Robbie Fowler tweets Gary Lineker honest assessment of Leicester's performance v Liverpool

The former Liverpool striker was left disappointed with the Premier League leaders...

Robbie Fowler messaged Gary Lineker on Twitter on Saturday night with an honest assessment of Leicester City's Boxing Day performance at Liverpool.

Indeed, the former Liverpool forward was disappointed with Leicester's display - the Foxes do sit top of the Premier League table, after all.

And the Reds icon says he was happy to see the hosts win - but that he wanted them to win against better opposition.

Should Leicester fans be disappointed that they didn't extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table? Even if their way of doing that could have been by earning a draw?

And should the Foxes be worried that their formula for success may now be found out by more teams?

In truth, Fowler is probably being harsh and the likelihood is that it was indeed a bad day at the office. Leicester are still top and just look at how Arsenal fared at Southampton. Claudio Ranieri's men had a very Merry Christmas by comparison.

Look at Liverpool, too. They were simply horrendous at Watford but bounced back the very next week. Leicester now need to do the same.
