Despite the many absences, such as that of Mohamed Salah, Jürgen Klopp’s men did not suffer against Leicester (3-0), Sunday evening as part of the 9th day of the Premier League.
Life without Mohamed Salah and the others has gone well for Liverpool. Opposed to Leicester on Sunday on behalf of the 9th day of the English championship, the Reds held their opponents despite the absence of the Egyptian star striker (Covid-19) and many others (Henderson, Van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Thiago Alcantara, Oxlade-Chamberlain…).
Thanks to a goal from a header against his own camp from Evans (21st) and another head shot, given by Diogo Jota before the break (40th), Liverpool had a big step towards victory before Roberto Firmino does not offer the assurance of a successful evening, always in the lead (3-0, 86th).
Jürgen Klopp, who was right to be worried about the avalanche of injuries that hit his squad recently, must be largely relieved by the performance observed this Sunday evening.
Diogo Jota, he did very hard. The Portuguese have scored one goal in each of the last four home games he has played, a first in club history. And Liverpool, tied on points with Tottenham at the top of the table, stretches their unbeaten streak at home in the league to 64 games.
