Premier League, Anfield
December 30, 2017

Goals: Jamie Vardy 3′, Mohamed Salah 52′ 75′.

Liverpool had to come from behind to take the three points at Anfield in a feisty encounter against Leicester.

An early defensive lapse saw the Reds a goal down inside three minutes, Jamie Vardy scoring from close range in front of a watching Virgil van Dijk.

Mohamed Salah had three good chances to equalise but failed to add to his goal tally as the Reds were left frustrated, a goal down at the break.

Soon after the restart it was all square though as Sadio Mane‘s backheel released Salah, who danced into space and this time fired in the equaliser.

And the Egyptian rolled his man and buried his second of the afternoon with 15 minutes left to complete a turnaround.

Here’s how the watching fans saw the game unfold…

 

Van Dijk’s arrival to the stadium had fans eagerly anticipating his influence on the team even before he was officially part of the squad…

 

…And the early goal conceded by the current back four didn’t help matters.

”Matip with the error but fans will blame Karius and Lovren.”

First-half chances came and went, with Salah in particular missing a few…

 

At half time there was the usual quick-fire reaction to the Reds being behind…

”I think Mane should be rested for Chamberlain and Can must push a bit forward. Central defence is very suspicious. Lastly we need some luck too.”

After the restart Salah finally found his shooting boots…

 

And Salah’s second sealed the comeback win which left fans happy overall, but with mixed views on individual performances.

”Emre’s heads gone. He was bloody awful. Shouldn’t play again IMO.”

”Cant believe Lukaku is 75m and Salah is just 35m! What a bargain!”
