The players of English champions Leicester City ran riot on Monday night, February 27, as the Foxes thrashed Liverpool 3 – 1 at the King Power Stadium.
Barely three days since the exit of their manager Claudio Ranieri, Jamie Vardy’s two brilliant goals as well as Danny Drinkwater’s strike seems to have confirmed rumours that some players in the team might have actually met with the owners of the club to fire their former manager Ranieri.
Vardy opened the scoring in the 27th minute from a one-on-one occasion and placed the ball at the near post, leaving Mignolet with no chance in goal.
The Foxes doubled their lead six minutes to the end of the first half when Danny Drinkwater powered home a volley from about 25yards-out, to send strong signals the champions mean business, before Vardy headed home the third on the hour mark.
Liverpool managed to pull one back by Phillipe Coutinho. It ended; Leicester City 3 – 1 Liverpool.
The defending champions now move up to 15th on the log with 24 points from 26 matches, while Liverpool slip to 5th position on the table with 49 points from 26 games.
Chelsea lead the pack 63 points, 10 more than second placed Tottenham. Manchester City who have a game in hand are third with 52 points.
Jurgen Klopp's now face another stern test in their next game on March 4 when the host Arsenal. Leicester host Hull City on the same day.
