Liverpool tasted defeat in the Premier League for the sixth time this season on Saturday afternoon.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were beaten 3-1 by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in what was one of the most eventual games of the 2020/21 campaign.
Well, the final third of the match was anyway. On the 67-minute mark, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah combined superbly to give Liverpool the lead, the latter cooly firing the ball home.
Shortly after Salah’s goal, Leicester were back on level terms through James Maddison, whose free-kick somehow found a way past Alisson Becker.
The English midfielder’s strike was initially disallowed for offside, but VAR intervened and after a lengthy review, the goal was awarded to the hosts.
Three minutes later, the Foxes were in front. Alisson Becker and debutant Ozan Kabak collided just outside the area, allowing Jamie Vardy to stroke the ball into an empty net.
It was a calamitous goal to concede, but Liverpool fans are convinced it should not have stood due to a foul on Sadio Mane in the build-up.
Take a look at the incident in question for yourself below.
A foul on Mane?
Somebody please tell me how this isn’t a free-kick on Mane in the build-up to Leicester’s goal!— LiverpoolFF (@LiverpoolFF) February 13, 2021
How is this NOT a foul on Mane in the build up for the second Leicester goal? pic.twitter.com/oIgEO8Ly8K— Shez Sheikh (@shezsheikh) February 13, 2021
