Leaders miss chance to open up seven-point gap as defender earns Leicester 1-1 draw

Liverpool missed the chance to open a seven-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester City.

The leaders looked on course for an eighth successive home league win when Sadio Mane put them ahead in the third minute.

But Jurgen Klopp's side were unable to build on that positive start and the Foxes forced their way back into the match.

James Maddison missed a chance to equalise before Harry Maguire put them level in the second minute of first-half stoppage time.

Maddison came close again after the break before Kasper Schmeichel denied Liverpool's Roberto Firmino at the other end.

Liverpool extended their lead over Man City to five points, while Leicester drop to 11th despite earning a valiant point.
