VIDEO: Leicester City 2 – 3 Liverpool [Premier League] Highlights 2017/18

A thrilling clash between Leicester City and a Philippe Coutinho-inspired Liverpool saw the visiting Reds emerge with the points.
Philippe Coutinho inspired Liverpool to a thrilling 3-2 Premier League win over Leicester City as the visitors fought off a Foxes fightback that saw Jamie Vardy miss a chance to equalise from the penalty spot.

Having already brilliantly created the opener for Mohamed Salah, Coutinho netted for the Reds for the first time since they rejected advances from Barcelona for his services in the recent transfer window.

There had been pressure on Jurgen Klopp and his side coming into this game after a four-game winless run in all competitions, but those concerns were largely forgotten by the midway point of the first half at the KingPower Stadium as the travelling supporters sang Coutinho’s name.

Leicester’s determined nature meant that it was still far too soon to consider the job done, however, and Shinji Okazaki – a scorer in his side’s midweek EFL Cup win over the Merseysiders – pulled a goal back before the break.

Craig Shakespeare had acknowledged that his men benefited from the half-time withdrawal of Coutinho in Tuesday’s clash, but Liverpool showed they can threaten on multiple fronts as Jordan Henderson coolly converted at the end of a speedy counter-attack.
