40min: The ball sits up nicely for Gakpo to have a pop from the edge of the area after a bit of midfield ping-ball, but his half-volley is weak.
37min: Gakpo’s curled effort from inside the area is deflected wide. From the following corner, Gravenberch feeds Doak into a shooting position, but the youngster is rash and his effort is miles wide.
36min: Jones has struggled so far. Was caught completely out of position for Leicester’s goal and is not providing much in the way of attacking intent from deep.
34min: Liverpool have clearly been the better team, despite trailing, but Leicester are so threatening on the break. They keep their shape and are ready to pose down the wings.
32min: A calmer few minutes, and they are needed, as Liverpool probe in midfield once again. Leicester’s shape is very impressive.
29min: Elliott fancies a crack at this free kick... but it’s straight into the wall.
28min: Liverpool win a free kick on the edge of the area after Gakpo is tripped by Justin.
26min: Gakpo is everywhere. You feel if (when) Liverpool score, he will be involved. He is so busy.
24min: First booking for the game goes to Richardo for wiping out Gravenberch. He can’t have any complaints, but he does of course.
22min: What do Liverpool need to do?! Gakpo is free at the back post to head at goal, it beats the keeper but not Coady on the line!
