Coutinho Shines As Liverpool Sink Leicester

English Premier League Report: Leicester City v Liverpool 23 September 2017

By SL International - Sep 23, 2017 08:26 PM

English Premier League

Result: Leicester City 2-3 Liverpool

Date: 23 September 2017

Venue: King Power Stadium

Philippe Coutinho bagged a goal and an assist to inspire Liverpool to a 3-2 win over Leicester City on Saturday evening.

The Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet was called into action as early as the fifth minute, denying Shinji Okazaki at close range following a break attack. 
 
Mohamed Salah opened the scoring in the 15th minute with a close header at the far post following an exquisite cross from Philippe Coutinho, 0-1.  
 
Coutinho made it 2-0 in style in the 23rd minute bending a laser free-kick that dipped over the wall and into the back of the net.
 
After 36 minutes the Foxes were showing signs of coming back, pressurising Jurgen Klopp's charges deep in their own half.  
 
Okazaki reduced the deficit to 2-1 in the third and last minute of stoppage time in the first-half after goalkeeper Mignolet could not collect a cross and the Japanese striker poked home from close range in an empty net.
 
Emre Can had a good chance in the 58th minute of the match with a header at the far post but his effort sailed over the bar. 
 
Jordan Henderson made it 3-1 in the 67th minute following a quick counter attack, finishing in the centre of the box with a low shot past Mignolet. 
 
Two minutes later, Jamie Vardy reduced the deficit to 3-2 against the run of play. 
 
Moments later Vardy was handed a penalty after being fouled by Mignolet inside the area. The English striker missed from the penalty spot, hitting the ball straight at Mignolet who made the save.
 
After the 85th minute Klopp's charges were in control of the match, constantly in attack keeping City in their own half. 
 
The visitors in the end clinched a hard-fought victory to return to winning ways.

Leicester cheated for both their goals. Okazaki held Mignolet's arm and pulled it back. That is not just the usual effort that many teams make, to get in the way of the goalkeeper and block his movement. It was a snide, deliberate foul for which he should obviously have been penalized. And then, Vardy stuck his left leg out into Matip's stride and went down for the free kick that led to their second goal. It was a dive, and another piece of snide cheating and gamesmanship. These aren't just fouls like you get in the normal run of play, with mistimed tackles and emotional reactions. This is blatant cheating, and it's a bad thing to see.
