Leicester 0-3 Liverpool LIVE! Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today

Curtis Jones’ double pushed Leicester to the brink of relegation as Liverpool cruised to a 3-0 win - two years to the day since the Foxes’ FA Cup triumph.

The midfielder’s first-half brace and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s stunner eased the visitors to victory as the hosts capitulated to leave them staring at the drop.

That it came on the anniversary of their first ever FA Cup win underlined the 2016 Premier League champions’ fall from grace.

Harvey Barnes called it one of the biggest games in the club’s history, but Leicester folded to remain two points from safety with two games left.

The Foxes have sleepwalked into this position. Stricter finances dictated last summer’s quiet transfer window, but the club stood still and have paid the price.

An air of acceptance had begun to descend on the King Power Stadium and, even before the Reds marched in to claim three easy points, the writing appeared on the wall.

For Liverpool, they moved to within a point of Manchester United as their late charge for the top four continued.

A seventh straight win - the most painless by far - kept them on United’s coattails, although they will need to maintain their form and hope their rivals slip up.

There was never any suggestion of a surprise on Monday, though, as Leicester surrendered.

Even prior to kick-off the Foxes had lost Danny Ward, Caglar Soyuncu and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to injury.

That forced Dean Smith to give Jonny Evans a first Premier League start since October, showing the desperation in a dire situation.

Leicester needed a strong start and were bright enough. James Maddison’s arrowed pass and Youri Tielemans’ dummy sent Barnes away, only for Alisson Becker to smother the danger when Jamie Vardy broke through.

Yet their early gusto waned as Liverpool bossed possession before turning on the afterburners as the hosts fell apart.

Alisson’s long clearance found Luis Diaz to nod down for Jordan Henderson. He teed up Mohamed Salah to cross for Jones to steal in ahead of the dawdling Boubakary Soumare and find the far corner for a 33rd-minute opener.

Just three minutes later the England Under-21 international doubled the lead, following a lengthy VAR check, when he collected Salah’s pass and was given the freedom to turn and rifle past Daniel Iversen.

It was the midfielder’s third goals in four games, having ended an 18-month drought against Tottenham last month.

It was mayhem and Leicester, with just one win in their previous 13 games, collapsed as Iversen needed to deny Cody Gakpo a quickfire third.

Desperate for a response, the Foxes at least came out for the second half swinging and Alisson tipped Barnes’ effort wide.

That was as good as it got, though, as Liverpool slipped back into their controlled rhythm, with Iversen beating Salah’s shot away.

It was then curtains with 19 minutes left when, after Evans fouled Henderson, Salah tapped a free-kick to Alexander-Arnold to blast into the top corner from 25 yards.

Salah shot wide when clean through but, by then, the King Power had begun to empty as quickly as the hope drained from Leicester, who look doomed.

After a sluggish opening, Jones broke the deadlock in the 33rd minute with a superb first-time finish from Mohamed Salah’s cross after Leicester’s high defensive line was caught out by a long ball over the top from Liverpool keeper Alisson.

FT: Leicester 0-3 Liverpool

21:54 , Jonathan Gorrie

A Jones brace and a stunner from Alexander-Arnold has Liverpool on the cusp of the top four, while Leicester look bound for the Championship.

Alexander-Arnold has been brilliant tonight

21:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

83 mins: Goal aside, the England man has been brilliant on the ball and when called upon to defend tonight.

All in front of Gareth Southgate too...

78 mins: Salah through for a 1v1 but....misses the target completely?

GOAL! Leicester 0-3 Liverpool | Trent Alexander-Arnold ‘70

21:31 , Jonathan Gorrie

70 mins: An absolutely world class free-kick from Alexander-Arnold.

Salah lays it off the open up the angle and the England fires a vicious shot into the top corner.

Leicester going down with a whimper

21:29 , Jonathan Gorrie

68 mins: Hardly even threatened since that Barnes shot, their only chance of the game.

This is an utter stroll for Liverpool.

Tempo dips

21:15 , Jonathan Gorrie

55 mins: Leicester haven’t been able to build on that Barnes shot at all. Liverpool look in very little danger of being dragged into an end-to-end tussle.

All feels rather meek from the home side.


21:12 , Jonathan Gorrie

51 mins: Nice interplay fom Vardy and Tielemans on the edge of the box frees Barnes to shoot at goal, with Alisson forced into a finger tip save.

Promising signs at least!

Tidy on the ball but nothing doing up front

21:09 , Jonathan Gorrie

48 mins: On the ball, Leicester do not look like a team fighting relegation.

Off of it, however, it’s a real mess. There’s so little movement up front and even bigger problems in defence.

Such a strange team to watch.

Back underway!

21:06 , Jonathan Gorrie

Can Leicester find a way back into this? Seems very unlikely...

Quite the performance so far

20:59 , Jonathan Gorrie

Who said Liverpool needed a whole new midfield?!

Very very bleak for Leicester

20:55 , Jonathan Gorrie

Where on earth do they go from here? A comeback seems remote at best and they will be two points off safety with only two games left.

HT: Leicester 0-2 Liverpool

20:50 , Jonathan Gorrie

Jones has the Reds in the driving seat with the Foxes booed off at the break.

Leicester fans booing

20:42 , Jonathan Gorrie

Home fans are now booing.

Lovely touch and turn after a ball from Salah sees Jones rifle a half-volley past Iversen.

The goal stands!

GOAL! Leicester 0-1 Liverpool | Curtis Jones ‘32

20:34 , Jonathan Gorrie

32 mins: It’s been coming.

One long ball from Alisson isn’t cleared by Faes, who loses his bearings and lets the ball bounce. Henderson then plays it to Salah, who picks out Jones at the back post.

Terrible shot from Diaz

20:29 , Jonathan Gorrie

28 mins: The Colombian gets in-behind the backline and drives into the box but drags a truly awful shot wide.

Klopp is furious he didn’t square to Salah.

Crazy from Jonny Evans

20:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

24 mins: Tries to taking it round onrushing Liverpool players in his own box.

Not what you need in a relegation scrap.

Maddison trying to do too much

20:23 , Jonathan Gorrie

22 mins: That’s a few times now he’s been caught dawdling on the ball, taking an extra touch when its not needed.

Now Liverpool are closing in

20:22 , Jonathan Gorrie

21 mins: Klopp’s side starting to grow now. Leicester are camped in their own penalty box, which will hardly do much to assure their supporters.

Liverpool not yet at the races

20:18 , Jonathan Gorrie

17 mins: The Reds have started slowly here, struggling to get much going in attack.

Hopeful balls up to Salah far too often.

Half chance for Leicester

20:14 , Jonathan Gorrie

12 mins: Lovely ball from Maddison finds Barnes, who takes too many touches before playing it to Vardy, who sees his shot well covered by Alisson.

Still, something to shout about at least.

Leicester grafting

20:11 , Jonathan Gorrie

09 mins: Much, much better from last week at Fulham.

You feel as if Liverpool have another gear to go into but Leicester aren’t giving them a moment to relax and are constantly looking to get in-behind.

Positive Leicester start

20:06 , Jonathan Gorrie

04 mins: Lovely ball in from Maddison but its well cleared.

Really positive start from the hosts.


20:01 , Jonathan Gorrie

Away we go!

Teams almost out!

19:55 , Jonathan Gorrie

You can feel how nervous the Leicester crowd are. Seven years after winning the Premier League, they could well be heading to the Championship.

Jordan Henderson’s pre-match message

19:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

The Liverpool skipper wants the Reds to match Leicester for intensity.

Given their performance at Fulham last week, that shouldn’t be too hard...

An absolutely huge game

19:24 , Jonathan Gorrie

Win here and Liverpool are within one point of the top four after a stunning run of form. Still, they surely need to win all of their games to keep up and have little margin for error.

Anything other than a victory for Leicester, meanwhile, would see them on the brink of relegation.

Gary Neville warns FSG over Jurgen Klopp

18:39 , Jonathan Gorrie

The Sky Sports pundit wants Liverpool’s owners to spend big this summer.

“Jurgen Klopp has got to be supported,” he said.

“He was supported when they fell short by being able to push themselves in the transfer market, they’ll have to go there again this summer.

“Other teams are going to invest, Klopp’s strength over the last six or seven years has been the quality of football but also the strength of recruitment, he’s been able to get the most out of players, who ultimately haven’t cost stupid amounts, Van Dijk, Allison and Nunez aside.

Leicester must hold off Liverpool’s fast start

18:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

Leicester will need to be weary from the off as Liverpool have scored 11 goals in the first 15 minutes of matches, with only Aston Villa starting matches faster. Leicester are also most likely to concede in the first 15 minutes of matches, having conceded 12 times in the opening 15 minutes already this season, the 3rd highest in the Premier League, behind Tottenham and Bournemouth.

Liverpool score just over half their goals in the second half of matches (35/67), but are in fact most deadly in the 15 minutes before half time, and only Brentford have scored more goals in the 15 minute window before half time of matches.

Liverpool will also be weary of Leicester’s goal scoring threat from the outset, as they are a stronger 1st half side, scoring 57.13% of their 49 goals in the 1st half of matches this season, with their most fruitful period also the 15 minutes before half time where they’ve netted 14 times this season.

Liverpool are also most vulnerable in the first 15 minutes of matches where they have let 9 goals in this season, so keeping a tight ship will serve The Reds well, especially as they’ve only conceded 7 times in the final 15 minutes of matches. Only Chelsea and Newcastle have conceded less, on 6.

The key match-up will surely be Leicester’s top scorer Harvey Barnes taking on offensively-minded Trent Alexander-Arnold. Liverpool have conceded 19 goals from open play down their right-hand side, compared to just 13 on their left, proving to be the most vulnerable area on the pitch for Liverpool this season.

Jurgen Klopp addresses rumours linking Liverpool with Alexis Mac Allister

18:20 , Jonathan Gorrie

Jurgen Klopp insists there is nothing to report on Liverpool’s reported chase of Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister.

Ahead of what is expected to be a major rebuild at Anfield this summer, the Argentine World Cup winner has strongly been linked with a move to the Merseyside giants.

After pulling out of a move for Jude Bellingham, Mac Allister – who has previously been of interest to Chelsea too – has been touted as a major £70m target.

The player’s father has already admitted his son will “likely” move on from Brighton at the end of the season after a productive four-year spell on the south coast.

Arsenal and Liverpool handed transfer boost over Caicedo and Mac Allister

17:51 , Jonathan Gorrie

Arsenal and Liverpool appear to have been boosted in their respective transfer pursuits of star Brighton duo Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister.

The South American pair have been absolutely instrumental in the Seagulls’ incredible rise this term under first Graham Potter and then managerial successor Roberto De Zerbi, each being midfield mainstays and Caicedo even demonstrating his valuable versatility of late as a makeshift right-back.

But their form certainly has not gone unnoticed by Premier League rivals, with Mac Allister committing himself to Brighton in January after winning the World Cup with Argentina and Caicedo extending his contract despite being unhappy at being denied a dream £70million move to title challengers Arsenal.

Prediction: Liverpool to win 3-0

17:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

The Foxes are enduring a rather tame fall into the Championship but, as Liverpool well know, this is the time of year when surprise results come out of nowehere.

Or, as the case may be, when clubs heading downwards collapse yet further against a ruthless rival.

Liverpool to win, 3-0.

Kelechi Iheanacho is the main focus of Leicester’s efforts as he looks to return from a groin injury.

Jannik Vestergaard, Ryan Bertrand and James Justin will all miss out and interim boss Dean Smith may bring Wilfred Ndidi back into his lineup after shipping five goals at Fulham last time out.
