Leicester 2 – Liverpool 3
Liverpool’s 3-2 win at Leicester was widely described as “a great advert for the Premier League”.
It was undoubtedly a roller coaster match and Leicester can count themselves hugely unlucky that they failed to bag something from the game.
A hugely entertaining fixture looked to be going Liverpool’s way after they scored two first half goals via Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho.
Shinji Okazaki pulled one back before half-time but Jordan Henderson looked to have won it on a fine Liverpool breakaway.
Simon Mignolet summed up in one incident
After Leicester had made it 3-2, thanks to a Jamie Vardy header, following a Simon Mignolet parry, the Foxes then had a great chance to draw level.
Simon Mignolet brought down Jamie Vardy and may have been fortunate only to give away a penalty.
Had the Belgian keeper been sent off, which many pundits called for after the game, Liverpool would have been in real trouble.
Mignolet spared his own blushes by making a fine save and since then a number of analysts have claimed credit for the stop.
Vardy has constantly put his recent penalties straight at the goalkeeper, and Mignolet had clearly done his homework.
Simon Mignolet’s penalty save v Jamie Vardy gets a hilarious soundtrack
As one of the incidents of the Premier League weekend, Men In Blazers have mocked up the penalty with a Zombie Nation style soundtrack.
The clip is great from start to finish, thanks to the music. It really improves when Jurgen Klopp pulls out his punching celebration after Mignolet’s save.
Liverpool play against Spartak Moscow on Tuesday night in the Champions League.
It seems likely that Loris Karius will play in goal for Liverpool, as he did in the first Champions League match of Liverpool’s season, against Sevilla.
