Leicester went down 1-0 to the Reds away from home at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, with Christian Benteke’s goal in the 63rd minute proving to be the difference between the two sides.
Gritty, organised and tenacious again from Leicester City but in defeat this time to LFC. Top four and CL football a realistic target.— Craig Burley (@CBurleyESPN) December 26, 2015
