Jamie Vardy scored his seventh goal in his last five games against Liverpool but Mohamed Salah’s two fine goals in the second half secured victory over Leicester City.
Mohamed Salah’s second-half brace sealed a 2-1 win for Liverpool over Leicester City at Anfield.
Fourth-placed Liverpool are now unbeaten in 12 Premier League matches, thanks to the brilliance of Salah.
