Mohamed Salah fired Liverpool to a 2-1 win over Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Liverpool levelled seven minutes after the interval.

Egypt winger Salah took Sadio Mane's brilliant pass and showed good footwork before drilling past Kasper Schmeichel for his 22nd club goal of an incredible debut season following his move from Roma.

Salah then won it for Liverpool in the 76th minute, turning away from Leicester defender Harry Maguire and firing in at the Kop end.

Liverpool, unbeaten in 12 league games, remain fourth and now hold a four-point advantage over fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the race to qualify for the Champions League.

"It is a maximum satisfaction to win like this. Today was pretty much perfect," Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said.

"Mo was fantastic with his dribbling and his vision. I couldn't ask more from him."

At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea climbed above United into second place.

Antonio Conte's side made the perfect start when German defender Antonio Rudiger headed home from Willian's free-kick in the third minute.

Eden Hazard was rested, but his replacement Danny Drinkwater did a passable impression of the brilliant Belgian, the midfielder bagging his first goal for the Blues with a blistering strike in the ninth minute. © AFP
