Premier League champions collapse to 3-1 defeat at King Power Stadium

Reigning champions Liverpool crashed to a dismal 3-1 defeat at Leicester City to leave their Premier League top four hopes in jeopardy.

Goalkeeper Alisson Becker's latest blunder sparked a stunning collapse from Jurgen Klopp's beleaguered side on Saturday.

It was a third successive defeat for the Merseysiders which would not only appear to end any chance of retaining the title, but cast doubt on their ability to secure a place in next season's Champions League.

The calamitous nature of Liverpool's late meltdown raises serious questions about their bid to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Mohamed Salah had given the Reds the lead in the second half at the King Power Stadium.

But James Maddison's VAR-assisted equaliser was followed by a howler from away keeper Alisson, whose miscued clearance was converted by Jamie Vardy.

It was another miserable afternoon for Alisson following his two costly mistakes in last weekend's 4-1 defeat against Manchester City.
