7 minutes of second half madness cost Liverpool at the King Power Stadium as they went down 3-1 to Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester. Liverpool had dominated the contest until that point and lead through Mo Salah’s goal midway through the second half, but then crumbled, just as they had done against Manchester City in the previous game.
Here are the player ratings for the game from the local Echo newspaper.
Liverpool suffered a humbling at the hands of Manchester City, losing 4-1 at Anfield (their third consecutive home league loss). Goalkeeper Alisson Becker had a day to forget with his errors allowing City to take control of the game, and that is reflected in the player ratings for the game from the local Echo paper.
In their eyes, Curtis Jones was the only member of the starting XI worthy of some praise. Jones got a 8/10 rating while Alisson was given just a 2/10.
The first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League Round of 16 tie will now be played at the Budapest Arena in Hungary. Covid regulations in Germany meant that Liverpool would not be allowed entry into Leipzig for their clash on February 16 and the Bundesliga outfit have now chosen the Hungarian capital as the venue for the fixture.
Liverpool’s clash isn’t the only one likely to be re-arranged with Manchester City (v Gladbach), Arsenal (v Benfica) and Chelsea (v Atleti) and Man Utd (v Sociedad) all expected to have to travel to Eastern Europe to fulfill their respective commitments.
