Leicester City overcame Liverpool at the king power stadium by scoring three goals in seven minutes after being a goal down.
Liverpool dominated the first-half which ended goalless after Roberto firmino had his efforts twice saved by Kasper schmeichel while Jamie vardy unfortunately struck the crossbar in Leicester’s most potent chance of the half.
Liverpool eventually went in front in the 67th minute through a Mohamed Salah sidefooted finish, bringing his total tally of the season to 17 goals, the most recent assisted by a delicate backheel from Roberto Firmino.
With 12 minutes of normal time remaining, James Madison pulled his side level with a free-kick from the side of the box after VAR ruled out a previous offside decision.
Defensive mishap once again caused Liverpool, as a careless mix-up between Allison and Ozan Kabak led Jamie Vardy pounce onto the ball and score into an open net.
The foxes put the game out of sight with 5 minutes to go, when Wilfred Ndidi slid in a pass for Harvey Barnes to latch unto, which he did, scoring the final goal of the match.
Leicester move up to second place on 46 points while Liverpool continue to lose ground on the title chase staying fourth and six points behind the foxes.
