FT

FULL-TIME!

Liverpool hold on to claim the three points in an enthralling, topsy-turvy match. It was a shambolic defensive performance from the Reds, but they somehow get away with it.

90'+5 

Oxlade-Chamberlain gives a needless free-kick away and Leicester can pump a free-kick into the Liverpool penalty area....

90'+4 

Liverpool have the ball where they want it and they are now only moments from picking up their first win in five games...

Vardy's frustrations get the better of him as he goes into the book for a foul on Moreno.

90' 

There is indeed FIVE minutes of added time to play.

89' 

Chilwell launches a long throw-in into Liverpool's penalty area but Gray commits a foul and the visitors survive... for now.

87' 

There could be up to five minutes of additional time to be played at the end of this contest. The nerves amongst the travelling support is palpable.

85' 

A 20-yard right-footed effort from Wijnaldum goes inches wide of the post as Liverpool search for their fourth of an enthralling game.

83' 

A splendid cross from Vardy from the right picks out Slimani at the near post but the substitute heads wide. Wouldn't have counted as the referee spotted a foul.

Leicester have seven minutes plus injury time to find an equaliser.

81' 

Sturridge has been a handful since he was introduced. He is hungry for his 100th club goal as he forces Schmeichel into a smart save with a shot from 20 yards.

73' 

Mignolet has now saved five of his last eight penalties he has faced, but Leicester will be questioning if the Belgian should even be on the pitch.

72'

VARDY'S SPOT-KICK IS SAVED!

Vardy sends the ball straight down the middle and Mignolet makes the save! It is a really poor penalty.

53' 

Shakespeare's side are playing with a lot more belief; that goal on the stroke of half-time has lifted their spirits.

52'

Clumsy football from Liverpool as they lose the ball as they attempt to play out from the back. Vardy is subsequently played through but he is a mile offside.

51' 

Chilwell is back on his feet after receiving some treatment.

50' 

Leicester fans unhappy as Anthony Taylor keeps his cards in his pocket as Gomez fouls Chilwell in an aerial challenge.

47' 

Mahrez, now operating more centrally for Leicester, is well challenged by Matip. Craig Shakespeare will be expecting more from the Algeria international in the second period.

HALF-TIME

Liverpool's two-goal lead is halved right on the stroke of half-time as they concede yet another goal from a set-piece, although they had a strong case for a foul on Mignolet.

An enthralling first half ends Leicester 1-2 Liverpool.

44' 

Two minutes will be played at the end of the first half.

42' 

CHANCE FOR LIVERPOOL!

Firmino charges down the left, drilling a ball across the face of goal. Coutinho looks to run onto it, but just can't grow enough to make the connection.

39'

GOAL STRUCK OFF!

Maguire knocks down a free-kick delivery for Okazaki who finishes well. However, the linesman has his flag up for offside.

He may have been played on by Henderson, the replays show.

37' 

The space opens up Mahrez on the right to deliver a cross, he has plenty of options inside the Liverpool box, but he over-cooks his cross as the ball flies over the bar.

35' 

Matip goes in late on Vardy but the ref plays the advantage played, allowing Chilwell to try his luck with a half-volley but it is a straight forward save from Mignolet.

Matip rises highest to Moreno's cross but his header is straight into the arms of Schmeichel.

Sums up Coutinho, doesn't it?

27' 

Maguire loves playing football in defence, but he almost runs into trouble as Salah closes him down. Fortunately, for Leicester, he gets a toe in to play the ball back to Schmeichel.

26' 

Mahrez, who must be reeling from that earlier missed opportunity, is fouled by Moreno and Leicester have a free-kick around 30 yards out.

25' 

Two goals ahead but Liverpool are hungry for a third as Moreno attempts a cross but it's blocked by Simpson for a corner.

The set-piece comes to nothing though.

Almost a costly error in the Liverpool defensive line as Mignolet takes too much time to clear a back pass. His clearance is blocked by Vardy, the loose ball falls into the path of Okazaki but his shot is blocked by the 'keeper and Leicester have a corner.

A pinpoint cross from Countinho picks out Salah at the back post and the forward heads in from the tightest of angles!

Schmeichel should have done better, but it's still a remarkable finish.

14'

Albrighton swings a lovely cross in from deep, picking out Okazaki but the Leicester forward can't direct his header on target. Wouldn't have counted though, he was offside.

12'

WHAT A MISS!

A great strike from Can rattles the post, the ball comes out to Salah who is left with a simple finish but, with an empty goal to aim at, he somehow puts the ball wide! You would have put your house on him to score!

9' 

The Reds have dominated possession, according to the stats, but the hosts won't care one bit. Their game-plan is clear, to sit deep and hope to catch Liverpool cold on the counter-attack.

8' 

With Man City, Man United, Tottenham and Chelsea all winning earlier, the pressure on Klopp to deliver a first victory in four games this evening is even greater than it would normally be.

7' 

Leicester do well to defend Henderson's first-time deep cross, but concede a corner. Coutinho's delivery is straight into the arms of Schmeichel, though.

5' 

Poor defending from Liverpool (far from the first time I have written that recently) as Okazaki releases Vardy in space on the left. The England international charges towards goal but can't beat Mignolet from a tight angle.

Mahrez shoots over from the rebound.

5' 

3' 

Poor defending from Leicester as Can is given far too much time on the channel. He sees his first two crosses blocked, but he gets a third attempt which he sends too close to Schmeichel.

2' 

Leicester will be delighted to have Jamie Vardy starting this evening. The England international missed the midweek game through injury but has passed a late fitness test to play today.
