Ademola Lookman scored the only goal as Leicester beat Liverpool to leave

the Reds six points off the top of the Premier League table.

Liverpool’s biggest chances came in the first half when Mohamed Salah had

a 15th-minute penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel and headed the rebound

off the bar.

Sadio Mane then missed a couple of opportunities for Jurgen Klopp’s side
before they were made to pay by the hosts in the 59th minute.

Former Everton forward Lookman with only his fourth touch after coming

on, took Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s pass in his stride, beat Joel Matip and

rifled a shot past Alisson – Leicester’s only one goal of the game.

Leicester, missing several first-team players, hung on despite relentless

late Liverpool pressure – just six days after blowing a 3-1 lead to lose on

penalties against the same opposition in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.

With only their second defeat of the season, Liverpool are now six points

behind leaders Manchester City, while Leicester who have won just two

games out of seven – move up to ninth.

The Reds could also end 2021 in third place and nine points off top spot if

Pep Guardiola’s City beat Brentford,  and Chelsea at least draw with

Brighton, on Wednesday.
