Liverpool top four spot upped after defeating Leicester.


Liverpool spiked their spirits high of finishing in top four spot after downing the Foxes 3-0 in last night encounter.

Curtis Jones scored twice in the first half after thrilling double assists from Mohammed Salah.

Trent Alexander-Arnold rounded off another fine performance in his new hybrid role between right-back and midfield with a stunning strike as Liverpool closed to within one point of the top four, assisted again by Salah who was the provider and finish past the helpless Daniel Iversen.

Seven years on from shocking the world to win the Premier league title, Leicester’s Premier League days look numbered as they remain two points from safety with two games remaining.

They face another daunting task in their next encounter when they travel to Newcastle on Monday in a match that could seal their fate should Everton or Leeds win over the weekend.

Liverpool still need a late season collapse from either Newcastle or Manchester United, but a seven-game winning streak from the Reds has upped the pressure on their rivals, who both have three games remaining to Liverpool’s two.
