Days after their hard-fought Champions League win against RB Salzburg, Liverpool returned to Anfield on Saturday but this time, playing in the Premier League. On Matchday 8 of the domestic competition, the Reds received the good Leicester, who are 3rd place, and won 2-1. Sadio Mane and James Milner, scoring a late 95th-minute goal, score for the Reds, while James Maddison discounted for the Foxes. With the victory, Liverpool keeps up their 100% campaign so far in the English Premier League, with 24 points.

It was not easy, and no one really thought it would be. Leicester is always a hard side to play against, especially due to Jamie Vardy, who just loves to score against Big-6 clubs. So, once more, Anfield played an important role in supporting the Reds.

Liverpool played way better than Leicester in the first half. Mohamed Salah and Mane had great opportunities during the first few minutes but failed to score. The match remained goalless until the 40th minute, as Milner picked out Mane from his defensive half, as the Senegalese powered to the Leicester area to fire home past the onrushing Kasper Schmeichel. 1-0 Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers’s side did not have a single shot on target during the whole first half, such was the dominance from the hosts.

The Reds kept on with the control of the match in the second half and had good chances once again wasted by Salah. On Leicester’s first attempt on goal, they found the nets. On 80 minutes, Ayoze Perez found Maddison, who got the ball in front of Adrian and slotted through the legs of the Spanish keeper. 1-1.

It looked like the game was heading for a 1-1 draw, but a “lucky” move with 94 on the clock changed the game. Marc Albrighton fouled Mane inside the box, as the referee pointed to the penalty spot. The play was checked on the VAR, who confirmed the pen. James Milner, the man who got ice on his nerves stepped up, and sent Schmeichel to the wrong side, making it 2-1 Liverpool.

What a way to win a match. Some may say it wasn’t a pen, but I see it as a matter of interpretation. Both sides will have a break of two weeks off Football due to the international break.
