Liverpool demolished Leicester City 4-0 at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on Thursday to take a commanding 13-point lead in the English Premier League.
It was a memorable night for Trent Alexander-Arnold, who provided Roberto Firmino with the assists for his goals in the 31st and 74th minutes, before converting for himself in the 78th. Substitute James Milner converted Liverpool’s other goal from the penalty spot in the 71st.
Liverpool was in a different class than Leicester, who are second in the points standings and were looking to reduce the deficit between themselves and the league leaders.
It wasn’t to be as Leicester wilted under the constant pressure of Liverpool with Alexander-Arnold crossing from the left with the right foot for Firmino, at the edge of the six-yard box, to head down into the goal to open the scoring.
Milner then converted from the spot with his first touch of the ball before Alexander-Arnold crossed along the ground through the Leicester City defence for Firmino to converted from inside the area.
Alexander-Arnold then punched a curling shot with his instep past the Leicester goalkeeper, to wrap up his outstanding performance.
