Liverpool gave up another chance to take control of the title race of the Premier League with Leicester earning the draw by 1-1 against the team leading the table. Chelsea, on the other hand, is known to have the bid to finish at the top four as they suffered a humiliating defeat by Bournemouth on 30th January, Wednesday.
After Manchester City who is placed at the second position had been defeated by Newcastle, Liverpool is going to move 7 points ahead at the top of the table to take over Leicester.
However, Jurgen Klopp’s side had been chasing the title of first English league since 1990. They had to settle down for a disappointing draw which got them 5 points ahead of champions, Manchester City.
Klopp gave a statement and said that they have put Leicester under some serious pressure but they had been unlucky with a goal in the last second prior to half time. Liverpool had a training break in Dubai and had been ahead in a 3rd minute at Anfield. Sadio Mane, the winger from Senegal was wriggling through the defense of Leicester and then slotted on to a clinical finish towards the far corner for the 11th goal of the season.
The quickest league goal of Liverpool since April 2016 had the manager singing songs of praise for Rafael Benitez, the former manager who had been responsible for the victory of Newcastle against Manchester City. However, soon Liverpool lost its rhythm.
