Leicester beat Liverpool 2-0, other EPL results

In a game that Liverpool led possession on 64% and 12 corner kicks as against Leicester’s 3, one can imagine the determination on Klopp’s charges but that was not enough to stop the individual brilliance of Jamie Vardy who scored twice as the Foxes beat Liverpool 2-0 to stay three points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Leicester's title challenge is clear in the Premier League age and victory after the other, they move closer to winning their first ever top-flight title.

In the next two weeks, they meet Manchester City and Arsenal who are all contenders at the top. Many thought Liverpool could lead the party poopers of Leicester City’s onslaught on the title.

Ranieri’s men passed the first of those three tests in style as they disposed off Liverpool 2-0 at the King Power stadium.

Vardy caught Mignolet off guard with 25-yard half-volley as he sent a right footed shot from outside the box to the top right corner after a classic assist by Riyad Mahrez with a through ball in the 60 minute.

It really was a stunner with his goal-of-the-season contender and then added a second 11 minutes later.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri said: "Amazing. The first goal was unbelievable. Jamie is very fast and can create a lot but it was unbelievable how Mahrez found him and how he had the time to see the keeper out of the goal and score a fantastic goal."

For now, Leicester can be said to have arrived and their EPL title challenge is real.
