Manager Jurgen Klopp called Liverpool’s reaction to going a goal down against Leicester the “best I’ve ever seen” after Mohamed Salah’s double helped them come from behind to win at Anfield.
Jamie Vardy gave the visitors an early lead when he poked home from a Riyad Mahrez pass before Salah equalised in the second half.
The Egypt international then turned Harry Maguire on the edge of the area before firing in his second of the day – and 17th Premier League goal of the season – to give Liverpool the lead.
Klopp described the hosts’ performance as “perfect” and the Reds, who will finish the year in fourth place, extended their unbeaten run to 15 games.
Leicester stay in eighth but have now gone five games without a victory.
“On perfect days we win football games,” said Klopp.
“The crowd were unbelievable and we needed them today to score these two goals. It’s a good team performance and a well-deserved win.”
The only concern will surround the fitness of match-winner Salah, who Klopp said was “limping” when he was substituted with less than 10 minutes left to play.
“We have to check it,” added the German. “We tried to change it as quick as possible and of course that is not too good.”
