The first half saw Leicester City attacking Liverpool’s famous Kop.
A positive start saw Leicester pressing Liverpool’s midfield and with Danny Drinkwater trying to feed Vardy, the ball came back out to Okazaki who had an early pop at goal but saw the ball fly over Liverpool’s bar.
The 8th minute saw Liverpool string a couple of nice passes together and after a clever dummy from Sturridge saw Lallana have the chance to slide the ball through, luckily for Leicester, captain Wes Morgan followed his man and kicked the ball out for a corner.
The 13th minute of the match gave us the first goal, unfortunately for Leicester fans it was for the team in red.
Sturridge won the ball in midfield after some fantastic tracking back, James Milner then picked up the ball and slid a perfectly weighted ball in for Roberto Firmino who slotted it past Kasper Schmeichel.
It’s no wonder why James Milner was Liverpool’s top assister last season following his move from Manchester City.
Daniel Amartey looked a shadow of himself against Swansea City before the international break during the first half and in the 28th minute, a late challenge on Wijnaldum saw him enter the referee’s book.
Just two minutes later Liverpool strike again!
This time it’s summer signing Mane slotting the ball home after receiving a fantastic back-heeled pass from Daniel Sturridge. 2 – 0 to Liverpool.
Things went from bad to worse for Leicester City who in the 34th minute saw right-back Danny Simpson pull up with a hamstring injury.
With little right-back cover, Ranieri elected to bring summer signing and usual centre-back Luis Hernandez on rather than push Amartey to right-back and bring on Mendy in his place.
3 minutes later superstar striker Jamie Vardy finds the back of the net! However, it was harder to miss than to score.
A short goalkick to Lucas saw him come under pressure from Shinji Okazaki. Lucas then panicked, wentto pass the ball back to Mignolet but misplaces it, going straight Jamie Vardy’s feet for a tap in.
As the referee blows for half time, Leicester go into their dressing room 2 – 1 down.
