Liverpool vs Leicester City result, analysis and highlights

ANFIELD, LIVERPOOL — Wout Faes scored two own goals to condemn Leicester to a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.Liverpool vs Leicester City result, analysis and highlights

The Foxes had led inside four minutes as Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall walked through the Reds defence to score a goal of barely believable simplicity.

But the game was turned on its head by half-time, the hapless Faes twice putting through his own net in farcical fashion.

It was more than the hosts deserved, in truth, but they saw out an evenly contested second period to secure a fourth Premier League win on the spin.

Thiago odd one out in midfield

This was another game that evidenced Liverpool’s desperate need for midfield reinforcements in the January transfer window.

Leicester looked quicker, stronger and smarter in the centre of the park as they swept up second balls and won the majority of the battles across the 90 minutes.

But, if there was one man in a Liverpool shirt who could come away with his head held high, it was Thiago Alcantara.

The Spaniard didn’t have much help in the engine room, but produced a performance that mixed craft and graft to give the Reds what little control they had.

Alexander-Arnold silences Barnes

Trent Alexander-Arnold is so often criticised for his one-on-one defending that it is only right to highlight when he does well in that regard.

And the young Scouser was outstanding on the right-hand side of Liverpool’s defence on Friday evening, despite receiving a thorough examination.

There were countless occasions when Harvey Barnes skipped away down the left and looked to drive into the box to create danger for Leicester.

But time and time again, Alexander-Arnold was there to win the ball and get the hosts back on the front foot. If he can keep this form up, then the critics will soon be silenced.

Improvement needed for Brentford

In beating Leicester, Liverpool moved onto four wins on the bounce in the Premier League and two points shy of the top four.

However, they are going to have to do so much better if they are to sustain that mini-renaissance into the weeks ahead.

A repeat of Friday evening’s performance is unlikely to be enough to beat an in-form Brentford away from home next up, even if an injury to Ivan Toney has made that fixture look a little kinder.
