Liverpool built a 2-0 lead over Leicester City on Saturday afternoon through first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino - but a freaky sequence in the 63rd minute allowed the home team back into the game.
Sadio Mane poked home inside eleven minutes to break the deadlock, before Roberto Firmino opened his account for the campaign with a thunderous header on the cusp of half time.

"I think there are a couple of mistakes before then", the left-back said when asked about Alisson's error at the King Power Stadium.
The Nigerian striker promptly robbed Alisson and set up Rachid Ghezzal for a goal that ensure a nervy ending for the Merseyside outfit.
The way they started the game, they bore the look of champions, not just leaders. We're not always going to have the best performances but we'll take the result every day of the week.
"I also had all the conditions to kick the ball away and tried to keep playing, keep the possession".
It was a very entertaining game played in a terrific atmosphere and I really enjoyed everything about the match-apart from the result.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
