Liverpool moved to within a point of Premier League leaders Manchester City with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

Curtis Jones scored twice in the first half to put the Reds in control before Trent Alexander-Arnold added a third in the second half.

The win keeps Liverpool’s hopes of winning the Premier League alive, while Leicester’s relegation fears deepened.

Liverpool started the game brightly and took the lead in the 17th minute. Mohamed Salah played superb through ball to Jones, who raced clear and slotted the ball past Daniel Iversen.

The Reds doubled their lead just three minutes later. Salah was again involved, this time crossing for Jones to head home from close range.

Leicester had a chance to pull a goal back in the 35th minute, but Kelechi Iheanacho’s shot was saved by Alisson Becker.

The Foxes continued to press after the break, but Liverpool held firm and sealed the win in the 78th minute. Alexander-Arnold curled a superb free kick into the top corner from 25 yards out.

The win was Liverpool’s seventh in a row in all competitions, and it keeps them in contention for the Premier League title. Leicester, meanwhile, remains in the relegation zone and will need to start picking up points soon if they are to avoid the drop.

Here are some of the key takeaways from the game:

  • Liverpool were clinical in front of goal, scoring three times from their three shots on target.

  • Leicester were poor in front of goal, failing to create any clear-cut chances.
