Share on Social Media
Liverpool move joint-top of the Premier League table following a convincing 3-0 win over Leicester City at Anfield.
An own goal from Johny Evans and a goal each from Diogo Jota as well as Roberto Firmoino was enough to equal their unbeaten streak at Anfield to 64 matches.
It did not look like Liverpool had most of their players out through injury as they started the match with fireworks.
Evans scored a bizarre own goal from a corner kick delivered into the box by James Milner in the 21st minute to make it 1-0.
Sadio Mane had his shot saved by Kasper Schmeichel and several follow-ups could not get the ball into the back of the net.
Four minutes before half time as Andrew Robertson’s cross was headed home brilliantly by in-form striker Jota.
Jota became the first Liverpool player to score in his opening four league matches for the Merseyside club.
Jurgen Klopp’s men pressed further in the second as Firmino finally got his long-awaited goal four minutes from time to make it 3-0.
Liverpool are now level on points with Tottenham on the Premier League table with 20 points from nine matches but Spurs have a better goal-difference.
Chelsea and Leicester City also share the same points in second and third positions respectively with 18 points.
