The defeat left Liverpool six points behind the table topper, Manchester City. On the other side, Leicester City climbed up to the 9th after the match against the Klopp boys.
Liverpool traveled last night at the King Power Stadium to play against the Rogers boys. In this match, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp set up his team formation with 4-3-3. He made some changes against the Foxes. Klopp replaced Andrew Robertson with Konstantinos Tsimikas last night. In the front, he played Diogo Jota alongside Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.
On the other hand, the home team manager played his team in a 4-3-1-2 formation. He used Jamie Vardy and K. Iheanacho as the front two. Leicester midfielder James Maddison played as the number 10 last night.
However, the Klopp boys tried to dominate from the beginning of the game. They played a very high pressing football from the starting. In the first 20 minutes, the Klopp boys took control of the match. The All Reds got a penalty kick in the 15th minute as Leicester defender Wilfred Ndidi fouled Mohammad Salah inside the box.
Salah decided to take the penalty kick as he is the regular penalty taker of Liverpool. But last night, he missed the penalty shot. The Foxes goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel, blocked his shot in the 16th minute. However, Salah’s header hit the bar as well.
Returning from the break, both managers made some changes on the field. Klopp replaced Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with Naby Keita, while Brandon Rogers substituted Kelechi Iheanacho with Youri Tielemans.
The home team settled down in the second half. They looked more stable after coming back to the break. In the 59th minute, the Foxes took the lead as Ademola Lookman beat Allison and found the net. It was a brilliant goal from Lookman with the help of Dewsbury-Hall.
Conceding the goal, Liverpool became very desperate to find the equalizer. They took a total of 21 shots in the entire match. But the Foxes defended very well that the visitors could break them. As a result, Liverpool lost the game and left six points behind the Guardiola boys.
