Premier League champions cruise to impressive victory

Powered by automated translation

Liverpool cruised to an impressive 3-0 win over Leicester City at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday as they set a new club record of 64 straight unbeaten home league games.

An own goal from Jonny Evans and headers from Diogo Jota, continuing his streak of scoring in his first four league games at Anfield, and Roberto Firmino were enough to give Jurgen Klopp a victory over his predecessor Brendan Rodgers.

The result moves defending champions Liverpool level on 20 points with leaders Tottenham Hotspur while Leicester are fourth, level on 18 points with third-placed Chelsea.

Although the Reds were without Mohamed Salah, who had tested positive for Covid-19, and the injured Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold, as well as a string of other absentees, it was an impressive performance before they return to Champions League action against Atalanta on Wednesday.
