Liverpool 2-2 Leicester City: Second-half resurgence sees the Foxes come from behind to rescue a draw

Second-half goals from David Nugent and Jeff Schlupp saw Leicester come from two-nil down to come away with a point against Liverpool at Anfield, reports BBC Sport.

Somewhat against the run of player, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard put the Reds ahead from the spot after 17 minutes, with the home side awarded a contentious penalty for a Wes Morgan handball. Replays showed that it hit the Leicester defender’s face, but Gerrard made the most of the situation by scoring from 12 yards.

Minutes before half-time, and Liverpool were once again given a penalty by referee Mike Jones, who this time penalised Leicester for a handball committed by Danny Simpson. Gerrard made no mistake from the spot-kick, doubling the Reds lead before half-time.

After the break, two goals in as many minutes from David Nugent and Jeff Schlupp saw Leicester level the tie, when it previously looked like Liverpool would see the game out.
