Leicester City vs Liverpool EFL Cup Match Highlights as Okazaki, Slimani dump Klopp’s men out of EFL Cup

Liverpool’s EFL Cup campaign came to an early end as second-half goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani gave Leicester City a 2-0 win at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.

Substitute Okazki – on in place of the injured Leonardo Ulloa – was in the right place to pick up a loose ball inside the penalty area to break the deadlock in the 65th minute.

Strike partner Slimani settled the third-round tie in style 13 minutes later, sending a left-footed drive flashing beyond goalkeeper Danny Ward to get his third goal in the competition this season.

The result means Liverpool – beaten finalists in 2016 – are still yet to record a win in September, a worrying four-game rut they will hope to stop on Saturday when the two teams meet again at the same venue in Premier League action.
