Leicester City grabbed second-half goals through Shinji Okazaki and record signing Islam Slimani to earn a 2-0 victory over Liverpool in the League Cup third round on Tuesday.
Liverpool’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was given his first start by manager Juergen Klopp following his move from Arsenal, while Phillipe Coutinho was also in the lineup at the King Power Stadium where the visitors dominated play before the interval.
Eight-times League Cup winners Liverpool failed to take their chances though and Leicester woke up in the second half with Okazaki’s scuffed shot giving them a 65th-minute lead.
Algerian Slimani made it 2-0 with a stunning left-foot shot into the top corner in the 78th minute.
The sides meet again at the weekend in the Premier League.
