Coutinho goal can't save Reds at Leicester

Premier League Feb 27, 2017 Leicester City 3 Liverpool 1 at the King Power Stadium

FEBRUARY 27, 2017 PREMIER LEAGUE: LEICESTER CITY 3 LIVERPOOL 1

Philippe Coutinho scored his seventh goal of the season but it could not inspire a dramatic comeback for Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.

Premier League champions Leicester made a bright start with Simon Mignolet forced to make a couple of early saves.

But he had little chance of stopping Jamie Vardy's opening goal on 27 minutes or Danny Drinkwater's thumping 25-yard volley 11 minutes later.

Vardy headed in the hosts third after half-time before a strong run from Emre Can paved the way for Coutinho to finish into the bottom right corner from the edge of the penalty area on 67 minutes.
