Leicester City beat Liverpool 2-0 at the King Power Stadium yesterday evening.
Okazaki’s excellent display was largely overshadowed by the performances of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez in Leicester’s 2-0 win over Liverpool last night.
Vardy got on the scoresheet twice, while Mahrez was a constant threat throughout the contest.
However, Okazaki was also absolutely superb in Leicester’s victory and the supporters in attendance in the King Power Stadium were keen to praise the Japanese international.
Okazaki has been an excellent addition for Leicester this season, with his tireless work setting the tone for the rest of his teammates.
Although he did not get the goal that his performance deserved against Liverpool, he still proved a threat to Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Leicester’s win over the Reds has continued their fairytale season, and maintained their three point lead at the top of the Premier League.
It is a quite remarkable rise, and Foxes supporters were lauding praise on all of their players last night on Twitter - with Okazaki receiving his fair share of acclaim. Here’s the best reaction.
Kante superb, Okazaki's best game for the club and Vardy outstanding. Volley up there with Izzet's against Spurs. Still top lol #LCFC— Jordan Halford (@JordanHalford) February 2, 2016
Vardy, Mahrez, Okazaki, Kante, Drinkwater & Albrighton. Those six players have been sensationally good going forward for Leicester! #LCFC— Rhys Hopkins (@RHops10) February 2, 2016
