(Video) Watch: Leicester City 🆚 Liverpool (0-3) | All Goals & Extended Highlights | Premier League
Liverpool beat Leicester in the Premier League thanks to a Trent Alexander-Arnold rocket. Curtis Jones’ first-half double put the Reds up, and the Foxes never had a genuine chance after that.
Mohamed Salah was on hand as he provided three brilliant assists on the night. Leicester City 0-3 Liverpool at full-time at the King Power Stadium.
Liverpool is fifth in the rankings with 65 points after 36 games, one point behind fourth-placed Manchester United, who have a game in hand. Leicester are 19th with 30 points, two behind Everton in 17th with two games remaining.
After a sluggish start, Jones broke the deadlock in the 33rd minute with a magnificent first-time strike from Mohamed Salah’s cross after Leicester’s high defensive line was caught off guard by Liverpool goalie Alisson’s long throw over the top. Three minutes later, the 22-year-old midfielder scored again, and this time it was Salah who set him up, with Jones taking a touch on the spin before firing home.
The home supporters tried everything to get their team back into the game, but Alexander-Arnold struck a magnificent third in the 71st minute after a free kick was pushed into his path by Salah. His powerful finish into the top corner snuffed away any possibility of a Leicester comeback.
Liverpool won their seventh league game in a row, whereas Leicester only took two points from their last four games. With a trip to high-flying Newcastle United and a home game against West Ham United on the horizon, time is running out for the 2016 Premier League winners to maintain their status.
