Jurgen Klopp set his side up with far more tactical nous than he had done against the Hornets and West Brom, the rewards for which were plentiful as the Reds beat the Foxes 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.
Anfield witnessed a bizarre miss from Christian Benteke - but also the winning goal from the Belgian after he replaced Divock Origi in the first half.
Origi came off injured and the target man deputised for him by scoring a valuable winner against Leicester. The 1-0 win has a far better ring to it than Liverpool's last league result...
And, in terms of performances, there were plenty of positives for Klopp's men. Jordan Henderson was heavily praised, Emre Can was heavily praised and Dejan Lovren was even more heavily praised.
But Adam Lallana was also seen as quite an unsung hero by many Liverpool fans on Twitter after the Leicester win. Indeed, despite his end product still lacking a great deal, the Reds playmaker's work-rate and pressing were highly valued by supporters on social media. And here's what they said of the 26-year-old on Saturday evening:

Lovren, Clyne, Can, Lallana and Mignolet were all excellent today. Due a mention. #LFC— Finlay Russell (@mrfinlayrussell) December 26, 2015
Credit to Lallana as well. Criticised him last week, but he was MoTM for his outstanding battling & pressing for the full 90 minutes. #LFC— Matthew Graham (@MattGraham90) December 26, 2015
