Liverpool humiliates Leicester city to stay top of Premier League table



Liverpool increased their lead on the Premier League title race with a dominant force display to humiliate league rival Leicester 4-0. They are now 13-point lead at the top of the league table on Thursday.
Roberto Firmino scored twice from Trent Alexander-Arnold brilliant crosses either side of James Milner's penalty before the brilliant Alexander-Arnold rounded off the scoring himself.
So far, Liverpool has remain unbeaten this year in the league and may finally end a 30-year wait to win the title.
Just recently, two heavy defeats in five days have proved to be a reality check for Leicester's title ambitions with their focus now on making sure they hold off a chasing pack including Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United to secure a return to the 2020/2021 Champions League.
Fresh from winning the Club World Cup for the first time in Qatar on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp's men showed no sign of fatigue from a congested December schedule as they outclassed Leicester from start to finish.
Egyptian striker ‘Salah’ has refound his scoring touch of late, including an audacious finish from the narrowest of angles against Salzburg earlier this month to secure Liverpool's place in the last 16 of the Champions League.
An opener for the runaway league leaders was only a matter of time and duly arrived just after the half hour mark when Alexander-Arnold's cross was headed powerfully down past Schmeichel.
Liverpool, by contrast, demonstrated why they are Champions League winners and Premier League champions in waiting.
Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson showed boundless energy to continue bombing forward from full-back and providing the ammunition for Mane, Salah and Firmino.
Robertson was the provider for the first big chance of the second half when Firmino did not get a strong enough connection to turn in the Scotland captain's cross.
Klopp's men finally had the breathing space they desired via the arm of Caglar Soyuncu as he handled Alexander-Arnold's corner 20 minutes from time.
Milner had only been on the field a matter of seconds and stroked home the penalty with his first touch.
Three minutes later, Firmino doubled his tally of goals and Alexander-Arnold added a third assist with a driven low cross that the Brazilian expertly cushioned before slotting into the top corner.
Alexander-Arnold then capped a magnificent performance by blasting low and hard beyond Schmeichel into the bottom corner.
Liverpool  next match fixtures will be against Wolverhampton on 29th December 2019.
