Three days before the Champions League match against the German top club RB Leipzig, the crisis at English football champions FC Liverpool worsened with the next defeat in the Premier League. At Leicester City, the “Reds” lost a lead on Saturday and lost 1: 3 (0: 0) in the end. It was already the third league defeat in a row for Liverpool and a major setback in the race for the Champions League places.
The guests also had to complain about injuries again. James Milner had to be replaced early on in the game. Ex-Bayern professional Thiago came for him. Liverpool’s new signing Ozan Kabak, who came from FC Schalke in winter, made his debut in Leicester because the ailing Fabinho was not available.
Alisson’s next mistake
Madisson’s goal was initially whistled for an alleged offside position, but according to video evidence it counted. At Vardy’s goal, Liverpool keeper Alisson, who had two serious blunders in the 4-1 home defeat against Manchester City last week, did not look good again.
The keeper had run too far out of the gate and apparently had not discussed it with Kabak.
The reason is the British travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
