Leicester City v Liverpool

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino star as leaders win 4-0 at King Power Stadium to strengthen title claims

Roberto Firmino scored twice and Trent-Alexander Arnold also starred as Liverpool moved 13 points clear of second-placed Leicester City with a 4-0 win at King Power Stadium.

Firmino was perfectly placed to open the scoring on 31 minutes when he met Alexander-Arnold’s pinpoint cross from the left to send a header past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Liverpool moved through the gears with three second-half goals to put the game out of reach.

Substitute James Milner made it 2-0 after 71 minutes, scoring with his first touch from the penalty spot after Caglar Soyuncu had handled Alexander-Arnold's corner. 

Three minutes later another inviting delivery from Alexander-Arnold was swept home by Firmino to make it 3-0.

The impressive Alexander-Arnold added his side's fourth goal with a powerful low finish set up by Sadio Mane.
