Superb Liverpool go 13 points clear at top of Premier League with dominant victory at Leicester
Two goals from Roberto Firmino, a James Milner’s penalty and a delicious Trent Alexander-Arnold strike sees the Reds go 13 points clear at the top of the table.
The visitors could have scored more as they lacked composure in the final third for large parts of the game.
Before three strikes in three second-half minutes produced a scoreline which fairly reflected the balance of play.
The game’s standout player was Reds right-back Alexander-Arnold, who played a major role in all four Liverpool goals.
The Reds could have been a bit rusty as they’ve just come back from their Club World Cup success 3,000 miles away in Qatar. Not this team though.
They produced their most complete performance of the season so far, dominating the talented Foxes side from start to finish.

It’s no exaggeration that Leicester could have been 3-0 down inside the first ten minutes – Alexander-Arnold firing a swerving shot straight at Kapser Schmeichel after 36 seconds, while Mohamed Salah was wasteful in front of goal twice.
Leicester could not deal with Liverpool’s high press and nearly gave away the lead on 14 minutes when Firmino’s tackle on Wilfred Ndidi fell to Henderson and the midfielder’s effort deflected just wide.
