Liverpool 2-0 Leicester – Premier League Highscores



Liverpool is on a roll: they defeated Leicester 2-0 at Anfield Road and moved to 9 points behind Manchester City with one game in hand. Jota scored both goals in a stadium that he received with a standing ovation for the Colombian Díaz.

The team led by Jürgen Klopp is chasing the lead on the back of a Diogo Jota who is in top form.

The Portuguese striker signed a brace with which he reached 17 goals in all tournaments and surpassed the 16 he scored with Wolverhampton in the 2019-20 season.

With two goals, one in each part, he decreed a victory that seemed to be coming soon against some Foxies who left a very bad face.

Jota’s first goal came thanks to a rebound he hit inside the area. Virgil van Dijk rose, headed in and Kasper Schmeichel left the ball short for Liverpool to make it 1-0.

Leicester just followed the game behind the Reds like a horse with a carrot. Liverpool managed the times as they pleased and the only time the Foxies aspired to a counterattack was Alisson who appeared to close the goal.

Diogo converted the second in the middle of an offensive that overwhelmed Leicester and found Joel Matip as an assist, with a great pass for the Portuguese striker to get the second of his personal account and decree the final score.

Diogo Jota, who carries a tremendous fortune this season, has 12 goals in this Premier League and only Salah -16- exceeds his goals in the English tournament.

Leicester has conceded 39 goals in this Premier League and that Schmeichel had a brilliant performance for a team that is anchored in the middle of the table, far from any chance of reaching the European cup zone.

The star of the night was not the author of a double, but Luis Díaz, the Colombian who debuted with Liverpool had his Premier League debut and entertained the Anfield stands.

Díaz was a storm on his wing and came close to scoring on several occasions, but he had no luck against a great goalkeeper like Schmeichel, although he was replaced in the 90th minute and received a standing ovation from the entire stadium.

Klopp’s bench had impressive names and he decided to take the field with Mo Salah in the second half: the Egyptian striker played a formidable half hour with a one-on-one that the Danish goalkeeper took out and another ball that crashed into the top corner.
