner’s corner struck against his head and skipped through the Leicester goalkeeper, Evans was too concerned about Sadio Mane.
