“This tale is rather old”, “Out of luck recently” – Fans react to Leicester City 2-0 Liverpool

Liverpool were dumped out of the League Cup by Leicester City on Tuesday, with the Reds’ 2-0 defeat seeing their worrying current slump continue.

Leicester City 2-0 Liverpool

League Cup Third Round, King Power Stadium
September 19, 2017

Goals: Okazaki 65′, Slimani 78′

The two sides met in the third round at the King Power, with Liverpool hoping to begin a charge for their first piece of silverware since 2012.

It didn’t pan out that way, though, as yet more poor finishing proved costly and shaky defending allowed the hosts to progress.

Second-half goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani saw Leicester win, and the final exchanges saw Jurgen Klopp‘s side go out in a whimper.
