El Liverpool He finally said goodbye to the Premier League when he lost a game that he was winning and in which six fatal minutes, in which they received three goals, buried his options before a Leicester launched for the Champions League (3-1).
The ‘Reds’, who had advanced after a great goal from Mohamed Salah in the second half, they had already flirted with danger and Jamie Vardy had missed two hands-to-hands in the first half, one of them crashing him off the crossbar.
But disaster for Jrgen Klopp came in two fateful minutes for them. First a foul outside the area that the VAR checked was not inside. James Maddison He bottled it and went straight inside, without anyone ever touching it.
He both killed Liverpool, who a minute later saw rookie Ozan Kabak and Alisson they did a terrible thing when they tried to cut a Liverpool long ball, leaving Vardy without a goalkeeper to mark an empty goalkeeper.
To finish the job, Harvey Barnes he counterattacked the third, squandering Liverpool’s options to reengage in the fight for the Premier. In total, in six minutes they fell three goals to Klopp’s team that leaves them 10 points behind Manchester City with two more games.
In return, Leicester climbs to second position, where it is placed with 46 units, four from City, but with two more games.
Is the third loss in a row Liverpool, who arrived after not playing in the FA Cup, in which they are eliminated. Klopp’s men have lost four of the last six games and have three wins in the last eleven games.
