How it happened

Liverpool's quest for the quadruple took an early blow when Leicester took a 3rd-minute lead through Kacey McAteer.

The Anfield crowd were shocked and it took the hosts a while to get their fluid attacking game going.

Klopp's men dominated the first half but failed to find the equaliser with the Foxes defending resolutely in the face of endless pressure.

Liverpool found a different gear in the second period and Cody Gakpo brought the home team level after finishing off a sweet pass from new signing Ryan Gravenberch.

From then on, the hosts took control of the game. Dominik Szoboszlai scored an absolute stunner to give the Reds a deserved lead and Diogo Jota rounded things off in the final minutes.
