Leicester 3-1 Liverpool: Foxes stage comeback to stun The Reds

Liverpool collapsed at King Power Stadium following a 3-1 loss to hosts Leicester City in a Premier League match played on Saturday afternoon. 

It was one-sided first half with Liverpool seeing much of the ball while Leicester had the chances to break the deadlock. Just before halftime, Amartey had the ball as he flicked forward for Maddison who fed Jamie Vardy who raced through before whacking the bar. 

In the second half, Liverpool were also denied by the crossbar as Alexander-Arnold pulled a prank and his shot took a deflection and thud against the bar. Schmeichel wasn't getting there as the Reds went so close to take the lead. 

Liverpool opened the scoring through Mohamed Salah, who scored a beauty past Schmeichel. Alexander-Arnold ran forward down the right, his cross was taken in by Firmino who produced a superb piece of skill to set up Salah and the shot is away from Schmeichel into the bottom corner. That's Salah's 17th Premier League goal of the season.

Barnes was brought down on the line and there were calls for a penalty. After a VAR check, it was a freekick just on the line. Liverpool paid for it as Maddison's whipped free-kick went right through and into the bottom corner. The flag was up for offside, but after VAR's check, the goal stood. 

Alisson had another howler as the ball was sent forward, Kabak was running back to his own goal and looked to have under control but the Brazilian came charging out, took out his defender, and deflected the ball into the path of Vardy who run it in. 

Leicester took the lead as Barnes was played in by Ndidi after running off Kavak. He had ACRES of space and so clinically slotted the ball past Alisson, who couldn't make the stop this time. Salah gave the ball away halfway but Liverpool's defense was suddenly cut wide open.
