Leicester City 3 – 1 Liverpool
Leicester turned back the clock by putting on a reminder of how they won the Premier League title with a classy 3-1 win over Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.
Trademark strikes from Jamie Vardy (28) and Danny Drinkwater (39) put the fallen champions in control at the break.
Vardy then headed home his second to make the game safe on 60 minutes, before Philippe Coutinho pulled a goal back (68) with the Reds’ best move of the match.
The goals were the first the Foxes have scored in the league in 2017 and ended a run of five straight top-flight defeats in spectacular fashion.
Liverpool – who would have climbed to third with a victory – have now lost five of their past seven matches in all competitions.
The 65-year-old Italian has left an indelible imprint on the club with last season’s astonishing success.
However, the inconvenient truth for many is that he was overseeing statistically one of the worst title defences in English top-flight history – one that has left Leicester facing the prospect of become the first reigning champions to be relegated since Manchester City in 1938.
