Leicester City 1-3 Liverpool: Second-half surge sees the Reds overcome 10-man Leicester at the King Power stadium

Liverpool came from behind to record consecutive Premier League victories, courtesy of questionable Leicester defending and a costly red card, reports BBC Sport.

The hosts took the lead in the 22nd minute through a Simon Mignolet own goal. Leicester striker Leonardo Ulloa struck an effort under the Belgian shot-stopper, which hit the post and bounce of Mignolet into the back of the net.

But the Reds took minutes to fight back, and it was Adam Lallana’s fierce low effort from close range that did the trick before the half hour mark. Both sides went into the break level, but the drama was yet to come.

A weak Wes Morgan clearance from a cross saw the onrushing Steve Gerrard slot home from inside the area as Liverpool turned the game on its head. Morgan was then red carded for a last-man foul, denying a goalscoring opportunity, before Jordan Henderson wrapped up the game with Liverpool’s third goal of the night.
