Phew! That was end to end! 

Liverpool pick up the much-needed three points, but the result was far from convincing. Again, questions will be asked as to why Liverpool allowed Leicester back in the game and put pressure on themselves late on in the game. As for the Foxes, they've faced some tough teams so far this season and now have an easier run in.

FULLTIME: Leicester City 2-3 Liverpool
...
PEEP PEEEP PEEEEEP! FULLTIME!!!
...
90 + 5' Late freekick to Leicester, but Liverpool see it out!
...
90 + 4' Late pressure by Leicester as Milner clears the ball. Leicester get the ball again, but the cross is blocked by Moreno. 
...
90 + 3' Schmeichel hoofs one, straight to Mignolet! Leicester are in the Charles Reep territory now. 
...
90 + 2' Vardy is booked for a late challenge on Moreno.
...
90' FIVE minutes of added on time. Yes, FIVE. Stay with us, lads and lasses. 
...
88' The Liverpool fullbacks who have done well. With a tall, lanky striker in the box, the delivery from the wide areas hasn't been consistent enough from Leicester. 
...
86' It's a bit aimless and jittery from Liverpool now. Leicester are trying to get a few moves together while Liverpool are just playing the ol' hoofball game in a bid to release Sturridge and Salah. 
...
84' With Slimani in the box, Leicester try to put in a cross in which is met by the Algerian. However, he is penalised for a foul on Lovren. 
...
82' CHANCE FOR LIVERPOOL!! Sturridge has looked lively after coming on. He tests Schmeichel from about 20 yards. 
...
80' The last 10 odd minutes have breezed by. Liverpool are trying to get some control in midfield and pass it to Salah who's cross is cleared. This game has more goals in it!
...
Substitution: Slimani is on for Albrighton. 
...
Substitution: Oxlade-Chamberlain is on for Coutinho. A surprising one from Klopp. 
...
78' Can, right before his substitution, seemed to have handled the ball in the box. A lucky escape for the midfielder! 
...
Substitutions: Milner is on for Can, Iheanacho is on for Okazaki. 
...
75' CHANCE FOR LIVERPOOL!! Sturridge gets the ball and nearly curls one into the far post! This is end to end stuff now!
...
Mignolet was booked for his challenge. 
...
74' Jeez, this is some game now. Vardy was cleaned out by Mignolet who then makes amends by saving the Englishman's penalty. That's 5 saves in 8 for the Belgian. 
...
73' PENALTY SAVED BY MIGNOLET!!!
...
72' PENALTY TO LEICESTER CITY!!!
...
Leicester are able to break and how! Demarai Gray's shot is parried by Mignolet and Vardy is there for the tap-in! That was some brilliant work by Albrighton though who put in the cross for Gray. Game on!!!
...
69' GOAL!!! Vardy scores again!
...
Jordan Henderson is found by Sturridge who breaks for Liverpool. He has time to steady himself and find the back of the net!
...
68' GOAL!!! Henderson! 1-3 to Liverpool!!!
...
67' CHANCE!! Vardy isn't able to get his shot away after Leicester break! 
...
66' Sturridge threads a nice pass for Can who isn't able to make anything out of it. Leicester break from the resulting move...
...
65' SUBSTITUTION: Sturridge is on for Firmino. 
...
64' Though Liverpool conceded through a set-piece again, they've done fairly well tonight compared to their previous games. 
...
63' It's a bit aimless from for sides as they try the good ol' hoofball. Leicester, though, are clearly much better at it. 
...
61' Liverpool knock it around well and Coutinho takes a shot from about 20 yards. The shot is blocked.  
...
59' Leicester are preparing to send on Demarai Gray. More pace on the wings!
...
57' CHANCE!! Leicester get the ball on the left flank, but Liverpool clear the ball and start a counter. Henderson, from the counter, puts in a beautifully flighted cross which is met by Can, but it's over the bar!
...
55' Liverpool get a succession of corners, the second of which was met by Lovren. He gets booked for dissent, but did have a point there!
...
54' Simpson puts in a cross that is barely cleared by Liverpool. Much better this from Leicester. Much more expansive than just trying to hoof it up front. 
...
53' A FOUL THROW by Moreno. Jeez. Didn't know this was possible in the modern game!
...
51' Gomez clatters into Chilwell. Looks painful as he led with his knee. The physio is on!
...
49' The two sides try to keep the ball, but Liverpool are doing a much better job. They've calmed things down a bit after that mini-burst from Leicester.
...
47' Leicester try to press Liverpool again. With just a one-goal deficit, this could be an interesting battle for the Liverpool defence.
