Premier League: Liverpool dominates Leicester thanks to a double from Diogo Jota (2-0), Mo Salah has returned


Liverpool keep the pace. This Thursday evening, the Reds beat Leicester (2-0), during the 24th day of the Premier League. At Anfield, a double from Diogo Jota (34th, 87th) was enough for the happiness of Jürgen Klopp’s men. Especially since the latter, with another game late, consolidate their second place in the English championship standings and come back to nine lengths behind leader Manchester City. As for the Foxes, they are three games behind and remain twelfth.

Just back from the CAN, Mohamed Salah started this meeting on the bench of substitutes. Without the Premier League’s top scorer (16 goals), Liverpool therefore relied on their runner-up, namely Diogo Jota, whose counter was at ten goals before this match. Shortly after half an hour, the Portuguese followed well to score for the first time, victoriously taking over a header from Virgil van Dijk badly repelled by Kasper Schmeichel (34th, 1-0).

Salah almost celebrated his comeback with a goal

At the very end of the game, the striker was again talked about, again deceiving the opposing goalkeeper, after a very good service from Joel Matip (87th, 2-0). Diogo Jota has now scored 17 goals in all competitions for Liverpool this season. It is already his best tally in a single campaign for a Premier League club. Meanwhile, and more precisely in the 60th minute, Mohamed Salah had entered the game. In a period when Liverpool outrageously dominated the debates, but could not manage to take shelter, the Egyptian took his responsibilities . If he came up against Schmeichel several times (74th, 75th, 90th + 3), he also saw his ball hit the bar (78th).

As an extension of this same action, Luis Diaz, for his great debut in the Premier League in his new colors, also sought the last bastion of Leicester, then insisting a few minutes later (82nd). Kasper Schmeichel clearly prevented the score from being heavier, as when he also intervened, in the first act, in front of Trent Alexander-Arnold (19th) but also Roberto Firmino (42nd, 45th).

Leicester suffered most of the time, with just five shots to 21 (ten of them on target) for the Reds. Brendan Rodgers’ men had the first chance of this meeting, but James Maddison forced Alisson to pull out a very big save (7th). The Foxes, who had nevertheless won the first leg (1-0), on December 28, did not confirm and even recorded a third match without a win in the elite. As for Liverpool, the good series continues with this start to the year 2022 which is still just as almost perfect (six wins, two draws).
