Liverpool down Leicester to widen lead

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side opened up a 13-point lead at the top of the English Premier League after thrashing nearest title challengers Leicester City 4-0 at The King Power Stadium.

The Reds went into the half-time break with a slender lead courtesy of Roberto Firmino’s header from a brilliant Trent Alexander-Arnold cross.

But things took a turn for the worse for Leicester in the 71st minute when Caglar Soyuncu handled the ball, and James Milner scored from the spot, just seconds after coming on as a substitute.

From then on it was all Liverpool as Alexander-Arnold set up another for Firmino, who scored with a cool finish, before the England defender bagged a goal for himself with a powerful right-footed effort.

Klopp’s league leaders have now dropped only two points from their last 18 games and are in a strong position to finally end their 30-year wait for the title.
