James Milner nets injury time penalty as Klopp’s side maintain Eight points lead

Liverpool are now eight points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table, though their title rivals are still to play tomorrow, which could see the gap cut back down to five.

Leicester remain third and they’re set to stay, despite Arsenal and West Ham lurking just two points behind – their goal difference is enough to keep them in the top three.

The international break is next, but action resumes in two weeks with Liverpool travelling to Manchester United and Leicester hosting Burnley.

That will feel like a huge point dropped by Leicester. Mane put Liverpool ahead in the first half and Maddison equalised 10 minutes from the end, but Leicester created their own problems by trying to play out from the back and it allowed Mane to charge in ahead of Albrighton, steal the ball and draw a foul.

Milner made no mistake from the spot deep into added time at the end of the second half and it’s a massive win for Liverpool, who maintain their 100 percent record in the Premier League.
