FT: Leicester 3-1 Liverpool


Liverpool defender Andy Robertson said their 3-1 loss to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday was a “huge blow” to the Premier League champions.


Liverpool took the lead through Mohamed Salah, who broke the deadlock in the 67th minute with a curling strike but the homeside responded late in the game with three goals within seven minutes, prompting the Merseyside club to collapse dramatically at the King Power.


It was was James Madison, Jamie Vardy, and Harvey Barnes who helped the Foxes secure the three points in a game Liverpool dominated for 75 minutes.


However, Scotland's full-back Robertson said the Reds played into the hands of their opponents and they need to put an end to their recent woes.


Liverpool currently sit in the final Champions League place with the likes of Spurs, Everton, Chelsea, and Aston Villa all looking to leapfrog Klopp’s boys for the fourth spot.


While speaking to BT Sport following the game in East Midlands, Robertson said: "A huge blow, you can say that. For large parts of the game, we were dominant, and then that's not us out there. One setback - we've been so good at bouncing back and staying in the game but we were opened up and we played into their hands.


“We were 2-1 down with 15 minutes to go but we opened completely up. When that happens against a really good Leicester team you will get punished.


"We played with a lot of confidence for large parts of the game - played the ball really well.


“Then I don't know what happened in the last 10-15 minutes. It can't happen in a game like this. We really need to look at that. Every game is massive for us now. We need to put an end to it.”
