Liverpool made a stupid mistake in the battle with Manchester City for the title of the champions after reaching Leicester 1: 1 at home.
So the "red" missed seven points in front of a big competitor who lost surprisingly 1: 2 of Newcastle yesterday.
Nevertheless, Liverpool is the leader in the rankings, with five "citizens" points. Mane (3) hosted hosts, and Maguire (45) hit the guests.
It should be noted that referee Martin Atkinson seriously injured Liverpool several times and dismissed "Merseysides" by failing to penalize them in the second half, and before a 1-0 break, he could show the red card Maguireu.
Liverpool started a crazy match and initially pressed the guests against their penal box. In the third minute, Merseyside managed to score.
Then Firmino dropped the ball at Manea, who entered the blaze and cut the net for 1: 0. A magnificent start for the hosts who could even score another goal immediately, but Firmino failed to beat Schmeichel.
In those first minutes, the guests did not know where they were but could not make up for it after Alison had mistakenly replaced the ball that led to Madison's fall in Liverpool but without penalty for the guests.
Of many repetitions, it was obvious that Henderson actually deceives Madison but out of the box. In the next few minutes, Juergen Klapa players were surprised that they were very nervous and quickly took advantage of the "fox".
In 25 minutes, Alison again mistakenly replaced Leicester, but Madison headed for the air. In the next few minutes, the action was mostly developed in the middle of the court, without the possibility of catching.
At the end of the half-time, the most interesting moments came. In 41 minutes, Liverpool demanded the exclusion of Harry Maguire, who defeated Mane, who remained alone against Schmeichel.
However, Maguire was just decorated with yellow color, and in the first half of the time he even managed to equalize. Then Liverpool defender made a series of ridiculous mistakes, which took advantage of Maguire's 1-1.
Amazingly, Lewerson started better in the second half and could even make a full turn, but Madison entered the penalty area of the host and missed a great opportunity.
In 53 minutes, the "foxes" created a chance, and this time Firmino almost missed a spectacular goal but Alison showed the class and saved. These positions stunned the "messengers" and brought the game forward.
One hour later, Liverpool jumped to punishment for Ricard's offense against Firmina, but Judge Atkinson stopped and did not pay a penalty. "The Reds" was thrown into a fierce attack, and in 75 minutes Firmino fired heavily, but Schumacher saved him.
In the end, Liverpool pressed, but he came to a serious situation Mane dismissed. So Liverpool admitted a childish shootout and won only a point in the struggle with Manchester City for the title of the champions.
