Ademola Lookman came on as a substitute to score the match-winner as Leicester produced one of the shocking football results of the midweek action in the Premier League. Mohamed Salah missed a penalty in the first half after he was brought down in the box by Wilfried Ndidi. They missed a number of chances with Sadio Mane missing the easiest one when he shot wide with just the keeper to beat.

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 percent 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.”
