Leicester City beat Liverpool 3-1, days after the top bosses sacked Claudio Ranieri after dismal defence of their Premier League title. Leicester City were on the verge of being relegated after beating 5000-1 odds last season and winning the title. Jamie Vardy and Danny Drinkwater scored for Leicester while Liverpool’s Countinho scored a consolation goal for Liverpool.

With a win over Liverpool, Leicester City moved in to the 15th spot in the Premier League table. While Liverpool have won just once in their last 4 premier league games putting them 14 points behind the table toppers Chelsea.

Jamie Vardy made a mark on the score board at the 28th minute. Vardy picked up a good, accurate pass from Marcus Albrighton and tapped it into the net for Leicester. The Foxes ended the half up two goals after a brilliant strike from Danny Drinkwater.

Leicester City went right back to basics against Liverpool. They played in a 4-4-2 style just like last season. Furthermore, Leicester troubled Liverpool defense with accurate deep passes with Vardy at striker.

Liverpool played after a 16 day break. The team looked rusty with only Countinho providing any sort of attack for the Reds. Countinho finally beat a resilient Schmeichel in the 68th minute for a consolation goal for Liverpool.
