Liverpool beat Leicester City 3-0 on Sunday.

The Reds broke multiple records over the weekend as now hold the longest unbeaten streak at Anfield with 63 games, while Diogo Jota has now scored in his first four home league games.

A Jonny Evans own goal opened things up, before Jota nodded home a superb Andy Robertson cross. Roberto Firmino put the icing on the cake by heading in a well-taken corner.

Prior to his goal, Firmino was guilty of missing several chances and patience was starting to wear a little thin. However, he was somewhat unlucky and was 10mm away from scoring before the ball was hacked away from the Foxes line.

Liverpool are now joint top of the league with Tottenham Hotspur on 20 points, however Spurs do have a superior goal difference. The clean sheet was the Reds’ second of the season, and comes as three of the regular four defenders missed the game through injury.

However, Alisson Becker was aggressive when called upon – and although he was largely consigned to the role of watchful spectator – the Brazilian still needed to be sharp and hustled to extinguish a few moments of danger.

Leicester didn’t really muster many clear-cut chances but they could have done better with the few they created, while Klopp will be delighted that Jamie Vardy wasn’t given any space and time to attack Joel Matip or Fabinho.

This win was an excellent one, especially given all the injuries. So let’s take a look and see three things we learned from the game.
