Leicester City hosted a 3-1 win against defending champions Liverpool FC on Saturday in the 24th round of the English Football Championship.
The home team was in third place on the table and the guests were fourth before the round. Defending champion Divock Origi, Ben Benies, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Fabinho, Diogo Jota and Naby Keita were also missing, and James Milner had to be replaced in the 17th minute due to injury.
In the 67th minute, after the home team’s defensive swing, Mohamed Salah took the lead for Liverpool. In the 78th minute, James Maddison equalized after no one entered his free kick from the side of the box, so the ball found its way into the long bottom corner. Three minutes later, Jamie Vardy took advantage of an error by Alisson Becker, who ran far from his goal, and in the 85th minute, thanks to loose Liverpool defense, Harvey Barnes decided the match.
Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel of Denmark is the 100th in the series, defending a total of 233 times in the English lead.
Prior to that, Leicester last beat its rival in 2017, and since then, Liverpool has won a draw six times in seven times. The defending champion made it to the Premier League for the third time in a row – failing to score a point against Brighton and Manchester City last week – most recently in the autumn of 2014, when Brendan Rodgers, the current coach of Leicester City, was Liverpool head coach .
