Great Game from Liverpool agains Leicester City
- Title : Great Game from Liverpool agains Leicester City
No van Dijk? Not an Alexander Arnold? No salah? No problem! Even without numerous top performers, Liverpool FC delivered an impressive performance in the top game against Leicester City and set a new club record in the well-deserved 3-0 win in Anfield.
Busy with Mané: Evans heads the ball into his own net
What followed after that was nothing less than a show of force by the weakened substitute master, who had the Foxes completely under control for over 90 minutes. Jones (9th) and Jota (14th) gave the first warning shots for the Reds, who then had a little luck with the opening goal: After a Milner corner, Evans, busy with Mané, headed the ball into his own goal (21st).
Leicester even had the opportunity to hit back directly: Barnes, however, moved from a good position after passing the otherwise completely canceled Vardy (24th).
Also hit in the fourth home game: Jota is a novelty
Especially when it comes to standards, the Reds were always dangerous: Matip only narrowly missed the goal after a corner or free kick (27./33.). Liverpool still added before the break: After a strong lateral shift by Jones, Robertson crossed very strongly to the first post, where Jota executed his head (41.). The Portuguese achieved something that no one before him has achieved: he has scored in his first four home games for the Reds.
After the change, the balance of power did not change. Mané failed in the penalty area against Schmeichel (55th), Firmino also against the Danish goalkeeper and the post (58th). In the 77th minute it got really strange: Firmino prevailed in the penalty area and chased the ball against the left inside post. Albrighton scratched the second attempt off the line (the goal control recording showed that a few millimeters were missing). After Mané's margin, the ball from Schmeichel bounced again against the post.
Shortly before the end, Firmino was able to look forward to his goal. After Milner's corner, he climbed undisturbed and headed the 3-0 final. Liverpool remained unbeaten in their 64th league home game in a row (53 wins, eleven draws) - something that had never happened before in the club's glorious history.
