Liverpool won the lead within two minutes before Leicester had barely touched the ball when Sadio Mane made a good pass into the box and landed low in the bottom corner.
Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel saved well after some incredible control Roberto Firmino saw the Brazilian make way for a shot. And Mane made a long shot when he should have been better off the resulting corner.
A poor pass from Alisson put Jordan Henderson at risk for right-backs, and he was lucky enough to miss a penalty for James Maddison. Though iterations showed it was out of the box anyway.
Liverpool controlled the ball and Xherdan Shaqiri almost broke through, but Alisson almost opened again.

Andrew Robertson sprayed a magnificent pass to Mane just before half-time, but Harry Maguire pulled him back around the center line and only managed to escape with a booking. Because he was the last man.
And Maguire let Liverpool pay with the Equailer in the second half of the first half of injury time. With the free-kick unanswered, Ben Chilwell's ball was returned to the Liverpool area, and Maguire appeared behind the defense to steal home.

Liverpool conceded a penalty Naby Keita crashed into the box and was ousted by Ricardo before he could shoot, but the referee did not whistle.
Demarai Gray had a golden chance, but drew directly against Alisson and not a square Maddison.
At the other end, Firmino's quick feet opened some space, but as in the first half, he fired on flatterer who rescued well.
