    First time the Leicester defense has been properly penetrated.

  • Leicester 0-0 Liverpool

    52. Excellent break from Leciester and a lovely one-two between Iheancho and Dewsbury-Hall.

  • Leicester 0-0 Liverpool

    46. Maddison vs Fabinho will be a key battle second half.

  • Leicester 0-0 Liverpool

    The second half gets underway. No changes for either team at the break.

  • Leicester 0-0 Liverpool

    Salah last missed a penalty in 2017 which shows how prolific he has been from 12 yards.

    Might be a good omen for the Foxes?

  • Leicester 0-0 Liverpool

    As for Leicester, they will need to work on their sloppy passing when playing out from the back.

    But if they can get Maddison into the game more they will cause Liverpool problems. He has linked up brilliantly with Vardy so far.

    Schmeichel has performed admirably so far and if he keeps it up there is a chance Leicester will keep an unlikely and rare clean sheet.

  • Leicester 0-0 Liverpool

    Liverpool’s front three have not clicked tonight and need more quality in the final third if they are to get the breakthrough.

    Jota has got into some dangerous positions but his final touch or shotting has let him down.

  • Leicester 0-0 Liverpool

    Salah has missed the best two chances of the match so far – one an uncharacteristic penalty miss.

    34. Vardy in but Matip intervenes with a last-ditch tackle.
