Leicester return to winning ways through striker's brace and a superb Drinkwater goal

Leicester City 3-1 Liverpool

Two goals from Jamie Vardy and Danny Drinkwater's stunning strike gave Leicester City victory over Liverpool, moving them out of the Premier League's bottom three.

With Craig Shakespeare in charge after Claudio Ranieri's exit last week, Leicester scored their first Premier League goal of 2017 when Vardy slotted in from Marc Albrighton's through-ball.

Drinkwater doubled the lead on 39 minutes, firing in from 25 yards, before Vardy added a third after the break, heading in Christian Fuchs' cross.

Liverpool got a goal back through Philippe Coutinho but could not stop Leicester climbing to 15th, two points above the drop zone.

Liverpool remain fifth, one point behind Arsenal and ahead of Manchester United having played a match more than both.
