Coutinho Scores As Liverpool Beat Leicester City In Five-Goal Thriller
Liverpool on Saturday recorded their first win in five games as they beat Leicester City 2-3 in an interesting Premier League thriller at the King Power Stadium.
Philippe Coutinho was quite massive for the Reds as he got one of the goals that ensured that Liverpool finally returned to winning ways after the disappointments of the past weeks.
It was Mo Salah that got the first goal before Coutinho doubled the advantage and it was looking like Jurgen Klopp's men were cruising.
But a goal from Shinji Okazaki on the stroke of half-time gave the Foxes the needed lifeline.
Jordan Henderson appeared to have sealed victory as he restored the visitors' two goal lead but Jamie Vardy made sure of a nervy finish with a header.
The striker should have then earned his side a point but fired his penalty at Simon Mignolet having been brought down by the Belgian keeper.
The result sees Liverpool set fifth, five points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.
