Roberto Firmino doubled the lead just before half-time, heading in from a James Milner corner — his first goal of 2018-19.

However, Leicester pulled one back when Alisson Becker was dispossessed by Kelechi Iheanacho, who squared for Rachid Ghezzal to convert.

The Foxes pressed in search of an equalizer, but the Reds held out to secure the three points and make it four wins in a row.
