Salah scored twice to save Liverpool

Liverpool survived a 3rd minute scare from Jamie Vardy as Mohamed Salah’s brace helped them beat Leicester City 2-1 to keep their undefeated home run this season intact.

Anfield was in for an early surprise as Foxes broke on the counter to stun the Reds. Jamie Vardy once again got on the scoresheet and Riyad Mahrez once again turned the provider as Leicester got the lead.

Liverpool’s high-flying frontline were continuously frustrated ever since as they had a majority of ball in the opponents’ half but were kept at bay by some serious defending, especially from Wes Morgan.

Minutes after conceding the goal, Salah had a superb chance to equalise as he controlled the ball brilliantly with his first touch. After doing a great job with the toughest part, Salah failed to place it in the goal.

In the 19th minute Sadio Mane, who is still struggling for his best form since making his return from injury, got the ball in the back of the net but was denied by the offside flag. In the very next minute, Salah was once again broken free but his cheep went just past the goal.

The attacks kept increasing and Leicester were defending in numbers, occasionally breaking for counter but nothing happened as the teams went into the break 1-0.

After the restart, the home side further increased the intensity and were finally rewarded. Salah got his 16th League goal of the season amidst a controversy though. The ball looked to have crossed the out line in the build up to the goal before Salah kept it in play. Having built the move, he himself finished as they drew level.

Poor defending in the 76th minute gave Salah his 17th goal of the Premier League, though he could have got plenty of them. No further goals were scored meaning Liverpool reigned supreme with a 2-1 scoreline.
