A 95th-minute penalty by James Milner kept Liverpool's 100% record intact after a 2-1 win over Leicester City to make it 24 games without a loss in the league.
Liverpool had a 100% start to the season coming into the match and were out to fasten their grip at the summit of the table while Leicester City were aiming to keep their top-four ambitions alive with a positive result.
Liverpool enjoyed the lion's share of possession in the opening stages but failed to threaten the Leicester City goalmouth.
Sadio Mane who has carried on his fine form from last campaign into this season broke the deadlock five minutes before the half time whistle when James Milner curled in a delightful long pass into the path of the Senegalese, who tucked the ball away after a one-on-one with Kasper Schmeichel.
Liverpool continued from where they left from in the first half but failed to make their chances count. Leicester made the Reds rue their missed opportunities in the 80th minute when Perez slipped the ball to Maddison who had sufficient space before nestling his shot into the corner despite Adrian getting his hands on the ball.
There was late drama in the final minute of added time as Marc Albrighton picked the pocket of Divock Origi but failed to communicate with Schmeichel as Mane regained the ball and Albrighton impeded him. James Milner held his nerve to convert the penalty and hand Liverpool three vital points.
Liverpool next travel to face Manchester United after the international break while Leicester will look to pick themselves up against Burnley.
