Leicester v Liverpool - story of the match

Simon Mignolet saved Jamie Vardy's penalty as a 3-2 victory saw Liverpool end a four-match winless run despite further defensive wobbles at Leicester.

Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho gave the visitors a 2-0 lead which was halved by Shinji Okazaki's goal, where he appeared to impede Reds goalkeeper Mignolet.

Jordan Henderson restored the two-goal lead before Mignolet gifted Vardy a goal before saving a penalty which he had conceded for a foul on the striker.

TWEET OF THE MATCH

"Such a shame Coutinho didn't b****r off to Barcelona," - Match of the Day presenter and former Leicester and Everton striker Gary Lineker (@garylineker)
