Sadio Mane's fourth goal of the season and Roberto Firmino's header give PL leaders 2-1 victory at Leicester City

Liverpool maintained their winning start to the season with a 2-1 victory at Leicester City.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring on 10 minutes when he fired in after Andrew Robertson charged through and teed him up for his fourth goal in four matches.

Alisson Becker saved from Leicester's Demarai Gray and James Maddison before Roberto Firmino doubled Liverpool's lead on the stroke of half-time.

Firmino headed in James Milner’s outswinging corner for his first goal of the season.

Rachid Ghezzal marked his first PL start for Leicester with a goal on 63 minutes, tapping in after Kelechi Iheanacho dispossessed Alisson, but Liverpool held on.
