Liverpool’s first goal came just after the half an hour mark when Trent Alexander Arnold’s cross was met by Brazilain striker by Roberto Firmino who fired past the goalkeeper.

However, after conceding the goal, Leicester City closed themselves in the first half and didn’t allow Liverpool to create further inroads in the next 15 minutes.

Leicester City, in search of a goal, started the second half on a high tempo. However, to much their avail, they couldn’t find the back of the net even though they created the chances. Sensing a break, Liverpool attacked Leicester’s territory again and gained the corner.

In a mix, Caglar Soyuncu was awarded a card for the handball and Liverpool, a penalty. Milner converted the penalty in a cool manner before Firmino scored his the second goal of the night for the Reds.

Already impressing the fans by his stellar double assists, Trent Alexander Arnold capped of his night by adding a goal to his tally. He rocketed the ball into the corner of the net which was assisted by Sadio Mane. Trent Alexander Arnold was left unmarked by the Leicester City defenders for which they were made to pay a huge price by scoring the fourth goal of the night.
