Two second-half goals saw Liverpool crash out of the Carabao Cup against Leicester City at King Power Stadium.
Liverpool lost 2-0 at the King Power Stadium last night, against a well-organized Leicester City squad. The Reds’ Carabao Cup campaign came to an early end as second-half goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani pushed the home side to a convincing victory.
Shinji Okazaki put the hosts ahead just 15 minutes after the interval with a scrappy finish that placed Jurgen Klopp’s side on the back foot.
The Reds went down further in their surprise third-round exit when Islam Slimani rifled home an unstoppable shot to put the tie beyond reach.
Liverpool are yet to see a victory in the month of September so far. Their next Premier League game will be against Leicester City as well, and it will be tough task to get back to winning ways after a worrisome four-game rut. The Hard Tackle takes a look at some of the best tweets regarding the match.
Twitter was also flooded with collective disappointment over the ineffectiveness of players like Philippe Coutinho, while Jurgen Klopp also received his fair share of criticism.
