Lookman’s only goal helps Leicester City beat Liverpool at King Power Stadium

Liverpool FC has now gone six points behind the league leaders Manchester City after they were stunned by Leicester City on Tuesday night.

Leicester City has stunned Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool FC as Lookman’s only goal proved to be decisive in the match. Liverpool FC was at King Power Stadium (Leicester City’s home stadium) on Tuesday night to play against the Foxes in the Premier League. But, the Reds didn’t have the best of their game as they had to face the defeat against the former Liverpool manager Brendon Rodgers. With this defeat, Liverpool FC has gone six points behind the league leaders Manchester City who is sitting comfortably at 47 points. Pep Guardiola has taken an amazing lead before the new year and the form they are currently in, it will be very difficult for the other teams to overtake the table-toppers this season.

Liverpool FC started the game very brightly as they were in possession as soon as the referee blew the whistle. In the 14th minute, the visitors were awarded a penalty after Leicester’s central defensive midfielder Ndidi made a bad challenge on Mohamed Salah. Salah took the penalty but it was saved by Kasper Schmeichel, the ball went to Salah again after a rebound from the keeper and he tried to score from his head but again it hit the upper post and the scoreline was still 0-0.

The Reds created many chances but it was Leicester’s defense line and a goalkeeper who made some fantastic saves to restrict Jurgen Klopp’s men from scoring. Brendon Rodgers’s team was happy to keep the scoreline level at half-time. The home team Leicester City came back stronger in the second half as they were playing a good counter-attacking football since the start of the half. In the 59th minute, the host got what they deserved as Leicester City’s forward Ademola Lookman who came off the bench in the second half scored the opening goal. It was some goal from the Leicester man as he strikes the ball and beats Alisson at the near post after getting a sweet pass from his teammate named Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall from the left-wing. This was the only goal scored in this match. Despite some great chances created by the visitors, they weren’t able to score to secure even a single point in this game.
