Liverpool 2 – 1 Leicester City [EPL] Highlights 2017/18
Mohamed Salah’s second-half brace sealed a pulsating come-from-behind 2-1 win for Liverpool over Leicester City at Anfield.
Fourth-placed Liverpool are now unbeaten in 12 Premier League matches, a run that owes much to the brilliant Salah.
The Egypt forward now has 23 goals in all competitions this season – more than the total mustered by eight Premier League clubs – and his inspiration was needed after a shaky start.
Virgil van Dijk, who will replace Salah as Liverpool’s record signing when his £75million switch from Southampton is completed, looked on from the stands as some abject defending allowed Jamie Vardy to score for the seventh time in his past five outings against the Reds inside three minutes.
Claude Puel’s side, who remain eighth in the standings, were subjected to relentless waves of attack for their trouble and, although they held out manfully until the break, a deserved Liverpool win was sealed by Salah 14 minutes from time.
