Gary Lineker reacts on Twitter to Leicester’s defeat to Liverpool

Leicester City went down 1-0 to Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

Gary Lineker has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Leicester City’s defeat to Liverpool away from home on Boxing Day.

Leicester went down 1-0 to the Reds at Anfield in the Premier League earlier today. Christian Benteke’s goal in the 63rd minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.

Former Leicester striker Lineker was following the game, and this was his reaction to the final result:

Lineker was, of course, joking about sacking Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri, but many Premier League observers will have been surprised that Foxes failed to pick up a point at Anfield.

Leicester have been the story of the season so far this season and are in the running for a top-four finish. A win for the Foxes against Liverpool at Anfield will not have come as a surprise at all.

Ranieri's side will take on Manchester City at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Tuesday evening, while Liverpool will face Sunderland away from home at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday.
