In the match of the 20th round of the Premier League, Leicester unexpectedly beat Liverpool at home with a score of 1:0.
The first half passed without goals scored, and Mohamed Salah missed the penalty in the 16th minute. The only goal brought the winner in the second half of the meeting. In the 59th minute, Ademola Lookman scored for Brendan Rogers’ team.
Note that last week Leicester and Liverpool met in the League Cup quarterfinals. The Merseyside team reached the semifinals only thanks to their victory in the penalty shootout (3:3, 5:4 p.).
As a result, Liverpool missed the chance to get close to the leading Manchester City, which is now six points ahead of the Reds and will play their match against Brentford tomorrow. Leicester climbed to ninth place in the standings. In the next match, Jurgen Klopp’s side will play Chelsea on January 2, while Leicester will host Norwich the previous day.
