Premier League (23), Anfield

Goals: Jota 34′ 87′


The Reds hosted the Foxes at Anfield, looking to stay in touch with Man City after their win over Brentford on Wednesday.

Leicester had their chances early on but Liverpool dominated, taking the lead through Jota’s 16th goal of the season.

Substitute Mohamed Salah hit the crossbar and new signing Luis Diaz also tested Kasper Schmeichel, but Jota fired home his second of the evening late on.

The victory takes Jurgen Klopp‘s within nine points of City with a game in hand, as they remain in the Premier League title race.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s win on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s comments section.
