Coutinho stunner and Vardy penalty miss sees Foxes lose to Reds

They had beaten a second string Liverpool side 2-0 in midweek Cup action, but Leicester City were unable to produce an encore in their league fixture between the two sides over the weekend, slumping to a 3-2 loss at the King Power Stadium.

Philippe Coutinho seemed to put his summer transfer saga behind him after setting up Mo Salah for the opener and then scoring his first goal of the season with a cracking free kick.

Okazaki, who had also netted in the midweek Cup tie, gave Leicester hope by pulling one back before Henderson restored Liverpool’s 2 goal lead. Jamie Vardy made it 3-2, and had a great chance to make it 3-3, but shot his penalty tamely at Mignolet, meaning that Leicester’s league struggles continue, with just one and a draw in six games.
