A brilliant performance from Leicester, who did what they used to do, which, in the absence of Claudio Ranieri, they have now started doing again. From the off, they harried and hassled Liverpool, but most importantly of all, they played to their strengths, namely the pace of Jamie Vardy. He’s had barely any service this season, but tonight they hit him as early as they could as often as they could, and he responded with two expertly taken finishes, sandwiching a finish for the ages from Danny Drinkwater. They move up to 15th in the table and will surely now survive.
The least said about Liverpool the better – they were sluggish, predictable and disorganise, so stay 5th, a point behind Arsenal and a point ahead of Manchester United, both of whom have played a game less.
