LONDON: An error by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson helped Leicester come from behind to earn a 3-1 win on Saturday, with the champions losing three successive Premier League games for the first time since November 2014, when they were managed by Brendan Rodgers. Liverpool was forced into another defensive reshuffle due to Fabinho being injured, with the January loan signing Ozan Kabak handed his debut. The 20-year-old's slip let Jamie Vardy in the first half, only for the Leicester striker to hit the crossbar.

It was Trent Alexander-Arnold's turn to hit the woodwork from a free-kick just after the interval before Mohamed Salah finally broke the deadlock in the 68th minute after being set up by a superb Roberto Firmino backward flick.

After VAR had overturned a penalty awarded to Leicester, James Maddison equalized from a free-kick, before Alisson, who made two glaring errors in Liverpool's loss to Manchester City last weekend, cost his side again.

The Brazilian came racing out of his goal to meet a long ball over the top but collided with Kabak and allowed Vardy in to score in the 81st minute.

Harvey Barnes made sure of the win four minutes later to complete another miserable afternoon for Liverpool, who have now won just two of their last 10 league games. With Manchester United not in action until Sunday, Leicester jumped to second in the standings, while Liverpool sits fourth, 10 points off leaders City having played two games more. Agencies
