Liverpool’s performance was extremely mixed as they beat Leicester City 2-1 on Saturday afternoon to remain top of the Premier League.

The Reds earned a two-goal lead by the break thanks to Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, but an Alisson error after half-time gave the Foxes a route back into the match.

Jurgen Klopp‘s men stood resolute to see out the game and seal the three points, meaning they’ll be top of the Premier League across the international break by virtue of goal difference.

It was an up-and-down display from Liverpool at the King Power, with an early burst allowing Mane to capitalise, before Firmino’s decisive stoppage-time header, and then a struggle in the second half.

Holding on for all three points was certainly a positive, but the manner of the Reds’ win could be seen as a concern.
