Leicester Stun Liverpool
Ademola Lookman came off the bench to consign Liverpool to a shock 1-0 defeat at Leicester after Mohamed Salah had a penalty saved.
It was a miserable night for Jurgen Klopp’s side as they failed to close the six-point gap to Premier League leaders Manchester City and their wastefulness was to blame.
Salah’s first-half penalty was saved by the brilliant Kasper Schmeichel but he did not test the goalkeeper from the rebound and nor did Sadio Mane when through after the break.
Lookman punished Liverpool with a fine goal just before the hour mark and Brendan Rodgers’ depleted side held on for a memorable win that moves them back up to ninth.
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: “The players put in a heroic effort when you think of the recovery time against a team with so much power and athleticism. You don’t keep a clean sheet against Liverpool if everyone isn’t working. But it was the context of it after playing against Manchester City.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “We were just not really ourselves tonight. I think we started OK. I didn’t like 100 per cent the intensity even at the beginning.
“We forced it a little bit too early, we crossed it a bit too early instead of taking the extra pass. For some reason it did not click tonight. We were pushing but did not use the chances, missed free headers, all these things. In the end, I thought they deserved it.
