Liverpool vs Leicester descended into a mass brawl at the final whistle


Liverpool will always find a way. 

That's the sense the Reds are giving the rest of the Premier League after securing a late 2-1 win over Leicester. 

James Maddison looked to have cancelled out Sadio Mane's opener, but with 95 minutes on the clock, James Milner stepped up to take the deciding penalty. 

It means Jurgen Klopp's men continue their perfect start to the season, with a quite astonishing 24 points from eight games. 

Liverpool are now on a run of 17 Premier League victories, dating back to last season. At home, they are unbeaten in 44 games. 

While they couldn't be going into the international break riding a higher wave, the game did end on a somewhat unsavoury note. 

At full-time, Leicester's Ayoze Perez completely lost his head and was seen engaging in a furious row with Andy Robertson, presumably over the penalty decision.

Within moments, players from both sides had got involved and the referee had lost all control. 

It's little wonder Leicester were so exasperated.

They were the last team to take points off Liverpool at Anfield and they must have thought they'd done it again, especially as the foul that led to the spot-kick was slightly contentious. 

Instead, Brendan Rodgers was unable to exact revenge on Klopp, his successor, with a result that would have taken his new club second in the table. 

As for the hosts, they march on in their quest for a first league title since 1990. 

They say winning without being at your best is the mark of champions - and a week on from that poor, yet victorious display against Sheffield United, that's exactly what Liverpool have done once again.
